Cat Burglar (Scene Stealer): In the very beginning of the film the family goes on holiday to the seaside just before war is declared. Celia carries a black and white cat down the stairs and takes him next door to be watched by the neighbor.
We learn the cat’s name is Pickles. When the daughters have all left and their father is on his own, Pickles is his only company and even meets him on the stairs he comes home.
But that doesn’t keep Pickles from coming into the kitchen to sneak a bit of dad’s dinner!
