    Silly Glynis Johns is sucked into a gambling den where Ernest Blythe, Muriel Greenslade and Mabel Etherington are among the patrons; it's only the back of Mabel's head here, but she can be seen more clearly walking around the casino in later shots

    Glynis runs out of chips, and although Harry (Richard Gregory) takes her rubber cheque, boss Edwin Styles in the background knows she's had her chips too.

      Later, having lunch, the weak Glynis falls into the clutches of the wicked Ursula Howells, and I don't think much of the sweet trolley choice offered by waiter Rex Garner either

          And wrapping up Olive's life of crime is Frank Hawkins on the left with Pat Symons putting on a face, and she certainly had one, just picture left of centre.

            And Inspector Jim Morris has to do some Babs grabbing when she gets into her flat.

            The lighter yarn of the wicked money-grabbing Millie Williams (Athene Seyler) is next:

              Glynis and Diana Dors have just left a measly tip for waitress Irene Handl. A startled Richard Nellor looks on, realising his intention of leaving 6d might not be a good idea after all.

                  • Great caps again Gerald for 'The Weak and the Wicked'

                    In the Ernest Blythe cap I think that's Keith Banks at the back.
                    Terry Sartain cap, is that Monty DeLyle as the croupier? Esme Smythe right of shot in front of Len.
                    I think the Santa is also Arthur Howell.
                    Frank Hawkins cap, a young Eileen Harvey far right.

                    • Many thanks again, philly. I didn't think that was Monty/Monti as the nose wasn't bent enough (!), but I believe you're right. I can never spot Esme, but I knew those Santa eyes were familiar!

                      • Excellent work with all of those sightings, Gerald. Unless this is a lookalike, you missed Aidan Harrington in the faitground scene:



                        If you find this, Anthony ... As you have an interest in stock footage, I thought you might like to know I figured out the shot of the London theatres that appears in the US opening titles of Gideon's Way (as 'Gideon C.I.D.') was filmed sometime between March to May 1958. Duel of Angels was showing at the Apollo (hopefully you'll be able to make out the star names of Vivien Leigh, Claire Bloom and Freda Jackson) and Grab Me a Gondola at the Lyric (no names displayed).

                        Was the following shot, featuring a distant view of the London Pavilion, filmed the same day? Who knows? To me it looks like half of the six (?) stars are obscured by the statue of Eros, as well as the mystery title.

                        • Looks a fair bit to me like Aidan, cornershop, though it's not on his list.

                          Before Alf encounters "The Window" in TILL DEATH US DO PART, he's inevitably in the pub:

                          Where fey Felix Bowness is squeaking out badly a variety of old standards (lamp standards would be more entertaining), accompanied by Tom McCall; Rita, Mike, Min and Bert in the foreground and I believe that's Charles Rayford at his chubbiest in the flat cap

                          Alf's thumbs up is not for Felix as he launches into an anti-gay tirade, and he nearly obscures the other flat-capped gent who I think is Jimmy Mac.

                                And the theatre staff is easily pleased too, including Roddy Hughes as a snooping secretary who gets no lines, Bertram Dench I think as a doorman and Ben Field.
