    Sadly, that’s not at all easy (AFAICS). Where would you like it moved to? It might be easier for Euryale to just add it again as a new post

        • There once was The Ugly Duckling with extras all nameless and down (in 1959):

          But in fact rather cheery and watching from the Locarno Dance Hall balcony in Streatham is Arnold Schulkes

          Old timers looking on I can see are Len Llewellyn, Muriel Greenslade, Mabel Etherington, possibly Jack Hetherington with his leg up and in make-up and given the name of Mr. Timkins, and Bunny Seaman. Muriel reappears near the end of the film at the jewellery and fashion show

            It's Richard Wattis and John Harvey who are the men from the Yard in this one, here questioned by crooked photographer Harold Goodwin plus Roger Avon, Reginald Marsh and Richard Statman. Between Harold and Roger we can just see Ian Selby in his favourite battered titfer.

                Outside the posh jewellery and fashion show, George Hilsdon is there to chuckle at the mode of transport adopted by Reginald and Maudie. George can be spotted in an earlier scene at this locale, but there he is involved in delivering a very safe safe. The commissionaire is apparently Nicholas Tannar

                Receptionist Sheila Hammond is not too fussy about who she lets in, even though police detective Jefferies (Pat Meehan) is heavily breathing down her neck, and dodgy Michael Ripper and Elwyn Brook-Jones and their even dodgier accents are admitted. They also get past Philip Stewart on the door

                Reginald, Fred and Maudie are all wondering if that's Pauline Chamberlain beside them. Or is it Pamela?

                  Mr. Ward fawns over his models and we can just make out on the right Messrs. Ernest Blythe and Reg Thomason. John Smart is in this scene too

                  • As well as playing Henry Jekyll and Teddy Hide, Bernard Bresslaw gets to play his illustrious great-grandfather too, in both his guises:

                    It's also nice and possibly unique to see onscreen credits for favourites Lola Morice, Jack Armstrong, Alicia St. Leger and Aileen Lewis as some of the Old Time Dancers.

Gerry Judge has previously been sighted as a waiter there

                        And although not a British film, from the only scene apparently filmed in Britain for Der Hexer (1964), one in the obsessive German series of Edgar Wallace adaptations, the newspaper seller with Eddi Arent is John Abineri, although in film lists this uncredited role is given to the Belgian actor Gerd Martienzen. Well, to seek to further justify this inclusion, I suppose John often played Germans and the two stars of the films, Joachim Fuchsberger and Heinz Drache, are the respective German romantic leads of The Face of Fu Manchu (1965) and The Brides of Fu Manchu (1966).

                        • The preserved print of Forever England (1935) has not preserved the cast or credit list forever, and only the top four actors (Betty Balfour, John Mills, Barry Mackay and Jimmy Hanley) still have their names on screen for posterity or in Jimmy's case, for posterior. So in addition to those listed on IMDb, but under deduction of George Merritt and Cyril Smith because they don't appear:

                          Barry still manages to have last tender and romantic words with Betty (we overlook he has just got her in the family way) as Felix's "man" Fortescue, played by Gibb McLaughlan, disembarks

                          • "The War of the Mascots" is a weakly scripted and badly staged episode of DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE - the studio sequences look more like a dress rehearsal instead of the real thing - but at least Kathleen Heath gets a screen credit and lines as a frosty-faced matron and we also get to see:
