    This is a Herbert Lom film, so no real surprise to see Emil Stemmler, though surprising to see him shake his booty. Rita's got more to shake.

      He heads quickly out, not even stopping at the bar to have a reviver served up by Louis Matto. Obviously his fire down below has already been quenched.

      For Horsey-Face admirers, he can be spotted in a barber shop scene as Mr. Mitchum listens to Mozart and gets drunk. Not an unreasonable pastime. However, if you're looking for the credited Maurice Kaufmann as "3rd U.S. Sailor", I think you might be struggling.

        • "I'll get you for this" promised director Joseph M. Newman and so he did for I'll Get You For This (1950). Among those he got, but didn't bother to credit:

          George gets back into his old tango routine with Coleen and it's the turn of Ernest Blythe on the right to look impatient, his baldness beaming, even though it looks like he's on a night out with Nora Batty. The gentleman on the left just looks rather like John Bailey

            Charles Goldner points to where Lucky Nick Cain has secreted his rug as George grits his teeth, or dentures, and Steve Donahue makes sure the camera catches his fine mane.

            IMDb includes Norman Shelley and Margot Grahame in their lists as Mr. and Mrs. Langley, but I didn't spot them.
