No idea what the connection would be.

How does the registration number look to you? UPD420F or is it Macky999's UPD 428F from the previous page in this thread?

I'm not sure what the connection is with Benny HIll in that picture. His character doesn't appear in the scene with the milk float (where Charlie is getting a lift while trying to see what is on the film reel he's been given). Benny Hill didn't become famous for Ernie the fastest milkman in the west until a couple of years later. Maybe its just that as an ex-milkman he couldn't stay away - or maybe he was the only one on the crew who cloud drive a milk float.

Damn, I'm going to have to go home and watch that scene to see if I can pick the driver,
