  • Whoever he might be, it looks like he and his chum on the right could do with the attention of the dentist who fixed up the boy in front.

    • It's The Good Life for Richard Briers, a semi decapitated Felicity Kendal and a fully headless Penelope Keith as they meet in the local Surbiton boozer, in the episode Backs To The Wall from 1975.
      Behind them is Ernest Blythe unidentified 138-197550516 from the Aveleyman page on the episode.

            • Welcome Dave. Meanwhile here's another of our old friends Reg Thomason, proving that at nearly 80 years old, he can still party in Mrs Dalloway from 1997.

                • It was a miracle in Pinewood that they got the street in Miracle in Soho (1957) in such detail on one of their soundstages:

                  As the film opens, so does a door into the street and immediately Paul Beradi and milkman Graham Tonbridge come into view, with Cyril Cusack as the postie. Both Paul and Graham turn up again; in fact, Graham re-appears several times, sometimes doing that "two places at once" trick

                  The catalyst for the miracle, if not the catechism, is the arrival of some road-mending workies, who include here Chris Adcock and Ernie Rice (playing Ernie, the slowest workman in the west). George A. Cooper is the balding foreman

                  Jack Sharp is also a leaner of the shovel. He and John Cairney are captivated by the arrival of Anthony Sagar who has something to say and do to Michael Collins

                    The bromide must be wearing off as these elderly gents eye up Billie Whitelaw. Wallace Bosco is another one who gets several appearances in the film. His Farmer Giles companion looks rather like Harold Scott

                        Belinda Lee is going to consult St. Anthony, while the congregation sings the same hymn but in different languages. Graham Tonbridge and Paul Beradi are back, joined by Ned Hood, Billy John and Johnny Rossi, as well as Belinda's parents Peter Illing and Marie Burke. Between shots, a miracle does occur as they swap seats without anyone noticing

                          And we see Fred Stroud is unaware as we find out that it was John Gregson who gave guidance to the makers of the BATMAN TV series for the design of the title sequence.

                              The fellow that looks like Harold Scott is my "Piccadilly weeper man" (http://aveleyman.com/ActorCredit.aspx?ActorID=148982) with his big sideburns. I see him pop up a lot in the Fifties into 1960, and his sideburns got bigger and bushier as the years went on.
