The topic does not appear to be notable by Wikipedia standards (see WP:N and WP:CORP). I can find no coverage of it in any secondary source at all, let alone significant coverage in reliable, independent secondary sources. Furthermore, the user who created the page has not edited any other pages, suggesting a strong personal involvement with the topic and a resulting conflict of interest.

Non-notable film lacking non-trivial support. Mentions are passing in nature, very little about the movie. reddogsix (talk) 01:13, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Soft Delete To the contrary of the nominator's statement, the article DOES include some rather substantial coverage.[7] and more is available. BUT as we have no confirmation of it completing WP:NFF is failed. Allow back when notability is more strongly established. Schmidt, Michael Q. 03:57, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

No indication of notability, although of course some of the people named are notable. Appears to be part of a massive WP:COI promotional exercise relating to Brice Stratford, the Owle Schreame Awards, and just about anything connected with them. Numerous WP:SPA accounts are involved. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 00:08, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment While the individual actors are notable, notability is not necessarily inherited to the family; The family itself must also have reliable significant coverage to be kept. From my uninitiated look around, "rep" here means the Repertory theatre production at Theatre Royal, Windsor and not a (political) representative in a Windsor constituency, and may need more work to filter out the unrelated abbreviations here. Mentioned here (appears routinal coverage). Passing mentions under a Jean Miller context here and here.野狼院ひさし u/t/c 03:55, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
  • keep Have just updated the article's references and citations to help support it further. For what it's worth, the peak period of this family and the Windsor repertory company was from the early 1930's to the early 1980's - consequently much of the supporting commentary is not available online. Does this discount it? the phrase "Windsor rep acting dynasty" was first used by John Counsell in his article "So Who Needs Subsidy, Anyway?" (Scottish Theatre, Inverkeithing, Scottish Theatre, Vol.2 No.3, May 1970) and was used regularly in the newspaper reviews (specifically the Windsor Express) and the theatre's programmes throughout the 70's and early 80's.

In terms of the significance of the family as a whole, the book "Counsell's Opinion" (by John Counsell, 1963) discusses it at great length, and the Genealogist's Magazine did a large feature on the family in 2002, connecting them with Hilary Tindall, John Loder and Roy Walker, and then did a follow-up in 2012 connecting them with Brice Stratford, James Stratford and Colin Jeavons. Jean Miller discusses the significance of the family as a whole in various interviews. Here is an illustrative excerpt from an interview with her for the British Library, in case you can't access any of them online: (Blakely, Emily "Theatre Archive Project: Interview with Jean Miller" British Library 14 May 2008)

Well, my sister was a scenic artist and my brother-in-law was a very famous art director in films ... He was put up for an Oscar for Ryan’s Daughter. He made his name with Genevieve, I don’t suppose you’ve seen it? About the car who goes to Brighton. It’s a wonderful film. Anyway he made his name. He’d just come out of the Air Force when he made it and that was his first and it made his name. He did Fiddler on the Roof, all sorts of films, he worked for Disney, all sorts of things. So Michael acted, my brother-in-law was an art director, my sister was a scenic, my uncle and aunt were actors and directors, my two cousins were on the stage. Then Polly, my youngest daughter was until she had an accident. And her father-in-law - great grandfather-in-law...? grandfather-in-law! - was somebody called John Loder who was an Old Etonian Englishman and he went to Germany and Marlene Dietrich wanted somebody with a dinner jacket. And of course being an Old Etonian he had no money but he had all the right clothes and he was a very good looking man and he went into films, starting with Marlene Dietrich. And then he went to Hollywood and he was very famous but [is] forgotten now. He had five wives and one was the very famous Hedy Lamarr. Does that mean anything to you? It’s like saying he was married to Marilyn Monroe, practically, a very beautiful, sexy woman. So it’s all gone on round me.
