    • Almost entirely filmed on the Isle of the Wight, That'll be the Day (1973) has a big roll of extras but sadly yields no familiar faces, except possibly here:

      It looks like it could be Alan Viccars (Meacham) as a fairground stallholder as David Essex shows his true colours as a fair weather friend.

      • Man About Men (1954) is the probably unnecessary sequel to Miranda (1948) as most of the mermaid jokes had been used in that, but at least we can get mad about the uncredited cast:

        At a school sports day, Judith Furse is unlikely to be pulled into the pool by Glynis Johns, but there's the real Richard Gregory managing to appear behind Judith and the spectators include Richard Nellor towards the left. It's his turn to do the "two places at once" trick as he's also sitting elsewhere in the immediately preceding and succeeding shots. Schoolgirls present will likely include Jane White, Wendy Adams and Sandra Walden

        Glynis had legs in the first image, but here she's a bit fishy as gracious Roy Everson carries her out of his clothes shop. He gets a line to whisper too.

          Nicholas Phipps takes over from Margaret Rutherford to bump Glynis up onto the pavement. Cecil Paul on the right is less polite. Anne Crawford, in the yellow dress, is Nicholas's fiancée and she is even less polite

                Jack Armstrong (again) just manages to get into shot, but there's Mabel Etherington and Cecil Paul (again) as well as Deryck Guyler in the box. Still heading for his seat is Pat Ryan

                          Another "(scenes deleted)" listing on IMDb is for Ernest Thesiger as "Bloomfield", but I think Ernest does still manage to peep into shot here. There's likely a longer sequence involving him, Arnold and Guy that hit the cutting room floor.

                            The chips are down when Eric Pohlmann's search group don't find the lost daughter, despite having Manny Michael and Johnny Rossi helping out. Gerard Heinz looks pretty helpless too.

                            Second-billed Robert Beatty is credited on screen and elsewhere as playing "Campbell Reid", whereas he's called "Duncan Reid" countless times throughout the film.

                              But it's certainly Aidan Harrington doing it in the middle here.

                              • Good morning, Gerald. It's taken me eight years but I have finally identified the actress you mistook
                                for Gretchen Franklin in The Great St. Trinian's Train Robbery (filmed in 1965). She's Ursula Hirst:

                                With the somehow better known John Tatum,. Both have non-speaking roles on this occasion.


                                She was in the Armchair Theatre play I watched earlier, Red Riding Hood (1973):

                                In real time, Ursula is very similar to Kathleen Harrison, Surprised I failed to recognise her from
                                the recurring role she played in the following year's Melissa - which is my favourite mini-series.


                                Movie Dude, I think she's Unnamed Extra 19 in Please Turn Over (1959):
