    A few new sightings

    Le Cercle Patrons - Alicia Armstrong, John Smart, David Storm, Juba Kennerley, John Preston, Arthur Goodman, Graham Tonbridge, Bunny Seaman, Colin McKenzie, Jack Arrow, Jack Armstrong, Pearl Walters, UF37, UM25, UM30, UM46, UM56, UM70, UM92
    Le Cercle Waiter - Robert Vossler
    Le Cercle Croupier (Table on the Right) - John Sefton
    Superintendant taking Miss Taro away - Bob E Raymond
    Decontamination Worker - Arnold Lee

    I think the reactor operator may be the elusive Frank Howard but not certain

    IMDb has George Hilsdon as a Le Cercle Patron, i didn't see him, did anyone else?
    Thanks Philly, a couple new names there. Any idea who the John Merivale-like agent collecting Bond at Le Cercle is?

    George Hilsdon is my fault, a false sighting--it's actually Arthur Goodman.

      Thanks! Wasn't sure as he's relatively young there. Would this be the earliest sighting for him now?

          I think it is, Dave. He's also been spotted in another 1930 film Birds of Prey, but Juno seems to have been released first.

          • There are very substantial earlier sightings by Dave from The Iron Petticoat (1956), so there's not a vast number I can add, but glad I did find some after having sat through the blinking thing:

ID:	5722 A huge long sequence at the Russian Bear is hardly bearable: indeed, Alan gives up the ghost and wisely renders himself unconscious by the end of it. Here he, Alexander Gauge and Paul Carpenter consider if they have to listen to all Bob's tired one liners while waiter Dervis Ward wonders if he can serve the other tables instead and in the background, it looks like George Holdcroft is nevertheless quite amused

                • Wow, I missed quite a few familiar faces in this one! In my somewhat weak defence, I did this before we knew some of these guys by name. In my somewhat stronger defence, i was distracted by the sheer badness of this film.
