    As Richard Hearne engages in a wrestling match with his clock and other accoutrements at Shepperton Railway Station, I think he's passed by Alicia St. Leger

        Made up from three shorts from the series Colonel March of Scotland Yard, Hot Money, Death in the Dressing Room and The New Invisible Man.
        Frank Littlewood has three roles, one in each section, i suspect that he was Boris Karloff's stand-in.

        No sign of Dora Bryan or Dorothy Bromiley, they are both historic credits though, i suspect a deleted scene

        Only the Kitchen Hand, Mr Finch's Secretary and three Army Diner's (UM's 67, 104 and 195) to identify for a full house. Janet Munro's stand-in was Anna Cameron, a possibility for the secretary i guess.


        • I think at least some of the images of Movie Dude's UM10 (e.g. from Kind Hearts and Coronets, Geordie, Above Us the Waves and One Good Turn - more pointed nose, minus a cleft chin) could be this gentleman:

          John Withers, who plays the credited role of Sandy in Nor the Moon by Night (1958).

          No other sightings from the film, but a listening: Tim Turner provides the brief narration at the film's start.

            Why "the dreaded IMDb"? Why "dreaded"? If you have any definite information then it can be added to "the dreaded IMDb" by you.
            The dreaded IMDb is much more trustworthy than Wikileaks/Wikipedia (IMHO)

            Fred Griffiths and Brian Nissen are already listed on the dreaded IMDb



            • Passionate Stranger (1957)

              No sign of Diane Cilento.
              Michael Shepley and Andree Melly are historic credits so their scenes must have been deleted.
              Fred Tooze was a supporting actor of the day, an FAA member, he is supposed to be playing 'Amos', nobody is referred to by that name, he maybe is the Railway Porter who looks quite oldish, There Could be a deleted scene with Pat Ryan playing a 'Guard' and Fred playing 'Amos', pure speculation though.

              Recital Attendee - Joyce Everson
              Fairgoer - Joyce Everson (again), Lee Fenton, Ernest Fennemore, Nan Kearns, Fred Stroud
              Pub Patron - Terry Sartain, Bunny Seaman

              Hide and Seek (1964)

              Could Michael Segal be the train guard in longshot?

              Scientist - Norman Morris, Ernst Walder
              Chess Tournament Spectator - Eric Wetherell, Jimmy Scott, Fletcher Lightfoot, Ernest Blyth, Bill Raymond
              Chess Player - Guy Mills, Dan Lester
              Major MacPherson's Secretary - Esme Smythe
              Men from the Ministry - Dan Darnelli, Billy John

              This was probably Guy Mills last film, his performance was released posthumously, having died in 1963

                When there's excitement at the Gibraltar airport, also those getting excited are Bill Baskiville and Ken Hutchins. The film dots back and forth to England and Ken's in several of those scenes too.

                                And in this close-up of a photographer near the end of the film, I'm pretty sure it's Jack Carter. The next shot of the photographer with the principals on location, presumably in Australia, is another actor altogether.
