    Kitty's mug, er, love interest, is Ferdy Mayne (credited as "Ferdi Mayer") who plays Pedro Quintos, here with the object of his desire and his father played by Anthony Holles

      I surmise that the performer credited only as 'Freddie' is Hakim the excitable shop owner. IMdb conflates Freddie's name as "Freddie William Breach" with that of William Breach . . .

      The American sailor who is understandbly bemused by OMR's explanation about her family tree seems to be Paul Erickson, later a writer who I met in 1980s.

        The pair jumping for joy at being in an Old Mother Riley film I guess are Rosarito and Paula.

                  I am wondering if the person at the back far right of the attaches is not Fred Wood. If it is it would be his earliest sighting (at the age of 21)

                          Terry is so engrossed in Joyce (or rather, her expectations of an inheritance), he doesn't see Johnny Rossi rising to the occasion in the background.

                            Aileen Lewis makes her appearance beside a returning Philip Johns and, ignoring Dame Lionel Jeffries, Terry Sartain is in the right background. He can earlier be seen wearing the same gear as a diner in a Florence restaurant. He may also be in Lionel's Ancient Rome dream sequence, but it's difficult to make him out for sartain, er, certain.
