    A military operation goes off like a bomb, well, several in fact, but these Washington bods (Jack Hetherington, Fred Machon and Philip Nellor) know nothing about it

    Nor do Walter Henry, Philip Stewart and Vernon Duke, though I suspect sleepy Ronald Fraser may have a clue

    James Ure, diplomat William Hutt and Victor Harrington are boggling (Victor particularly) at Ronald's revelations.

      But it's strangely all pals again, much to the pleasure of the lady in the hat, Gertrude Kaye

      Andrew's small hat with a surprise inside is not to his pleasure, however, as Norman Fisher looks on

      Our Norm's mobbed for some reason and policemen Ernest Fennemore, John Tatum and John Adams are struggling to hold them back

      But thankfully they manage it and, courtesy of Colin McKenzie, Norman gets his just rewards for putting me through having to watch another of his films.

      • Are these still from There Was a Crooked Man (1960)?
        That's the last title you gave

            Can you copy the film title onto each post?
            Somtimes your multi-post pages are split onto multiple different web page and we have to go back a page to see which title they’re from

            Also when the subject changes drastically, it’s not always obvious that they’re still from the same film

            e.g. For your batch of stills from There was a Crooked Man, the first lol all showed Norman in civilian roles. Then you switched to more military stills without any sign of Norman.

            A film title on each post post would be a big help

            Thanks

            Steve

            • I don't think he needs to do that. His posts run seemlessly from one page to the next. It's ALWAYS obvious that it's a continuation of the same film. No one has ever complained about this before. Leave it Gerald, don't feel pressured into changing something for no good reason. Fight the system!!!!!

                Well I thought that they were for a different film. They didn’t have anyone recognisable to me in them (no sign of Norman Wisdom) and they were about a very different subject, changing from civilian scenes to military scenes. I have never seen the film so I didn’t know that they were all from the same film

                        When the coast's clear, Liam Redmond heads over to Vic from his liaison with Murray Kash and Dervis Ward and lucky Peter Brace is safe and well in the background.
