    • I know we've done it a few times before, but Tigon Man's inspiration to watch The Big Job (1965) again reveals a few I think we may have missed:

              • Private Potter (1962) is a film version of Ronald Harwood's play set during the late 50's Cyprus Emergency, Private Potter (Tom Courteney) screams as a group of British soldiers sneak up on some Cypriot insurgents alerting them, this leads to the death of one of the group. Potter is set for court martial but he declares 'He saw God' , there is a battle between padre (Ralph Michael) and the psychiatrist (John Graham). Eventually Potter admits he lied and is due to be sent for his fate with the Court Martial but confides with his commanding officer (James Maxwell) that he did actually see God and he will spend his time in prison happily reflecting.
                Not many recognisable uncredited faces here.
                Fulton Mackay is listed as 'Soldier' at IMDb he is more significently the Sergeant in charge of the ambulance

                Sergeant Major - Eddie Boyce
                Army Ambulance Driver - Peter Ellis
                Soldier - Brian Rawlinson

                • Man Accused (1959) is a better than average Danziger quickie. At Carol Marsh's engagement party,


                  Aileen Lewis offers her sincere congratulations. I think this is the first time I've heard her speak. Indeed, she has a regal, duchess-like, voice. Guy Standeven, George Holdcroft and Ken Hutchins are also at the party.


                  When Ronald Howard becomes the title character and the call goes out, P.C. Arthur Howell gets a nice closeup. It looks like one of the Silks bringing in Howard for questioning in the next scene, but my copy isn't good enough to be certain.

                  For those playing along, the IMDb unattributed roles are: Diana Chesney as an annoying party guest (Mrs. Price), Kenneth Edwards as Hawkins the butler, Howard Lang as a Detective Sergeant, Gordon Needham as a PC, and Graham Ashley as an incredibly observant jail warder. They are listed in the end credits, though.

                  Apologies if this has already been mentioned before; I checked the old pages, but didn't see this one.

ID:	6571 And what a charming crew Peter and Tony have to face with the news that Rank has assigned to them to the next Norman Wisdom film: George Woodbridge, Sam Kydd, Jack Sharp (who also has a great bit of business to do in the tavern fight scene), Patrick McGoohan, Bryan Forbes and Glyn Houston.

                          • Extras as extra planters, though not playing The Planter's Wife: that's Claudette Colbert (as Liz Frazer!) in 1952:

ID:	6595 But a dusky Jack Arrow is there and it looks like Jim Brady is sneaking in on the right again. Bill Travers is also there . . . playing Bill. The planter in the centre background looks a bit like Frederick Treves in this shot, but it's not him. And thankfully, the bloke in glasses isn't Arthur Askey!

                            • Gerald, i think the bloke in the glasses is the earliest sighting yet of David Storm.

                              • Didn't want to start a new thread, but found this little news snippet in the Rugby Advertiser, 09 November 1948, and thought it was worth sharing:

                                "In 1924, fourteen-year old Louis Matto joined the staff of waiters at the Savoy Hotel in London, and since then, he has 'waited' at most of the leading London hotels. He decided to try film work and appeared as a crowd artist for many years. It was inevitable that Louis would act in films as a waiter, and as such he has played in over 200 productions. Altogether he has made over 300 film appearances, but for the past eight years he has been in charge of all crowd artists at studios for the Film Casting Association. His responsibility is to interpret the film director's need to crowd artists, and his hard work and organizing ability are behind many natural crowd scenes.

                                The technical term for Louis Matto is 'crowd marshaling' and ,though he still occasionally appears in films himself, this is his primary occupation. He is a familiar character at Shepherd's Bush, where he is again marshaling the crowd for scenes in A Boy, A Girl, and a Bike."

                                  Fascinating stuff about Louis, Dave. Over 300 appearances by 1948, so we've still got a lot to find!!
