  • John Payne seemed to have disappeared by the 1960's then reappeared in the 70's in small credited parts, I saw him as a credited waiter with dialogue in an episode of 'Sykes'.

      That's who I meant, had a brain hiccup. At least I got the first name right!

      • Movie Dude has already covered The Blue Lamp (1949), so there's only a few more flashes of it to add here:

        Spivvy barrow boy Glyn Houston shortly follows and that may be Roy Everson ignoring his luverly cherries. Roy can be seen again in the White City sequences near the end of the film

          Michael decides to place a bet with bookie Ernie Rice that he can't tic-tac with his pipe in situ.

          Sam Kydd plays another bookie and he may also provide the voice of one of the police patrolcar men in the chase. That other regular phantom credit Arthur Mullard does appear too, as a policeman at the darts match.

          • I'm sure we've done The Fast Lady (1962) before, and Movie Dude has certainly done a Rolls-Royce of a job on it, but as often is the case, you go for another spin and some more passengers emerge:

            Esma Cannon is in tough little old lady form in this one, with Hugh Elton sauntering by and Charlie Price on his bike. Charlie is in several more scenes as a passerby either side of this one, but in a grey suit

            Esma's having nothing of James's platitudes and is about to use her umbrella in energetic style. Now, is that Muriel Greenslade also staying well clear on the left? I think Mabel Etherington is elsewhere in the film.

              Leslie earlier tries to encourage Stanley about his driving test and George Lane Cooper plays safer than Reg and decides he isn't a chicken and doesn't cross the road.

                The soldier behind Bud Flanagan I believe is John Falconer (the extra previously referred to as Bert Vivian) looking younger than usual, while Chesney Allen is looking more intense than usual.

                  The club members want their pounds of flesh and there's many pounds of that on Rita Webb. David J. Grahame looking mournful at the back is as lean as ever though, plus we also see Leslie Noyes (credited for once), Alfie Bass (called "Fred" instead of Bert by Stanley Meadows), Roland MacLeod, Patricia Hayes and Anthony Booth

                  There's an unexpected constabulary development at the end of the episode which surprises Leslie, Alfie, Felix Bowness (an outrageously gay "Felix") and Patricia and did we ever establish the name of the chap on the left - Reg Nardi? I think we should know the chap in glasses too.

                  • Feet of Clay (1960) is a pretty good Danziger quota quickie about a whiny punk who confesses to a crime he didn't commit.


                    Jeff Silk as the bailiff keeping a watchful eye on aforesaid surly punk Brian Smith.


                    And Reg Thomason sticking his nose in as 'Sir Also Appearing in the Court." Reg also briefly sows up in a restaurant scene, though mostly obscured by Vincent Ball's head.

                    I think Philly mentioned these on the old board, but here's photo evidence in case someone wants to enhance their IMDb entries.
