    Through the crowd, it seems to be Dan Cressy with hair and a couple of lines as the mechanic charged with repairing John McCallum's motor. Not surprisingly, John's now more charged in getting into gear with Honor Blackman

      "Ginger!" says the bloke in the middle. "Who is?" replies Charles Rayford behind him. She is: played by Margaret Avery/Maggie Hanley

      When it's the final race, it's John who gets a hug from Diana instead of from Honor. Looking on from the left side of the crowd, three in, is a dark-haired Harold Coyne.

      • Great Caps Gerald!

        In the crowd for West 11, Bob E Raymond, Eric Henderson, Lee Fenton, Ron Watkins and Paddy Hayes
        In A Boy, a Girl and a Bike, Chris Adcock on the right of the Policeman in the Harold Coyne cap, Ted Willis told me that he played a cyclist in this.

          Many thanks for that, philly, much appreciated.

            Hoping the identity of the postman isn't a great mystery, because he looks very like an older Richard Gregory.

                Yes, very sadly indeed it does appear to be the cherished Pat Gorman, man of a thousand credits, who died I think in October last year. He was about the first extra/small part actor I started to notice and he was regularly in DOCTOR WHO for 21 years from 1964. I encountered him once on a tube train, but he was not a Yeti!

                • What a great list of credits he has from a lot of Dr Who to Fawlty Towers and Batman. RIP.

                      When he gets to court, his cockiness still turns to panic, especially as the judges are George Ballantine, the credited Peter Madden and Fred Davis. Bob and Pat are also in this scene as courtroom spectators. And in presumably an unique quirk of French Law, when a crowd turns up to enforce mob justice, Fred is one of their number!

Even Euryale has joined in with the off topic discussions! The forum's best days are long gone but I still hope we can create interest with specialist subjects like this.
