      To finish off the airport sequence, as Harold Coyne strolls in back into shot, the pushy American passenger and downtrodden porter appear to be producer Herman Cohen and writer/director Jim O'Connolly doing their "Hitchcock" bits (Equity beware: Herman even gets a line)

      At the back, Terry Plummer finally gets into shot. Terry's one of Harry H.'s henchmen later on and in fact he may be in the same role here as there's supposed to be a tail on Warren and Telly at this point.

        These gamblers are out to collect as much money as they can. John Clifford with the cigar and is that Russell Westwood in the shades? Bunny Seaman on the right gets a better appearance shortly after

        Edith soon has everyone around her and I see Frank Draycott, who hasn't been sighted recently, Graham Tonbridge (who appears in a stately home scene much later on as well), Ian Selby and Fred Stroud. Any others?

          And as Telly strides off, the crowds include Lord Longface himself, John Tatum, in half his brown suit, and I suspect the lady with the red hair next to him is Zelda Tatum. Talking of hair, seconds earlier John is either trying to draw attention to himself, or keep a wasp or something out of his as he ducks and waves his hand. Telly has no such problem, of course

          The butler doing it here is Thorley Walters and Jack Carter on the right seems very protective of his luncheon and tea. Sonnie Willis may also be in this scene, but the picture quality is too fuzzy to be certain

            And Harry H.'s henchmen gather for it, including Dave Griffiths (who gets several lines), Eric Kent, Mickey Varey (I think) and Peter Brace. Out of shot is their loud-mouthed shop steward, Arthur Mullard no less

            Onto the job, and not prepared to wait for Edith's Fokker to wipe them out, are Cliff Diggins on the left, Peter at the back and although listings insist it's Nosher Powell on the right, he looks more like Terry Richards to me. I regret the short chap in the middle I don't recognise

            In the aftermath, it's speeches all round and for once, even George Holdcroft gives a beaming smile. The bald patch in the middle I'm sure from the shape of the head belongs to Tony Mendleson

            As Greyfriars House becomes Sophie's Place, one of the patrons in the foreground is Lewis Alexander. With Dame Edith as Sophie, there's probably no room for the Duchess, but as Edith glides by, Lewis is about the only one to whom she nods in acknowledgement.

            • Great caps Gerald, Esme Smyth again on the right in the Terry Plummer cap. Yes Terry Richards not Nosher, I am not familiar with Russell Westwood but the guy in the shades is certainly one of Dave's and Movie Dude's unknowns, hopefully an I. D.?

              • Not Russell Westwood, who I think was also a stuntman, played heavies in 50s stuff, most notably one of Herbert Lom's goons in Night and the City. Fellow in the shades is Unknown Male 66, reminds me of Graham Chapman a bit.

                  • Yes, cornershop, I think you're absolutely right! I recognise her, er, widow's peak. Many thanks for that.

                    And on the subject of Sam Wanamaker, he's in an ambiguous role in Danger Route (1967), but hopefully not ambiguous are uncredited appearances from:

                    • Not death but 10,550 miles have parted Alf from his missus in TILL DEATH US DO PART, but in the first episode of 1975, there's a "Phone Call to Else":

                      But first of course Alf (1) must go orf dawrn the pub and it looks like Alf (2) Mangan is there before him at the table and Alfie (3) Bass is just clearing the decks for the next round

                      The barman's not the usual Will Stampe, or indeed an Alf (4) but called "Les", and I suspect it's Leslie Noyes

                      And I more than suspect Dandy Nichols' filmed sequence was not in Australia, but at Ealing with a very dodgy floating back projection behind milkman Walter Sparrow.

                      Some listings have Margaret Elliott and Carolyn Moody in the cast and they must be the Telephone Voices that Alf (1) spars with, well, swears at, when he's trying to make the call.

                      • Hopefully not being paranoid about it, but the chap in the yodelling hat far left in these has previously been identified as Jack Armstrong:

                        But looking again, I think it's in fact Bob E. Raymond. Joining Oliver Reed in Paranoiac (1962) for his traditional plastering session in the local are Jack Taylor, Marianne Stone, Fred Peck, Laurie Leigh and Harold Lang.

                          This departing crowd of idle villagers includes Hilda Green, Golda Casimir, Joseph Tregonino and, I think, Wallace Bosco in the hat, totally unconcerned about Scilla Gabel's broken machinery and Eric Sykes' broken tootsies.

                            • Lady Hamilton, That Hamilton Woman, was filmed in Hollywood in 1940 (released in 1941), but can be classed as a Britmovie, not least of which for its use of many of the ex-pats working there. He's another one to add to its list:

                                Two Voice-overs of Daughters to add: the opening and closing narration is from Fenella Fielding and I think Miss Gabel's anything but delicate tones are supplied by Nikki van der Zyl.
