    It's The King & Queen where she lands up and the extras who congregate there with an eye for her include Len Llewellyn. Peter Evans (in colour) is in this scene too

    Norman Bird is the landlord, Anne Cunningham his barmaid and the lecher is Eddie Boyce. Also at the bar is Allan Cuthbertson, but he only has eyes for Anne. Who has eyes for someone else

    It's not Harold Coyne, who only has eyes for his baby at Paddington Station, but Harold does appear in the pub in a later scene.

      Outside, the idea is also chucked out as Reg Thomason (and an almost unseen Jimmy Charters) leave before they are too.

                      While the lads looked concerned, Peter is far more relaxed, as no doubt director Roy Boulting would have confirmed (). Scurrying around the background appears to be the bald dome of Peter Diamond

                      Trying not to look concerned at Hitler's latest plans are some of his top brass, who include George Holdcroft, John Doye and Ron Gregory. And is that John Boulting sitting far right in front of Ron?

                      The chaps (minus the suggested Boulting) demonstrate their lavatory door with broken lock holding techniques and now in view appear to be Simon Cadell and Michael Beint.

                            Dubbing Editor Colin Miller was kept busy on this film as many characters don't have their own voices including, it seems, Timothy West. Peter Sellers gets an extra role as the voice of a radio announcer in an early scene.
