    Watching The Boys from Brazil (1979) I noticed the credit introducing Jeremy Black

    Looking him up on the IMDb I see that he is credited as playing:
    Jack Curry / Simon Harrington / Erich Doring / Bobby Wheelock

    His only other listed credit is as himself for:
    Mystic Voices: The Story of the Pequot War (2004) (TV)

    He apparently plus all of the children, the cloned children of Hitler

        A nice solo card from A CHRISTMAS CAROL (1984) and it seems it really was Anthony's debut:

          Tom goes for a ride, and as is often the case, this wasn't Janie's first film.

            Again, Hungry Hill (1947) isn't Dermot Walsh's first film, but he's certainly got a big role as Wild Johnnie Brodrick:

            His missus-to-be, Hazel Court, is allegedly in the film, but I couldn't spot her.

              I think that Horst Buchholz was introduced in The Magnificent Seven 1960 but we already knew him from Tiger Bay 1959.

                I wonder if The Magnificent Seven was made first, but released after Tiger Bay.....

                ....like Beeethoven's 1st and 2nd piano concertos.

                  I was quite surprised when I saw this at the beginning of "Saturday Night And Sunday Morning" since I always assumed Hylda Baker had been knocking about for years prior to 1960... on stage and in her own TV series it seems so, but evidently this was indeed her very first film.

                    The spouse of star Ginger Rogers gets this, as well as her, in Beautiful Stranger (1954):

                    It does seem this was actually his first film. The cast at the end is listed "in order of appearance", but it isn't really as good old Ginge gets her name shown at the top, whereas dear old Lil(l)y Kann is actually the first person we see.

                      Jane Seymour gets an "& introducing" credit in "Live & Let Die" but she'd been in numerous productions prior to this one!

                        Not really fair on Clive at all since he'd been appearing in films and television for more than 10 years prior to making Walk a Crooked Path (1969).

                          I remember Walk a Crooked Path. This film was shown on LWT I think, late one night. DVD favourites Tenniel Evans, who played a gay schoolteacher, andscreen wife Faith Brook were both unfamiliar to me at the time but I stuck with it and have waited 30 years for a second viewing. Have Network, or perhaps BFI Flipside, considered releasing this one?

                          Catching up with posts

                          Sad to see the now late Suzanna Leigh's name in Gerald's screencap from Bomb in the High Street (#43), a film I've not heard of before. Ditto June Mitchell, sister of earlier subject Christine Nordern. Ironically, I found that out during my anniversary viewing of D-Day: Sixth of June a couple of days ago.

                          Well remembered, Clive. She appeared with the next subject in that James Bond film:

                          How could we forget this one, Gerald?! Our friend John Carson's credit in the Edgar Wallace film Locker Sixty-Nine (1962):

                            And introducing Claire Griswold ... In the Wanted: Dead or Alive episode Ransom for a Nun (1959):


                            The only occasion she was credited as Gris-wald, if her filmography is complete. This is the actress who played the Miniature doll that comes to life in perhaps my favourite episode of The Twilight Zone. An unexpectedly charming performance by Robert Duvall as her innocent admirer. Claire was married for almost exactly half a century to film director Sydney Pollack until his death 10 years ago last month. Sorry to read she died from Parkinson's Disease.

                            R.I. P., Claire. Pictured with a young Mr. Duvall:
