    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.
    I meant to add, or at least subtract, I did not spot D. J. Williams, listed on IMDb in an uncredited role.

    • Let's have a bite at An Alligator Named Daisy (1955), which already has a long list of uncredited cast on IMDb (including Bill Shine in "Minor Role (uncredited)" which must've been so minor, I didn't spot him), but some more crawled into view of the camera:

      Arriving at customs, Jean(nie) Carson and Donald Sinden, with Daisy in a bag, don't see Graham Tonbridge pass behind them. Graham returns later as one of James Robertson Justice's chauffeurs. The customs officer is a stuntless Fred Haggerty

      It's not cricket for Daisy in that bag, who gets through customs without a hitch; hopefully Roy Everson in the raincoat behind Donald is as lucky

      Joan Hickson might need to play the theme to Jaws when she sees the contents of this piano. Assuredly, Victor Harrington will be goggle-eyed.

        Somehow, JRJ managed to sire Diana Dors, and here they all are at his country but and ben, aka Osterley Park House, where one of the servants is Tony Mendleson. Richard Wattis is the harried Hoskins and the other guests are Avice Landone, Stanley Holloway and Roland Culver, playing his son and Donald's father. Once we get right inside the house and back on a Pinewood soundstage, Tony is replaced between shots by another liveried flunky

        JRJ does not appear to appreciate the dubbed crooning of Ronnie Stevens (out of shot). Despite the usually dominating presence of Roland and Stanley, James nevertheless manages to out-boom them and John Wilder too

        Daisy decides to make a guest appearance at the party and having earlier slipped between the legs of my old chum Cyril Chamberlain, this lady experiences a pincer movement for which Philip Stewart is entirely innocent.

          Old Stan generally refers to alligators as "muggers" in the film, though in this shot, by accident or design, he clearly refers to Daisy as a "bugger". Paul Beradi and Fred Machon (third right) are terribly shocked as a result

          More shocked expressions from Mr. Beradi, Fred Stroud, Mary Maxted (centre), Esme Smythe, a couple away picture right of her (did I get her at last, philly?) and I think Pat Symons (right). Shortly after, JRJ shouts out "Stand fast, everybody!", with the previously-sighted Guy Standeven right beside him.

            Then we get to the "Alligator Rally", where some of the attendees dress up as though they're going to Ascot. Caught lounging next to the ice cream stall and who should have a sign with an arrow over him saying "John More here" is, well, John More. Looks like Mary Maxted is there as well

              And keeping his top hat when all around him are losing theirs is likely Bill Cummings.

              • Great Caps and spots for Esme and Muriel, Gerald. Arthur Sandifer far left in the first cap and Dennis Carnell on 'our right' of 'Old Stan'.
                Hoping UM43 is John Murphy, thanks to your Crimson Permanent caps, looking to find more evidence.

                • Many thanks, philly. I forgot to add that Paul Beradi, despite his close encounter with Daisy at the party, nevertheless can be seen at the Alligator Rally as well.

                    Gerld, a mugger is a species of Asian crocodile and the General, being an old Indian Army hand(?), would call it that. It does ressemble an alligator too,

                    Comment


                    • Thanks, cully. The General does call them muggers throughout, but in the scene I mentioned, he certainly calls Daisy a bugger. A bit of naughtiness by Mr. Holloway that the censors missed, I imagine.

                          And in Switzerland, ready to serve up a left hook to Torin Thatcher is Noel Madison, with Jack Mandeville appearing from the right.

                          Leslie Phillips is allegedly in this, and although there are boys in the film, I couldn't make out Leslie, or indeed any sequence with a cow featuring the voice of Terry-Thomas.
