    Hello, John. I think this must be it:

    As for a Jess Conrad/Charlie Price appearance recently on TPTV, at the moment the only one I can think of with them both is The Ugly Duckling, but it doesn't have an Edwardian setting.

      Thanks for tracing it,Gerald,as Philly says it's probably too early for our Maurice....I'll check Moviedude..

  • I believe Maurice Bush was born in 1930, so must be a lookalike.

    • I think we've dipped into Till Death Us Do Part (1969) before pointing out errors in the IMDb role attributions (e.g. Ann Lancaster is Aunt Maud and not as stated) and Movie Dude has certainly covered it, but it seems to be one where repeated viewings reveal further sightings:

      During the opening titles, fascist Bill Ward gives the benefit of his supposed wisdom to some of the inhabitants of the street where the Garnetts live. Ricky Lansing is the dark-haired one in the middle. This scene is set in 1939, but when we get to 1968, Ricky's still there looking the same and with his hair still jet black

      The street I think is a Shepperton backlot creation and getting ready to have Anderson Shelters falling off the back of a lorry are Mickey Varey and Peter Avella. Peter can be seen later on as a resident of the street

      . . . and dodging the manure and the main titles which pop up, but just over the back of the horse is Robin Burns and Jimmy Charters is one of the gents standing outside the pub. Both turn up again, Robin at the victory street party set in 1945 and Jimmy constantly IN the pub 1939-45.

        Possibly playing the wife of next door neighbour Bert played by Bill Maynard, Lola Morice gets to sling an amused line at Alf (Warren Mitchell) in his almost altogether. If Lola is Bert's wife, then according to the television series, she's a prototype Min, on TV played by Patricia Hayes

          In this film, the landlord of the local pub is named Fred and is played by Michael Robbins and not TV regular in the role Will Stampe (who however gets the part back in the sequel film). One of the pub regulars, just over Michael's shoulder, is Cyril Kent

          When there's a knees-up at the 1945 victory street party, it appears to be Bill Rayment baring his best NHS-to-be gnashers. Thumping out on the tunes on his upright is pianist Jack Jordan.

            No sign of Alf, but George Holdcoft is just managing to bob his head up left background and two men away from him to the right is Frank Howard. Ann Barrass is the girl second right. Although George and Ann can later be seen in the chaotic reception scenes, Ann somehow changes her dress and can be spotted again outside the house simultaneously. The photographer is Richard Atherton

            Don't be taken in by Alf's apparent chumminess with Mike's dad Liam Redmond. They're too much alike as cowardly bigots. John Doye tries to press past them.

              Bill Maynard and Alf are shocked to see their street is going to be demolished. Bookending them here are Paul Phillips and Eden Fox. This is the scene where Ricky Lansing unchanged after 30 years reappears

              Sole resident Alf heads home with workman Gerry Judge right behind him. Till Street They Do Smash.

              As a PS, I still couldn't find the credited Madge Brindley, Brenda Kempner or Lesley Noyse (sic), but the last I suspect is a error for Leslie Noyes, sometime small part actor in the TV series and a regular platoon member in DAD'S ARMY and the 1971 film of that.

                  Sid James as an excited Italian nightclub owner has an issue with, I think, Charles Paton as one of his employees. The chorus girls who also get the sack are Jasmine Dee and Barbara Hamilton and dopey Michael Medwin gets the same treatment

                  Dave has already got down Louis Matto as Jack the barman, but in the immediately preceding shot, he's also a waiter at a table at the far end of the room and there's no way he could've got round into the bar (out of shot to the right) to calmly, not excitedly, pour drinks for Michael. The lady swanning in is Thelma Grigg

                  It's all excitement when the cast learn the Hammer budget has just run out and so they run too. Gordon Mulholland is the man in the middle, but the dark-haired nightclub patron standing by the table on the right is Pat Ryan. Pat's in the earlier nightclub scene (photographed at the Hotel de Paris, Bray) too.

                  Sorry for the quality of the images which derived from a VHS copy with wonky tracking.

                      And we uncover Harry Phipps, minus jauntily-angled hat, as one of the POWs. Beside him it's Michael Ripper as a cruel Japanese officer notching up yet another Hammer credit. Inevitably, previously-sighted Fred Woods is around too, and just possibly, Charles Rayford, but the picture quality wasn't good enough to fully make him out.

ID:	67119 Do you know this voice? (1964) is an enjoyable old pot boiler and features John Wilder with a line ‘You’d better answer it sir’ . He’s a policeman tapping a phone. Pat Hagen is a pub customer with no lines but a good close up.
