    • The Brain (1962)

      High flying but much hated businessman Max Holt is high flying in his private jet, it encounters difficulties and crashes. Max is the only survivor, he is rescued by Dr. Peter Corrie (Peter Van Eyck), a scientist specialising in brain function, Max does not last long and Dr Corrie suggests removing his brain, his colleague former surgeon Dr.. Frank Shears (Bernard Lee) reluctantly perfprms the procedure. The brain thrives and has telepathic powers, it sometimes takes control of Dr Corrie, it seems Max was murdered and he makes Peter write out a list os suspects including his son (Jeremy Spensor), his daughter (Anne Heywood), his solicitor Stevenson (Cecil Parker), his business associate (Seigfreid Lowitz) and his former mistress and secretary Marion Fane (Maxine Audley). The events lead to the plot being uncovered and ultimately Anna being installed as the Chaiman of the board.

      The copy i watched was an Italian DVD, the print was the German copy with Dietor Borsch playing Dr Miller instead of Miles Malleson, the mainly English soundtrack kept reverting to German at tomes making the plot a little difficult to follow.
      George A Cooper, Ann Sears and Irene Richmond are uncredited on this print, it seems they are likely credited on the English one.
      The recently deceased Victor Platt (January age 97) plays an airline passenger and is on screen for about two seconds, i suspect a scene as has been deleted.

      Policemen - John Adams, Jack Silk, George Curtis, arthur Howell, UM64
      Night Club Patrons - Robert Vossler, Manny Michael, UF23, UF41, UM 71,UM123
      Commisionaire - Fred Peck
      Detectives - Jack Armstrong, Joe Phelps

        I have the British print, philly, and George A. Cooper, Ann Sears and Irene Richmond are indeed credited. I'll need to check it out for cast differences as, for example, I have Wolfe Morris down as a chemist.

The cast and credit details for this film seem to be quite mixed up and most records show Bessie played by "Peggy Anne", though IMDb hedges its bets and gives us "Peggy Anne: Bessie" and "Peggy Ann Clifford: Bessie (uncredited)"

In this picture we see Tony Quinn, Maire O'Neill, Kieron, Sheila Manahan, Noel and sundry others (the miserable Canon serving out the badgering is Michael Dolan), but also Edward Byrne second row right and Eddie Byrne third row second left, upon whom IMDb has sinned and combined into one person.

                    • I have watched a few Irish made films in the last few months, i did not expect to find any uncredited actors bur suprisingly i did.

                      Hilton Edwards as a grumpy man leaving ship

                      Playboy of the Western World (1962)
                      Steve Donahue as a boxer, later seen in the pub

                      The Devil's Agent (1962)
                      Norman Rodway as Hungarian watchtower gunner

Heller plays the advertised Eastern European designer Peppi Gilroudian and Bill Nagy exotic Italian wine merchant Mario Oromonda, both with elaborate curious accents. The exasperated hotel detective behind them is Leslie Dwyer, with his usual cor-blimey accent.

                                A few new sightings
