  • Why Cornershop do you think the sites best days are gone? It’s pretty much the same site as it always has been. Why does it matter if Eurydale or anyone else for that matter posts on off topic discussions? That’s there perogative. The only shame is that the likes of Scott Palmer and my old pal Moviedude don’t post anymore. I like this site for the Extra’s section and that’s still the same.

      Yesterday's activity at Britmovie was dominated by off topic discussion posts, by the usual suspects, and it's started that way today. They'd rather discuss what's going on in the world (not that anything can be done about it from here) than show interest in what film enthusiasts have to offer. Identified extras and locations, for example.

      True, it's none of our business if they want to argue - or agree - with each other but when we're asked to donate money to keep the forum going, I feel I should protest that it's being ruined by a minority that includes one member who acknowedges that everyone has contempt for his views, quits the thread/forum and yet repeatedly comes back for more abuse.

      Regarding those who haven't posted for a long time, I've noticed Phil, Rick C and darrenburnfan seem to have disappeared.

  • Bless Me Father - The Doomsday Chair (1978) - Part 1

    I've identified a number of extras since screencapping this episode
    in 2014. Even Maureen Nelson was an unfamiliar face at the time:



    With Peter Bowles and Arthur Lowe. I think that might be the blond-haired David Billa behind her


    Top right are Derek Parkes and Joan Harsant (recognisable from Public Eye). Ron Gregory below?:



    I suspect the animated Irishman is Patrick Ryan.


    The old man beside curate Daniel Abineri is Jimmy Mac, another Public Eye veteran:



    Any other identifications? You can watch the episode on YouTube:

      I think the blonde woman is Maureen Nelson ?

      Hi there. If you mean the third screencap (directly above), that's 'barmaid' Christina Halstead. The well-established Maureen Nelson is behind Peter Bowles in the first image.

  • Well I would NEVER donate to ANY website to keep it going when you can enjoy it for free. If it disappears so be it. This site isn’t my life after all. As for other posts I simply don’t read them. I like the Extra’s stuff only. Occasionally I read the odd obituary’s but that’s it.

    Anyway, Im watching Superman 3. The opening scene on the streets of Metropolis looks like the States but would Richard Lester be allowed to fly the likes of Graham Stark, Gordon Rollings, Henry Woolf and Bob Todd to America for such tiny parts? He could have used American actors. Of course it could be just the magic of the movies editing wise.

    • I love Britmovie. I've been a member of the forum for 9 years and love to read Gerald's wonderful reviews or action some credits for the Extra's on Imdb.
      The site is what you make of it. I read most of it, but can appreciate that some threads, don't interest everyone.
      Personally logging on to Britmovie has helped me through some pretty lean times over the last few years. At times when there was wasn't much to look forward to, I could always log on and find something of interest and still do.
      More power to it's elbow.

        • I think we should start a second 'Extras in Public Eye' thread, Gerald, as these identifications will soon be lost and forgotten here:


          Bless Me Father - The Doomsday Chair - Part 2

          A closer view of some of the people in the second capture of Part 1. I was wrong about Ron Gregory
          (the man sitting down) but am positive that's Annet Peters behind Derek Parkes (yellow waistcoat):



          I thought the unfortunately cropped woman on the right might be Ursula Glanville but she's not in IMDb's list.


          No mistaking Garth Watkins though. Like Jimmy Mac earlier, he's stood next to Daniel Abineri and Arthur Lowe:



          The landlady on the right is Phyllis MacMahon, who played a murder victim in 10 Rillington Place.

            Yes, cornershop, I think that is a good idea.

              Gerald, apart from 'Nobody Kills Santa Claus', I never got round to screencapping the surviving ABC episodes so these will be excellent additions to the new 'Public Eye' thread, which I will create in a moment. Thanks very much. And well done with Billy John, Ann Barrass and others who aren't named in the book's uncredited cast lists. I expect your help will be needed with many more identifications.

              Sylvia Kay was great in 'The Bromsgrove Venus' you highlighted on the previous page. A recent and very sad loss.

                    What Lola did next was end up in the path lab where the sheets are operated by Keith Ashley and the operation is operated by Robert Hartley. That's Mr. Woodvine leaving before his lunch does.

                      And the gentleman in the spotlight is Terence Soall and he needs three coppers, including Ronald and Cy Town, to keep an eye on him. The backside on the right we'd rather not keep on eye on is attached to Godfrey Jackman.

                          Sam Kydd is on the IMDb uncredited list as a railway inspector, but there's no sign of him - possibly the only 50s film Sam wasn't in and another phantom credit?
