  • Poor Michael York doesn't have a pleasant experience when he comes across men in stockings:

    And Nigel Davenport goes to court and cross-examines the Metropolitan Police on its policy in the matter. Colin McKenzie steels himself for the uniform change

    Pat Ryan may be called as a hosiery expert, but Nigel should know better than to address the court with his hands in his pockets. Or maybe he's checking on his hold-ups.

    Richard Warner appears as a magistrate in the earlier court scene, but his fruity tones also provide the voice-over of the judge at the beginning and end of the film.

      • Thanks, Dave. I didn't realise he had been identified.

          But poor old Felix has trouble being on the receiving end of outraged locals, including Jack May.

            And blowing the trumpet of the surprised Gerry Judge is George Moon. Interesting that two time travel comedies, this and Fiddlers Three, came out in the same year, and Gerry Judge is in both of them.

            • Gerald and Movie Dude. Hope you won't mind waiting a little while longer for my replies to your latest e-mails. You won't be surprised to read that recent problems continue to affect my enthusiasm for writing but will be pleased that I am gradually returning to form with the screencapping.

              At the moment I'm committed to the 1959 version of The 39 Steps. In addition to Gerald's sightings on page 31 of the old forum, and 32 for Michael Brennan's appearance, I can reveal that Unknown Males 25 (left) and 70 are among the audience at the Palace Music Hall:



              Unnamed Extras 14 and 63

              Also sure that cult favourite Lorna Kilner is there (UE 17). Look out for her at the soon-to-be-revived 'Somewhere in a Crowd'.


              Dramatic discovery from the opening titles of The Baron. A very precise freeze-
              frame revealed that one of the two men having a street punch-up is Alan Chuntz:



              From the first production episode Diplomatic Immunity.

              Cy Town, Harry Fielder and Ernest Jennings have also appeared in opening titles of TV series.

              • Nice sightings, cornershop. Victor Harrington is also in titles - he's "in" every episode of THE PERSUADERS! by virtue of lifted footage from THE SAINT.

                • The Whisperers (1966) was mainly filmed in and around Manchester, so local background artists were likely used, but in one of the National Assistance Office scenes:

                  As Avis Bunnage works her wicked wiles on poor Edith Evans, it looks like Tony O'Leary is there reading the racing results. There's also a exterior scene where a passerby looks like Alan Gibbs, but it's not on his list.

                  Nice to see Georges Spence and Hilsdon getting dialogue and screen credit as favourites of writer/director Bryan Forbes.

                    Also just remembered John Levene is the "running man" in the title sequence for some of the PAUL TEMPLE episodes.

                      Leslie Noyes is back behind the bar. Leslie's looking very serious, but I never forget him corsping at a line reading by Clive Dunn in "A Brush with the Law" from DAD'S ARMY made a couple of years or so before this.

                        There could be many more, Gerald. Including lost shows. The aforementioned Tony O'Leary is in the opening titles of the filmed Special Branch series with Harry Fielder


                        Latest sighting - Ernest Jennings in the Out of the Unknown episode Some Lapse of Time (1965):



                        Philologist (language expert) Delena Kidd tries her best to communicate with John Gabriel.

                        You may recall Ernest was also a patient in General Hospital - Episode 25 (1972):

                          Claude Hulbert dishes out work to the office boy, who I think is Ian Wilson and does NOT get a IMDb rogue credit for once!

                          Then on the tiles during the night, everyone gets well-oiled, including a trim Renee Houston and to right of centre, a bare-headed Gertrude Kaye who's joining in a chorus of "It's Four O'clock in the Morning". It looks like Claude's wearing Gertrude's hat. Apart from a possible appearance in the silent Underground (1928), this is the earliest sighting of Gertrude so far.

                          • Episode 2 of the BBC's 1958/59 production of OUR MUTUAL FRIEND (tx: 14.11.1958), like many productions of its day, lists extras in the end cast list, but without role attribution:

                            Here we see "David Grahame" (aka David J. Grahame) having words at chucking-out time with Peggy Thorpe-Bates. There's a "David Griffiths" also listed, but I didn't see any sign of the Dave Griffiths we know.

                            Comment


                            • I suspect the Dave Griffiths we know was an FAA member, all his credits at Movie Dude are film or ITC filmed series, they probably recruited background artists from that organisation, the BBC I believe used Equity so it is likely a different 'Dave Griffiths', this also means the Dave we know probably used a different moniker if he undertook Equity work, confusing.

                                And just having stuck his big nose into a bottle of meths is Noel Dainton as Detective Sergeant Brand with Charles Mortimer as the perceptive Detective Inspector Etchell under the impression it was crème de menthe. Both get a screen credit, but no role attributions.
