  • I'm afraid they don't look like Dido or Fred to me.

    On a happier note, we come to the last transmitted episode of THE PROTECTORS (hooray) which promises to be a "Blockbuster", and it's anything but. However, we do get to sight:

    George Hilsdon on the right doing a jig of delight also in his constable attire. In an earlier scene outside a police station, he salutes a more senior officer, which is something you don't see nowadays

    And the celebrations come to a head when they decide to duck the director in a vat of slime*. P.C. in the middle is Mike Stevens.

    *actually, it's Maurice O'Connell; director Jeremy Summers had already scarpered.

    • Happy new year to all. Was skimming through 1932's The Midshipmaid, and I think this is Rex Garner in the background behind Jessie Matthews and Basil Sydney. If so, must be the earliest sighting for him so far!

      • A very belated Happy New Year, Dave (the 11th of January already).

        I've got to know Susan Whitman quite well from her appearances in Mrs. Thursday the last
        couple of months and can confidently state she is Unnamed Extra 15 in A Hard Day's Night:




        And Happy New Year Gerald, finally. My attempted e-mail replies have not gone at all well, what with lengthy drafts disappearing - probably while clearing history because of failed Google searches - and regular struggles with 'writer's block'. I shall have to start afresh and try not to go off on tangents, like I'm doing here.

        I also intend to "start" afresh with the ITC Robin Hood next week. After about 40 episodes, my interest waned last time because they were becoming increasingly forgettable. 144 half-hour shows are, again, going to be really difficult to memorise but I will give it a try. I've already started watching William Tell for a second time and think I have some good news for you.

        In your very first post at the original 'Sighted' thread, dear old Hilda Barry was the only identification from the opening episode of William Tell. We didn't know as many extras then so Ted Carroll (2) and Fred Haggery, if it's him at around 19 minutes, will be new additions - unless you've returned to the series since your 2010 screencapping of the series. Also hoping Catweazle creator Richard Carpenter can be added to the list of uncredited actors in Grand Prix. Surely that's him playing a Reporter in the scene where Brian Bedford comes back from hospital?

        • Imdb have accepted A Day at Denham for Juba. It's years before his first recorded appearance for IMbd, but perhaps because it's him in person and not in character, they are happy with it.

            Belated season's greetings to you too, cornershop! I will look forward to your ROBIN HOOD discoveries and although I haven't embarked upon a full scale re-watching of WILLIAM TELL, I have dipped into it occasionally - I'm not forgetting your comment a few years ago about Victor Harrington being in an episode and I've not found him yet - and yes, Ted (broken) Carroll and Fred Haggerty. Fred's got two roles, as a villager and an Austrian guard, the latter role also being played by Jim Brady. And it's Michael Brennan as the Alpenhorn player.

            • Two films from 1967

              The Dirty Dozen (1967)

              Aveleyman have a comprehensive list of actors who appeared in this without attributions, i have one, Joe Cornelius plays a U.S Soldier (Airborne Division)
              IMDb have an incorrect attribution for German Soldier Wanting a Light, they say it is Alf Joint, it isn't it is Ken Buckle although Alf did participate in this film.

              U.S. Officer - Norman Morris
              French Servent - Jimmy Scott
              Army Priest at Hanging - Larry Cross
              German Officer - Robert Vossler
              German Officer's Wife - Esme Smythe
              German Soldier - Jack Cooper

              Red, White and Zero (1967)

              An anthology film in three parts

              Ride of the Valkyrie
              This instalment directed by Peter Brook ran over 40m originally, it was cut to more than half it's length by Lindsay Anderson, i think many more of our favourites would have turned up here.

              Customs Officer - Les Conrad, Peter Durrent
              Theatre Audience Member - Pearl Walters
              Old Lady with a Pram - Hilda Barry
              People at the Tube Station - Austin Cooper, Don Archell, Hyma Beckley, Anthony Snell, Les Conrad (again)
              Actress on Stage - Kathleen Saintsbury
              Stage Door Keeper - Charles Rayford

              The White Bus is the second instalment directed by Lindsay Anderson, it was filmed in Manchester so the extras are locals, the park painting recreations are acted by Salford residents

              Red and Blue
              Third instalment a musical directed by Tony Richardson

              Jazz Band Drummer - George Curtis
              Gangster - Bill Nagy
              Club Patrons - Gordon Sterne, Basil Dignam, Derek Tansley

              Behind the Scenes of Red and Blue (1966)

              Filmed in 1966 by Kevin Brownlow, first shown on Blu-Ray 2018 with added narration by Cinematograher Billy Williams

              Themselves - Vanessa Redgrave, William Sylvester, Tony Richardson

              - About "The White Bus" (1968)

              Documentary on the making of The White Bus

              Themselves - John Sharp, Julie Perry, John Savident, Fanny Carby, Malcolm Taylor, Allan O'Keefe, Barry Evans, Penny Ryder, Dennis Alaba Peters, Abdul Rahman Rakin, Margaret Barren, Jay Birje-Patil, Cecil H Gibbons, Dolores Judson, Dorothy Judson, Michael Marty, Francis McGrath, Mr. Piatkowski, Bill Pilkington, Charles Sankey, George Stanford, Lilian Redfern, Eric Thornber, Elizabeth Walker, Derek Williams, Mrs Yamamoto, Jill Bennett

              During this film one of the actors playing a bus passenger is referred to as Mrs Piatkowski, i don't know if the credits in the original film made an error calling her Mr. instead of Mrs. or she is an uncredited cast member being the wife of credited Mr Piatkowski.

                • Sadly the print of Intent to Kill (1958) makes the intent to sight more difficult, but I think we can just about make out the "Canadian" bit players:
