  • There's a Bomb in the High Street in 1963, and uncredited cast hovering around there too:

    Outside, moaning and harassed Superintendent Haley (Jack Allen) avoids being run down by driver Colin McKenzie, though the Super becomes incredibly wise and benign in the last scene of the film

    On the barrier, it's P.C. Joe Phelps who's harassed by the moaning Civil Defence commander Mr. Ventry (Gerald Case), but least Joe gets one line to say

    When the bomb disposal lads arrive arrive, I think it's John Wilder as the relieved Constable Adam who quickly delivers his line and scarpers. Appearing to be onto bombs though are Ronald Howard, Geoffrey Bayldon, Peter Gilmore, James Villiers and Russell Waters.

      The one second left gives a hard time to plucky Terry Palmer on his bike, and not just because he's not wearing a helmet. The others who are helmeted are George Curtis (named P.C. Thompson in the earlier police station scene) and I think John H. Watson (probably called P.C. Big Ears)

      Here's that last scene with the Super offering wise counsel to Terry and Suzanna Leigh when reporter Humphrey Lestocq is asking probing questions. Looking on from the background with probing glances appears to be Sidney Gross just over Terry's shoulder

      Terry has one more phone call to make, probably to his agent, but John Timberlake gets in his appearance just in time.

      • Additional sightings in 'Man at the Top' (1973 film version)

        Hi, Gerald. You wouldn't have known at the time of your post, in July 2013,
        but that's Bill Gossling on the right (with John Conteh and Kenneth Haigh):



        I will take your word for it that the barman is an older Charles Rayford.


        Alternative shot of Bill that's a fair match for the photo dissolute posted:




        The policeman outside the mortuary is the oft-seen Kevin Moran:




        And the detective taking notes from Harry Andrews in the same scene is Mike Reynell:



        Look out for a better image of Mike when 'Rare close-ups' is revived tomorrow.

            • Puppet on a Chain (1971) is another in a long line of Alistair MacLean adaptations, with an oddly cast Sven-Bertil Taube investigating drug smuggling in Amsterdam. Move Dude has covered this before, but here are some additional sightings. Lots of location filming, but once we're in Michael Mellinger's hotel, we are back at Pinewood, as evidenced by


              Fred Machon as a guest, and


              Francis Batsoni as a bellhop (or whatever the Dutch term is)


              John More (who gets quite a few lines that don't appear dubbed) has already been sighted, but I think his wife here could be Ann Blake (or maybe Joan Sanderson?)


              Even out of focus, Pat Judge's goofy grin is unmistakable.

              Comment


              • Much of the film centers around a warehouse where the heroin is shipped out from. I can't tell if it's in Holland or England, as the extras playing cops look familiar, whether stuntmen flown out for the film, or just extras if the warehouse was indeed in England?


                Is this perhaps Victor Croxford on the left?


                Obviously Peter Brace on the left, but who is the henchman on the right? His sideburns ring a bell.

                Joe Dunne is listed on IMDb as "barge hold henchman", but though Dunne was the stunt coordinator, the barge henchman is clearly Gerry Crampton.

                  Mike (the sadly late Anthony Booth), Rita and Bert are used to Alf's extreme opinions, and here it's Leslie Noyes back again as the barman listening in. Although he and the buxom barmaid do get lines, they get no credit (nor for that matter does the designer of the episode for some reason).

                    Regular philanderer Hugh Dempster knocks back the first of several vodkas we see in the film, watched by steady Niall MacGinnis, with waiter Alan Tilvern on the left ready to refill the glasses

                    Unfortunately, Niall's brother Michael Gough is not so steady, and he's had more than just several vodkas when he causes a scene, much to the dismay of diner Frederick Kelsey (who's been spotted previously in the later racetrack scenes too)

                      And when there's an accident, as well as Viv looking distraught, I think that's Fred Haggerty on the left looking nosy.

                        But it's not wise to gatecrash Ralph's reception as a bold as brass Heather Thatcher and also disguised and scrubbed-up Dido Plumb are among the guests.

                        • Great sightings Gerald for 'Anna', sorry i think it's a young UF22 rather than Muriel.
                          Trivia for this film, Peter Wright told me in correspondence that he played half of a 'Dancing Couple' in this.

                          • Thanks, philly. There's some ball scenes early on in the film, so Peter Wright may have been in those. Also, Maxine Audley, Barbara Murray and Leslie Phillips are apparently in the film too, but I didn't succeed in sighting them.
