        Thanks cornershop, it seems to be Richard Gregory that, i wonder if he used two names like many background artists did?
        I have just found out that Arthur Sandifer also went by Andre Ducane.

        I can confirm that this isn't actually the actor we have long thought was Richard Gregory, he IS actually Charles Gilliard.

      Ernie Priest aka Ernest Priest

      A Policeman in Green Fingers (1947), i couldn't make him out though.
      A Stage Door Keeper in Woman to Woman (1947) i can't source a copy of this film
      Unattributed in Seven Days to Noon, i noted several uncredited character parts in this, there is an extensive extended cast list for this, UM63 plays a character part, a Train Guard with dialogue, is UM63 Ernie Priest
      Scott Palmer has kindly told that he is has Ernie in Odd Man Out and No Room at the Inn as well, he noted that UM63 is in these as well.

      It seems that the long unknown UM63 could be Ernie Priest who died around 1967/8

        IMDb seen to identify John Gordon as The Surgeon in The Vicious Circle (1957), the said surgeon is clearly UM5 in the film, can anyone confirm or deny that John is indeed UM5 or not,

                He was a founder member of the Film Artistes Guild (FAG) in 1927, he had appeared in silent films.

                Up to 1935 he was Casting Director of the Film Artistes Association (FAA) which was the successor to the FAG , he casted up to 5.000 extras for films and he 'Knew Type'.

                In 1935 he became a talent spotter and discovered Camilla Erwin and Penelope Dudley-Ward.

                He appeared in 'The Wishbone' in 1933 (may be a lost film, the BFI don't have a copy).

                He was an active supporting artiste in films in the mid 60's, so must have had at least a 45 to 50 year career

                Could he be Movie Dude's Unknown Male 29? Gerald Lovell's ' Gerald Lawson's Dad'

                Massive thanks to Dave Wright for much of the above information.
                Happy to announce that Reggie De Beer is Movie Dude's Unknown Male 8, a longtime unknown, thanks to Gerald Lovell for help with this identification.

                  Finally got there, three weeks later. If that;s not her, I don't think she's in the film:

                    Is the West 12 Shopping Centre ("formerly the Concorde Centre") the same building as The Shepherds Bush Centre?

                      Blimey, I wonder how big the crowds were.

                        Funny you should ask that, Gerald. He was "packing them in" eight years earlier:

                        The Stage, 26th March 1964

                        I thought I'd keep the other article to highlight the contrast between
                        hysterical pop fans & onlookers at the National Coal Board gathering.

                        Several revelations about Mr. Gilliard there. Like fellow extra Ivor Spencer, he was a toastmaster, had a creepy "human dummy" act and a famous (at the time) mentor in Fred Archer. I'm trying to find out if he's the same Charles Gilliard who regularly wrote letters to the Harrow Observer. If so, he lived in Eastcoat Lane.

                          Eastcote Lane, not "Eastcoat".

                          Posting attachments this time as I've taken up so much space today. The article is from the Harrow Observer again (1st June 1971). Charles Gilliard died in Harrow and his age here, 56, tallies with the year of birth at IMDb so it's definitely the same man. He was an antique dealer as well as a "human dummy" and toastmaster? Wow.

                          What's more, he's wearing his toastmaster gear in these old screencaps from one of my favourite TV shows, Moody and Pegg. Cast regulars Tony Selby and Judy Cornwell are with Charles in the second image. Is the other gentleman his real-life colleague Howell James, by any chance?:

                            It's Fred Berman, cornershop, a colleague in both extra work an toastmastering or is it toasting?
                            the latter is also a Jamaican rap.

                              You brought to mind an actor who was in the film version of 'Please Sir!'. I had to be reminded - he's actually Fred Beauman.

                              Fred Berman I don't know at all.

                            Doctor Who fans might recognise this extra's name but the only image of I have seen online is
                            rather indistinct. These are slightly better. Coincidentally, all three appearances were in 1969:
