      It in fact belongs to Tony Mendleson (in his moustache period!).

        Elvi Hale and Keith Michell get along much better in this than when they appeared in THE SIX WIVES OF HENRY VIII. Jack Armstrong gets along just fine appearing in the background

        At the tables, Cecil Parker, Avice Landone, Betty Stockfeld and Charles Clay all have different systems (of losing), watched closely by Harry Van Engel and Jack Mandeville (who thinks he's the prototype James Bond). That's Jacques B. Brunius lurking in the background

          Winging around the dance floor when John Gregson and June Thorburn are there is the cheesily-grinning Fred Davis (who can be glimpsed earlier chatting to Jack Armstrong). That's Pat Hagan edging back into shot on the right

          Not only have June and John had enough, but Jack is leaving too and now we can see his companion is most likely his missus Alicia St. Leger (Armstrong)

          June is John's missus in this and she's leaving too. And before we leave, we can observe James Ure is with yet another lady in a hat.

            But that doesn't stop Arthur English joining in the usual rants and illogical arguments with Richie Stewart. Cy Town just continues to prop up the bar.

                              And as Arthur gives his perjured evidence, I'm pretty sure that's Robin Burns taking everything down; this is not the earliest sighting of Robin as he was in Rembrandt made at the same studio the previous year.

                              Miles Malleson wrote the screenplay, and as is usual for IMDb in these circumstances, he's listed in their uncredited minor role department too, yet there was no sign of him in the film.
