      Thanks for the dancing couple. Just keen to confirm for my own sake. Not diminutive enough for my old man, but he was also quite a good dancer so I wondered if he might have found a way to pop up. I'm still a little embarrassed that I mistook the ID in that other picture. Stare at something long enough and you'll convince yourself of anything.

                But Gerik Schjelderup is trying to notice low-flying canaries in the fog.

                IMDb includes John Longden in the uncredited list as "officer", but I didn't see him, low-flying or otherwise.

                      The P.C.s who have totackle the chanters include Ken Sedd (left) and Vic Taylor (right); Pat Gorman's there too but he gets not only lines and a screen credit but a lovely close-up to boot.

                              dissolute it was Claire Gordon in Beat Girl, the credited role of Honey, she was a trainee stripper so it was meant to be a kinky French Maid outfit.
                              Does anyone know who the girl with the drinks is?

                                The Prince and the Pauper (1962) is a Walt Disney adaptation of the Mark Twain novel about two identical boys born at the same time to different families, one was Prince Edward the heir to Henry VIII and the other was Tom Canty (both Sean Scully). The Prince saves Tom from a beating when he is caught peeping through the palace gates, fascinated by the likeness he invites him in to his chambers, they agree to temporarily swap places, however attempts to meet up and swap back are thwarted, Tom is thought to have gone temporarily mad by the courtiers and the King (Paul Rogers) and his Uncle the Earl of Hertford (Laurence Naismith), he decides to play along successfully delivering a speech at a banquet. During the banquet a messenger arrives and announces that the King is dead, Tom is pronounced King. Meanwhile the Prince is harassed by Tom's father John Canty (Donald Houston), he takes him on the run with him as he is wanted for the murder of Father Andrew (Niall McGinnis), John expects his son to beg and steal for him and ends up with a den of thieves, in charge is 'The Ruffler' (Nigel Green). Previously the Prince is protected by Miles Hendon (Guy Williams), his father abducts him from Miles, eventually he tracks him down to the den and saves him. When Miles and Edward return to the city, they hear that Tom is to be crowned, the Prince sneaks in to the Coronation and announces the switch, Tom owns up but is not believed, only knowledge of the Royal Seal will be proof but Edward doesn't remember where he left it, only when it is described as a heavy gold stamp does Tom realise that he has been using it as a nutcracker. Everything is resolved the King makes Tom his ward and Miles an Earl.
