  • About to have their peaceful breakfast interrupted:

    Are H. G. Stoker and Barbara Everest as Edward and Mrs. Whaddon. Screen credits for them too, but unnamed roles

    The interruption heads to court where Francis L. Sullivan as prosecuting counsel Sir Charles lends his substantial bulk to the weight of evidence against the accused, even though he quite improperly interrupts the defence's address to the jury later on. Court officer Robert Brooks Turner behind Francis snoozes gently

    On that jury (blimey, women too!) we see Wallace Bosco possibly checking his texts. Could the monocled foreman be a young(ish) J. Neil More?

    • James Booth has little clue when he claims he knows The Secret of My Success in 1965, but hopefully we have more clues to have success with:

      The butler though didn't do it - he got it instead! Flipping this round, we see it's poor old Alf Mangan who got it, although Alf doesn't play the butler in his death throes a few minutes earlier

ID:	41637 James has a speech to say, but Antonio Mayans as José doesn't look very impressed. Antonio would be even less impressed to discover that after dubbing mixer Fred Turtle has had his way, all but one of his speeches has been dubbed by Robert Rietty. In fact, in the South American sequences, filmed in Portugal, several of the characters have the voice of Mr. Rietty

ID:	41638 But not British television interviewer Roger Avon, who retains his own vocals. The chap in the bowler is someone who cornershop drew our attention to several years ago and he had a bowler on then too in a couple of pictures from different things he had been spotted in. The bowler was clearly the secret of his success.

      IMDb lists Joan Hickson as Mrs. Pringle, but Angela Pringle is also listed as played by Ann Lancaster, as indeed she does in the film I saw. But no sign of Miss Hickson.

      • Going way back to Post #460, Gerald Lovell asked about Pamela Plant and Jimmy Plant in "Demobbed" (1944).
        Belated confirmation. Sorry Gerald, I haven't been on this site for a few months. Yes, Jimmy Plant is my grandfather. He was a singer and light comedian. He was a straight man for one of the popular Scottish comedians and was the MC for some variety and music shows on radio. There is a scene in the factory where Jimmy Plant is chatting to one of the other players, then a "factory girl" comes up and has a line (something like, "the delivery has arrived in the loading bay" or somesuch). She was 17 at the time. When we saw it on TV some time in the 1980s she had only remembered spending an afternoon packing crates. We all strained to work out which girl in the background might be her, when she suddenly turned up and spoke. It was very strange for me, to see my mum at 17. She was delighted!

              And the Dracula in the centre who never learns to keep out of churches is Peter Brace rather than Christopher Lee.

              The Mission which is a front for the bordello has the previously-sighted Peter Avella, Dido Plumb and Jimmy Charters in attendance, plus Horsey-Face gets a line to say and some acting to do, but I couldn't see the reported Jim Brady there.

                Fresh air is good, so little John Mills' rugby match is watched by littler George Harris, burly Leslie Fuller and skinny Ronald Shiner, but also moustached Wallace Bosco, beret and pipe even then in place. And as it's 1934, he gets acting and lines to perform which, unlike his comments and the sign put on his back, are not "poor, very poor"

                Though no face for the camera yet in this situation in A&E which was nicked for Carry On Doctor 30-odd years later, though when the po comes off, it's really is a Po resident inside, the boy Robert Rietty, who gets nothing to say.

                  Alec Finter as the full of himself court officer centre foreground. Richard Bird is the witness about to give evidence. I realise that Alec played the same function in The Warren Case (1934), covered above. He, Raymond and Kathleen all get screen credit, but no role attributions on IMDb

                  Francis L. Sullivan, also for the prosecution in The Warren Case, at least gets a screen credit this time, but in one of her finest hats, courtroom spectator Gertrude Kaye does not.
