                    On the left in both of these pictures, it looks like a superannuated Ronald Gough.

                      Reg Cramfield right I think, bottom#1974;
                      Putting back the clocks I spied IAN WILSON, man in train corridor ROME EXPRESS(1932),a v. early credit for Ian...

                  • I will have a look for Ian, John: how far into the film is his appearance? He and Arthur Mullard and a few others have quite a few "phantom" credits on IMDb, so it'd be nice to find another "real" one.

                      Ian I think in the first reel,you've got to be quick to spot him,standing on his own in train corridor...saw it a while back on TPTV;.I see,according to Scott (Palmer) he was in movies from 1922!
                      Special Branch is due for a rerun on TPTV; lots of walkons to document, I did a few back in 1969,the Nesbitt series that is, made my acquaintance with Alan Harris on that one

                        2 Screen shots of Fred Wood who is shown a number of times in the chase sequence at the end of this film.
                        I am not sure but I thought the 3rd shot might have been Anthony Lang but now I am not sosure but we have seen his face before
