    I tired watching Dry Rot a few years ago, but the decay got me at the halfway mark . . .

      • Gerald i know you covered 'The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner' recently but it seems to have disappeared between the two sites, i'll just summarise the veterans and add some notes plus UM/F's and recent discoveries.

        Classics - Maurice Bush, Joe Phelps, Fred Machon, Otto Friese, Lola Morice, Robert Vossler, John Wilder, Bunny Seaman, Gertrude Kaye, Harry Van Engel, Eddie Boyce, Del Watson.

        Doug Robinson sounds like he is dubbed by Albert Finney.
        A triumvirate of Greenslade's here all sat to together, Muriel and her two lookalikes UF1 and UF22.
        During the commentary Tom Courteney mentions that director Tony Richardson steps into view to tell him not too smile, although when he viewed the rushes he kept the smile and his own cameo in, it is so obvious when you know but i don't think i would have spotted it otherwise.
        Peter Kriss plays a borstal boy, IMDb and BFI name him as Scott although i don't think he is named during the film, Mr Scott is Ranley Schools sports master played by Roy Everson.

        Cafe Proprietor - UM82
        Police Sergeant - Philip Webb
        Police Constable - Dennis Carnell
        Man in Race Meeting Crowd - John Preston
        Woman in Race Meeting Crowd - Pat Symons

        Gerald did you spot Hubert Hill in the crowd in the same set up
        as John Preston? i nearly missed him, his profile just creeps into frame on the left, the extras in this shot don't
        re-appear again in the film.

        • Great stuff, philly. Although I sighted quite a lot of uncredited cast in The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, I didn't see Hubert Hill, nor for that matter Maurice Bush, Otto Friese, Muriel Greenslade, Philip Webb, Dennis Carnell or John Preston. I think it was you who pointed out Pat Symons to me. Needless to say, I didn't know about Tony Richardson's Hitchcock appearance!

          Another Hubert Hill appearance coming up soon.

          • Maurice Bush was a cafe customer just in front of Jim Brady, Otto was a pub customer just in front of Lola Morice, i had to double check and freeze frame to confirm Hubert, Maurice and Otto they are easy to miss. John Preston is wearing a hat which hides his identifiable hairline.

Edward Judd can be glimpsed in this scene too as another reporter, but he gets a screen credit even though he has far less to say and do than Edwin or Graham. Rubberneck Helen Goss is behind them.
                                And if Philip Friend ever needed a stand-in or double, Victor Harrington would have suited the bill perfectly.
