    A hat-trick of Lorna Kilner images ... or are they? Only sure of the first two:



    UE 67 in Scrooge (1970), left, is an excellent match for her customer in Callan -
    Charlie Says It's Goodbye. But is that Lorna in the 1959 version of The 39 Steps?

      Then in a Norwegian village, among those unable to get a digital radio signal is George Spence.

      The opening narration for the film sounds rather like Ian Fleming and in an early Fleet Street pub scene, joining George Woodridge at the bar is John Adams; it's a tracking shot and unfortunately, the image is too blurred to post.

              Though there's a lot of 'umbleness from Ron Moody which appears to bemuse Susan Hampshire. Joe Phelps, I believe takes centre stage.

                The sign says in part "Australia This Way", but it looks more like St. Katherine Docks to me. Lewis Alexander is there to punch the tickets down under for Michael Redgrave and Sinead Cusack as David C bids them farewell

                There's a bit of crying in the rain for him here, but at least Jim Brady just about manages to get into shot on the right.

                    They're shoreline rescuers; unfortunately for Corin Redgrave, they're not up to much!

                      And taking Adrian's temperature is Doctor Guy Standeven who delivers two lines yet gets no credit. At least in 1925 he can charge his bill to Bernard Hepton.

                        Then up before the beak Flora Robson, Jean gets some kind of character reference from Dennis Price and it looks as if it's Fred Davis jotting it all down in the background between them

                        When Herbert gets a new club, Tony Mendleson is there to stay goodbye to him as on-the-loose Jean prepares to descend the stairs and Griffith Jones and Harry Ross just help themselves to Herbert's booze so they can have a good time too.

                        Tony's appearance seems slightly coy and unnecessary and although we know Emil Stemmler was Herbert's stand-in, I wonder if Tony was as well.

                          Not on his list again, but as The Devil aka George Spiggott aka Peter Cook threatens the world with more greasy hamburgers, it does appear to be Harold Coyne hurrying in for some more cholesterol raisers.

                            A day at the races, and Pat Ryan, or at least from his eyes down second right, may be disappointed too if he hasn't backed a winner. Sydney King and Raymond Lovell certainly are in the foreground, but not in the money.
