    An anxious Frankie's entrusted with Charles's 2/6d bet; no doubt similarly indebted are Charlie Price, Jimmy Charters and Jack Sharp. Jack turns up a few times, but also gets the role and dialogue of a tar man later on. It looks like Manny Michael between Frankie and Charlie, but it isn't

    An even more anxious Francis now, joined by Jim Morris and Victor Harrington (who's actually in the crowd for the first race too). Horsey-Face is there as well and possibly Jimmy Cains behind our Frank's barnet, maybe still real at this point. Charlie Price is at the back now and it's only a Pat Hagan lookalike on the right

    It's the turn of Lionel and Alfie to look anxious now as they might have to dish out some dough, with George Hilsdon as usual a tic tac man and George Spence as another bookie

    Frankie puts his dog into the trials, as well as the trap the wrong way round. Richard Gregory, with lines, suggests he try front first.

      Frankie's watched by Ray Schock, I think, and Harry Van Engel. Harry may also play one of the greyhound handlers earlier in the film

      About to see his chat-up line going nowhere is Billy Wilmot, with barman Arthur Sandifer sensibly staying well back from the fracas that is all around them in Sam's Billiards Saloon, possibly the best sequence in the film. Those phantom IMDb cast list performers, Arthur Mullard and Ian Wilson, actually DO appear in this scene. Charlie Price is in it as well

        Charles does the two places at once trick when Andy Ho is pleasantly crowned, much to his amazement and that of Horsey-Face (also in the preceding picture), Jack Dearlove and Tony Castleton.

          The dumb romantic subplot performers, Terence Longdon (playing John Wyndham ) and Susan Beaumont, clap us out, with Jim Tyson again and Hubert Hill joining in.

          • So that does mean Terence went cuckoo, or did he win the triffid-ecta?

            • In this next one, Dave, Jack Buchanan plays John Bentley albeit with rather more verve than the real Mr. Bentley could ever muster, and as Hugh McDermott is also in the cast (and Norman Wisdom too, for heaven's sake), I don't think I could've survived if John Bentley had actually appeared. But those who do appear and As Long as They're Happy in 1955, even if they don't get credited:

                In the inevitable pub scene, sadly Joan Hickson gets nothing to say and little to do except keep dry, give unhappy looks and pour replacement G&Ts for Jack. Giving curious looks are Bill Baskiville and David Hurst

                And no name for the Lon Chaney, Jr. lookalike who gets a line to say as he carts a grand piano for Norman Wisdom.

                There are lots of other uncredited faces who get a listing on IMDb, including Edie Martin whose appearance in this film was one of the first screencaps featured on the original Sighted thread by the sadly absent Captain Waggett. Usual phantoms on the list are Arthur Mullard (no sign of him) and Sam Kydd as "Milkman". There is a milkman in the film, but he looks nothing like Sam.

                    Paul Beradi looks hopefully at the unknown stewardess serving lunch (has he gone for the vegetarian option?) with possibly Tony Spears across the aisle from him. Paul appears throughout the film as a hotel guest . . . and no buttonhole in sight at all

                      Chez Hotel des Alpes, sheepish David is joined by fellow guests John Smart, who does don glasses later on, Joan Young, who has donned an eyepatch after a close encounter with David on the piste and, can it be at last, Muriel Greenslade?
