  1. You have misspelt Kate Guerney’s name it should be Gurney. I have seen Bobbie Rudd in both of his films Sam’s Boy and the Skipper’s Wooing and he was very good. Shame no one knows anything about his.

    • Many thanks Janice for the correction. I have updated Kate Gurney’s page with the correct spelling.
