McDowell + McDowall = McMcDowellDowall

Roddy                                         Malcolm

Actors Malcolm McDowell and the late Roddy McDowall both have similar surnames. Indeed, for many years I got them confused, and kept on wondering when Little Alex was going to turn up in Bedknobs and Broomsticks.  Only recently have I learnt to tell them apart by using their Christian names and their faces.  Now, I expect you’ve found yourself asking the question, ‘have they ever been in the same film together?’ nearly as often as I have.

The answer is no.
