    When the arrival of the constabulary is imminent, bookie Charlie Ward suddenly becomes religious painter Reg Thomason and Joseph Tregonino serves tea rather than chips. We don't get to see any more of the gentleman on left, but the eyebrows and hair certainly belong to Jack Armstrong

          George Spence in the audience to watch The Good Companions in 1933. A fight breaks out and although he's in the balcony, George gets stuck into Finlay Currie down in the stalls for adopting that crummy American accent again.

          • There's a long list of the "uncredited and unattributed" who are Sailing Along with Jessie Matthews in 1938, but I think I can only make out a few of them:

            This apparently is (a dozing?) Bruce Winston, tasked with dressing Jessie to the nines at Yvette et Cie. Bruce could well be playing Yvette

            At auditions for Jessie's big show, as well as Jack Whiting and Noel Madison (in a friendly role for once), the man tasked with producing the one and nines is Arthur Denton.

              And not quite the expected George Spence, but instead an early appearance of Robin Burns as Rem (Charles Laughton) is taken up for getting naughty with the country lasses

              • People who are blind is the theme of Ballad in Blue (1964) and ironically, I can't provide screencaps of it, but although the film was mainly made in Ireland, nudging in appearances are Tony Castleton as an exiting bus passenger and Martin Lyder as a dodgy dodgem car driver.

                • Like Gerald, no screencaps for Yesterday's Hero (1979) but accompanying singing sensation Clint Simon (Paul Nicholas) to his seat at Wembley Stadium, is minder Maxwell Craig.

                    Leering men at bus stop Lindsay Hooper and Norman Mitchell. I'm not sure if that's Madge Ryan next to them. She and Norman get lines, but he is dubbed, but at least gets the character name of Henry

                    But even more importantly, he has to look convincingly casual, ahem, buying cigarettes, as Father John Gregson and William Peacock/Dexter march by.

Old pro Johnny Rossi drops not a cinder from his cigarette or a drop from his drink as he stands close by. The inevitable pub has the already-sighted inevitable Jim Brady in it, plus Harry Phipps who can even wear a flat cap at a jaunty angle

                            Poor old, er, I mean 23 year old, Van ends up in a police car accompanied by Michael Collins and driven by Johnny Wyne who gets to talk too. In the previous scene, there's another P.C. with Michael who looks more like Joe Wadham than Johnny, but I don't think it's either of them.

                                Peter Brace (Man chasing Harry Fabian)
                                Charles Rayford (Man at Wrestling Match)

                                and possibly, Jimmy Charters (Bagrag's Barman).
