    Finally, the hospital extrudes Frank Draycott (Dreycott?). Frank is quite a star of this film as he appears almost as often as the GPO Tower. He's in a couple of park scenes and a couple of café scenes as well as this.

      But earlier at the station, I have a feeling that the encounter with a blurry traveller on the right is with Leslie Adams.

        And while Ian Bannen may ponder it, I'm sure those grumpy ears and that miserable back of head belong to John Tatum.

          He has certainly been: Edward Malin as reflected lavatory attendant for the surely be-rugged Herr Jurgens.

          • A sighting of Reg Thomason as the Forbidden Area Guard is all I could originally eke out of Captain Nemo and the Underwater City (1969), but that was a few years ago and we've all swallowed a lot of water since then. Reg, incidentally, gets a line or two and he doesn't sound dubbed, but joining Reg in the deep:

            A dandier guard in the control room is Aidan Harrington, again with lines. Nanette Newman delivers her sweetly, Chuck Connors stonily and Luciana Paluzzi with some else's voice (possibly John Turner's wife Barbara Jefford)

            This crowd feel it too (Allan Cuthbertson is fiddling with the central heating). Sitting down appears to be Hyma Beckley with Tony Castleton in front of him. Tony pitches up a couple of more times wearing different clothes on each occasion.

              Robert Ryan looks worried about playing Captain Nemo, and well he might. Keeping an eye on the proceedings at the left is guard Maxwell Craig.

                Yes, there are some seriously dodgy costume designs by Olga Lehmann and sweet shop set designs by Bill Andrews in this film. Modelling some of the clothes here are Jack Arrow, Gerry Judge and Jim Brady with Tony Castleton popping up again. Jack manages to get above the waves somehow as he's also a sailor on the yacht in the last scene of the film

                John Timberlake in the centre of the smothering set dressing looks pained. Possibly the sailors are Robert Smythe again and Ken Hutchins too.

                  The lad nevertheless grows up to be big, strong and curly Charles Bickford, here bickering with big, fat and balding Francis L. Sullivan. The referee is Hay Petrie.

                        Richard Bird, Harold Warrender, Carol Goodner and in the very tall top hat, Martin Walker. But small in the background, looks like even smaller Cot D'Ordan. No British film of the 1930s set in France could do without him

                        The drama turns to melodrama when Richard consults Doctor Patric Curwen as Puccini's violins go all quivery.

                            Records indicate it's Gaumont-British's resident musical director Louis Levy with the baton, although his appearance doesn't particularly match other images of him. Anyway, Louis is the MD on the production and composed the familiar Gainsborough Pictures signature which opens the film

                            At least the audience is amused and don't forget a convulsed Ian Selby on the front row, still with a decent comb-over at this point.

                            Jean Kent is uncredited, despite what the IMDb says, although she gets the substantial role of Kitty Kane, the Olympian Theatre secretary. The acting class students were from the Italia Conti Drama School.

                                As Dr. Royce Mills gives instructions to numbskulls Robin Nedwell and Barry Evans when there's "A Stitch in Time" for DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE, it appears the porter on the left we're just in time to see is John Doye. Earlier in the scene, there's a nurse who looks rather like Pauline Chamberlain, but sadly, this time it isn't.
