            • Sparrows Can't Sing (1962) is the film adaptation of Stephen Lewis's stage play, quite a lot of location work here so not many of our favourites appear. There is a long pub scene at the end of the film, it starts filling up with stuntmen, so it was obvious there was going to be a fight. No sign of the Kray Twins. Several of the cast members reconvene in the pub at the end, they seem to be playing different characters.

              Flamingo Club Barman - Maurice Bush
              Taxi Driver - Fred Griffiths
              Man at Party - George Eugeniou
              Charlie's Friends - Ron Carr, UM61
              Pub Barman - Paddy Joyce
              People in Lift - Alan Gibbs, UF38
              Wolf Whistling Passerby - UM71
              Passerby - Pat Ryan
              Stripper - Eve Eden
              Janet's Boyfriend - Terry Richards
              Pub Patrons - Bill Brandon, Gerry Crampton, Manny Michael, Eddie Eddon, Del Watson, Jim Brady, Bernard Barnsley, Bob Simmons, Peter Perkins, Bill Reed, Terence Plummer, UF52, UM145

              The Blu-Ray extras add Joan Littlewood as Greengrocer's Stall Customer and Slim Watts as Pub Barman, also noted is several of the Krays associates appear in the Flamingo Club scene but not the Krays themselves.
              A little googling reveals that one of the aforementioned Kray associates in the Flamingo club is Pat Connelly.

                  And when there's a rousing chorus of "Knees Up, Mother Brown", Alf again forgets he's supposed to be an invalid, and yet a festive Kathleen Heath cares not one jot.

                    Gerald, I think that's Linda Leo, seen here in Carry On Regardless:



                    Browsing Movie Dude's gallery, I noticed the girl I've referred to as the "Carol Lynley lookalike" has been identified as Miranda Tench. Many congratulations to whoever came up with that (was it philly again?). Ironically, I know her best as Janina Faye's uncredited ice skating colleague in The Human Jungle - Thin Ice.

                    It was last night's episode of The Four Just Men that inspired me to scan No Time for Tears, hoping to find Yvette Hosler. Almost finished this screencapping session and am hopeful that both she and Janina are in the pantomime audience I'm looking at (in red and blue respectively). I need to do a lot of editing before I post my evidence. More certain about future St. Trinian's actress Gilda Emmanuelli. She is addressed as "Joy" by Anna Neagle, who calls another patient "Lesley" - presumably the Scoble twin. But I'm most frustrated by my inability to recognise their co-stars in the recently-seen Village of the Damned, June Cowell and Mark Milleham.

                    Two other actresses connected with The Human Jungle are in this film: the memorable Judith Stott and series regular Mary Steele as "(The Blake?) Twins' mother".

                    • Thank you, cornershop, though as I said before, children can be so difficult to recognise as they change so quickly as they become grown-ups.

                      Some grown-ups here, albeit they behave like children throughout The Middle Watch (1939):

                            And it looks like David's puzzling over him too. Jack Armstrong and Ron Gregory bring up the rear. Scott Palmer has spotted Jack no less than five times in this film (I could see him twice) and I've sighted Ron three times in it.
