  • Great work as usual but what's happened to all the people who used to post? Cornershop and my old pal Moviedude for example. I wonder if something or someone put them off posting on the new site. Ah well, I guess we shall never know.

      Do you have a clause in your will saying that your executor should log in to places like this and tell everyone that you'd died?

      Not many people do. Maybe we all should.

      Or, if they haven't died, maybe they haven't died but just haven't come across to the new site yet. Or maybe they have but they're using a different user name.

      Who can tell?

      • Oh Steve, you are a wag! To clarify though I was talking about the Extra's posts which has very few of the old gang still posting. Yeah there's me, Tigon Man, Gerald Lovall but not many others. I suppose some could have changed their user names, but why?

          It beats me why everybody (or almost everybody) feels the need to hide behind aliases anyway. Are so many people ashamed of their names? Or of what they write here?

          • Very true Steve, In fact if there's an option on the profile settings to change your name then I will
            revert to my real name.

              The lads Paul Phillips and Eden Fox must've fallen out as they're drinking at separate tables. You know there's going to be a knees-up as Rita Webb has arrived with Adrienne Posta who's in danger of falling out of her costume

              The balding chap behind bald Alf doesn't gives us a good look at himself, but I believe it's Leslie Bryant

              And that's Les Conrad at the far end of the bar, too far away for getting a swig out of Adrienne's ill-gotten champers.

              • A night out at the Theatre Royal in 1943:

                And another extra finding the camera is Frederick Kelsey; he and his equally stuffy companion are none too impressed with the jazzy arrangements and breathtaking drum playing by Victor Feldman and his Orchestra.

                None of the credited cast are role attributed, but IMDb is quite wrong in having Charles Mortimer and Jack Melford playing "themselves", as they have the roles of Mr. Bowman and Singer in Flashback respectively (and as also identified as such by the BFI for once).

                  It looks like Muriel Greenslade getting her luggage lost in the background as Constance Cummings faces a belligerent and boozy Donald Pleasence on a train due to head north to Edinburgh (and in a continuity boob, is shown as coming into Waverley Station from the north)

                  When Constance's latest modernisation plans at The House of Macpherson (Established 1789, with a sign on South St. Andrew Street, but an entrance on George Street ) go haywire, boss Robert Morley splutters at Peter Sellers while Alex Mackenzie looks on between them and, further in the background, Jack Hetherington does too

                  When Peter goes to the pictures and gets some nasty inspiration about what to do with Constance, it's the turn of Lindsay Hooper to look on.

ID:	26355 At a dinner with Christopher as the guest speaker, Michael Gough does them all a favour when he causes the pompous talk to be cut short. I'm sure that balding dome next to Mick is that of Hubert Hill. The stern toastmaster is that no. 2 favourite of Amicus, Frank Forsyth.

                          Really Gerald, the great Sir Christopher suffering from toupee slippage, it would never happen. He's not Miles Malleson!

                      • Allegedly, when filming THE FAR PAVILIONS, Sir Christopher insisted on wearing a wig and turban over his toupee and when he unfortunately fell off a horse at one point, turban, wig and toupee fell off too in front of a crowd of extras. Quick exit for Sir C!

                          The lady in the greenish dress in the Richard Nellor cap is Esme Smythe.

                            Thanks, philly. Esme is someone I still have great difficulty in identifying.

                            I would also mention that in the "Creeping Vine" segment of the film, I'm sure the slightly wheezy barking for old Rusty the dog is provided by Percy Edwards, whose sharper dog bark from earlier times can be heard on the soundtrack of countless films, apparently regardless of studio.
