    Hi Allen,

    The bidder is Bill Reimbold. He also appears as a US Army general at Damien's party in the beginning of the original Omen. Reimbold (1926-2014) was an American who came to Britain in the 50s and married a British citizen. Lots of small appearances in films from the 70s to the 90s, most notably as the bureaucrat watching Indiana Jones sign over the Ark of the Covenant to the government at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
    Nice info, Dave.

    • Another stare at The Brides of Fu Manchu (1966) and:

      Among the previously-sighted John Tatum, Michael Dempsey, Victor Harrington and Pat Judge, joining the departing Tsai Chin at the Lyric Theatre are Lee Fenton, James Ure, Anthony Snell and Eric Wetherell. Any more?

      To fill the seats within the various shots, they all move around a bit and Eric's back again behind Chris Webb, who's now got Michael sitting next to him

      Correcting an previous mis-sighting, it's Sonnie Willis as the new reception at St. Edmund's Hospital (Ken Parry having been dispatched a couple of reels earlier). Maureen Beck appears gleeful about that.

        A nice little group of arriving passengers ignored by Rupert Davies comprises Tony O'Leary, Cyril Kent, who we think may be Freddie Summers and coming up from behind, lugging a heavy suitcase, Daniel Brown

        Kenneth Fortescue's looking a bit puzzled, but he's pretty certain that's Gordon Humphries too.

          The chase is on! And as the camera gets close to this car, the dacoit driver turns not into a side road but into Jeff Silk

          Aren't the police wonderful! And Kenneth's off to find out why P.C. Bill Rooney is oblivious to the riot.

          • There appears to have been some doubt if he was in this film given the role he plays is basically an extra, and it's never mentioned in his autobiographies:

            But this is clearly Nicholas Courtney as a Foreign Legion Sergeant during the rescue of the Brides from Fu Manchu. However, the pressbook includes him in the cast list (as well as Desmond Gill as "Warder"), so perhaps Nick originally did have a bigger role and it was snipped out by the editor.

            • By the time Harry Alan Towers gets us to The Vengeance of Fu Manchu (1967), we're away from UK shores for good, but in Dublin:

              Courtesy of the always-informative Jonathan Rigby during the excellent commentary given by him and Kevin Lyons on the cracking new bluray release of the film, the head of the Sûreté on the left here is played by the uncredited John Franklyn.

              Sadly the DVD release is seriously cropped, so I can't provide you with an image to show that one of the jurors at Nayland Smith's trial appears to be Jack Arrow.

                  Terry Walsh as a guard on the receiving end of Oliver Tobias's uppercut during his Arabian Adventure (1979).

                  Terry was in loads of DOCTOR WHO episodes, but so was/is the hired tall brass stand about to be knocked for six during a flying carpet arrival:

                        • I'm not sure if there's been coverage of On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), so if not, and taking advantage of the inevitable casino scene:

                          New Bond George Lazenby spots Lola Morice in her trademark fur and possibly, in the foreground Ned Lynch in his trademark silver locks

                          No doubt infuriated that she's not the new Bond girl, Aileen Lewis regally sweeps by. She has a thing for small men as he's accompanied this time by Arthur Goodman

                          But ah yes, Lewis Alexander is there too, but not with missus. The dealer is Martin Leyden and Robert Rietty has a watchful eye over the proceedings. The inevitable Lenny Rabin on the right.

                            George and Diana aim for the caviar and champagne. Ron Gregory already has his on the left, probably served by waiter Andrew Andreas.
