    A Glasgow dockyard worker has witnessed something unpleasant. Is this Alexander Davion?

    And an unpleasant ending for The Long Haul as Vic has to emote over his son (called Butch!) played by Michael Wade, with Doctor John Welsh and ambulance man John Timberlake.

    • Apart from the loyal Janet, the members of the Tannochbrae Ladies Guild and Sewing Bee (sic) are all in awe of Dr. Alistair Campbell (Stephen Murray), one of "The Sons of the Hounds" in DR. FINLAY'S CASEBOOK:

      Including the hardly Scottish Madge Brindley! The very attentive Mrs. Armstrong (Madeleine Christie) on the right sits next to her.

      • Dave has already done There's Always A Thursday (1956), but there's always at least one more to find when you look again:

        Fred Davis as a sniffy neighbour of downtrodden Charles Victor . . . until Charles appears to have a mistress!

        IMDb has Andreas Malandrinos in a "Minor Role", but it's so minor, he's not in the film!

        • Great set of caps again Gerald for the Long Haul, I was thinking Peter Forbes Robertson for the Glasgow dockyard worker, Ken Lewington is sat opposite Jimmy Cains.

            Thanks as ever, philly, and yes, Peter Forbes-Robertson, who I should of course know.

              I'd like to see posts with the film title in them as well, and if possible identifications like "third from left" or "bloke in the appalling titfer" as sometimes I need to find another post that refers to one of the more obscure names.

                Gangway, it's Barry MacKay whispering to nabbed Nat Pendleton that the 1937 New York cop on the right appears to be Philip Stewart in another early appearance. Jessie Matthews is maybe not so sure.

                • Unlisted actors aplenty in Forbidden Cargo (1954) and let's examine the manifest for those in addition to the uncredited performers on IMDB (although I never spotted their David Davies, Douglas Ives, Hamilton Keene or Herbert C. Walton):

                  This footage of passengers passing through customs is used twice in the film. Richard Nellor is striding through the green channel in the centre and the later appearance of this scene, which lasts a bit longer, reveals that the hatted gent just behind Richard is Jack Mandeville. Both Richard and Jack have other roles in the film: Richard as a casino patron and Jack as a France-bound traveller. The customs officer on the right is John Horsley

                  Nigel has caught the local ringleader Eric Pohlmann, but officer Robert Gregory clearly finds it all tongue-in-cheek.

                    Nigel's partying with Jill Adams is rudely interrupted by revelations about Eric, and involved in the revels on the right is Roy Everson

                    Nigel isn't quite undercover but is off to Cannes to keep an eye on Elizabeth Sellars, which is a good shout on the public purse. The customs officers this time keeping their eye on the luggage and currency (Elizabeth is taking all of £5 with her!) are Hubert Hill and Cyril Chamberlain

                    While in France, Nigel finds himself at a dress show with John Howard and, hopefully, Muriel Greenslade. The younger lady has Joan Benham's eyebrows. In the same costume, John also reappears as a Windsor Hotel guest.

                        As is James Ure on the left. James Gilbert philosophically ponders if he's a glass half-empty or half-full man

                        George Hilsdon has previously been spotted as one of the police drivers in Harold Coyne's on the beach moment, but here he is again, this time on the Thames. I assume that unlike naval officers, customs men are allowed to have moustaches, at least of the glued-on variety

                        And usually with a pipe, but only with his missus here, is Ernie Rice; Terence meanwhile wonders if his forbidden cargo has been noticed by anyone.

                        • The Dark Road (1948), like most early Hammers, is a cheap mess of a film.


                          Really tough to figure out the cast here, so many unfamiliar names in the credits, but here's Joe Phelps as one of two bailiffs flanking the subject of the film, Sidney Robertson, played by Mr. I Have No Idea Who He Is. BFI and IMDb are definitely wrong in saying he's Charles Stuart, who actually plays Inspector Benson.


                          And I think Lindsay Hooper here as a Dartmoor Prison trustee.


                          Possibly a very young Fred Davis on the dance floor?


                          Howard Douglas pops up as a man buying stolen gems.

                          • Also on The Dark Road



                            Molly Hamley Clifford also gets to cut a rug.


                            And naughty credited David Keir tries to sell some stolen jewelry to uncredited James Knight.


                            Could the jeweler's assistant be a very young Guy Standeven?


                            The detecitve left to guard Keir from his over-emoting I think is Robert Gregory.

                            • And at the end of the Road


                              Apartment manager Hamilton Keene lets detective Frank Forsyth into the thieves' den, but they've already escaped.


                              Bill Rayment gets a nice closeup as a somewhat oblivious detective.

                              Gerald, your favorite Cyril Chamberlain appears here as an American newspaper editor whose accent sounds like he flunked his Bowery Boys tryout.

                              • I don't think that's Guy. In theory it could be though. He joined the army in 1946, the first film appearance we have for him is Secret People in 1952 but I don't think it looks like him.
