FAQ: Where is he?

Answer: We have no idea, but he had this film listed in his filmography and we followed suit. We also have this excerpt from Premiere (July 1991) about the film:

Roddy McDowall: When I came to visit you that night on the set and walked into the theater, I thought it was a gag, because up on the screen —
Maureen O'Hara: Was How Green Was My Valley.
RM: Was How Green Was My Valley, and you and John Candy and Ally Sheedy sitting there watching it.
MO: Ally Sheedy agrees to go out with me to see if she can make friends with me. And so that's why we were at the movie, and we decided the movie should be How Green Was My Valley.
So ... either RM is there as Huw Morgan, or he's sitting in the audience somewhere near Ms. O'Hara. If you spot him, please drop us a line!

Aha! Mystery Solved: Maureen O'Hara wrote in her autobiography, 'Tis Herself (©2004 Simon & Schuster, New York, NY):

Roddy McDowall came to visit me one day on the set and got talked into a brief cameo, but I think that scene was cut from the picture.
Maybe the cut scene will show up in the DVD?
