  • The V.I.P.s (1963) has been covered in depth by by both Gerald and Movie Dude, this film has so many actors moving around the airport scenes, I suspect some new actors will be spotted at each watching.

    Dinner Guest - John More
    Barman - Philip Webb
    Shop Assistant - Angela Kay
    Porter - David Baker
    Air Hostess - UF28
    Passengers - Jack 'Kid' Berg, John Preston, Ken Hutchins, Terry Yorke, Dan Cressy, Stephen Zammitt, James Ure, Jack Armstrong, UM8, UM17, UM70

    • Another film that's been covered in depth, by Dave and Movie Dude, is A Hard Day's Night (1964), and I think it's also one where each viewing produces further sightings:

      Another tall one, and he's got that ring of confidence around him here, is Gordon Stothart (also known as Gordon St. Clair)

      And with all those coppers around, spare one for the miserable officer third left, John Tatum.

      • Nice sightings, don't know how I missed John!! Might be time to give it another run through.

        • Illiterate but religious servant girl Esther Waters (Kathleen Ryan) falls pray to the sinful ways of Dirk Bogarde in 1948:

          Apparently the first (dubbed) appearance of Hilda Fenemore in film is as she pays Esther the wages of sin (under deduction for breakables . . .)

          Finding Dirk has got a licence to run the The Kings Head (sic) pub, Esther arrives and already there are Larry Taylor (Brylcreem and sideburns, second left) and Ewen Solon (cap and sideburns, leaning on the bar). Also there is Morland Graham (right)

          There at the Derby Day fair may also be a youthful Arthur Howell (grey waistcoat, hands in pocket) watching Harry Ross spouting nonsense to Esther and the punters.

          • Movie Dude has already done an exceptional job with Only Two Can Play (1961), but here are a few more players at a party held by Mai Zetterling and Raymond Huntley:

            That debonair life and soul of any gathering John Tatum arrives ahead of two guests Peter Sellers and Virginia Maskell, though Harry Van Engel is already there. Harry's previously been sighted in the later backstage theatre scenes, but he's likely playing the same character here

            Mai plays dumb over the choice of alcohol served by previously-sighted Paul Phillips, but Bunny Seaman looks like she's already had one or two over the odds. A blurry Rex Garner can be seen in this sequence as another waiter

            Two more guests here are George Holdcroft on the left and Lindsay Hooper in the background. Lindsey has other roles in the film, including a bus passenger and a play patron. Martin Lyder has been named as the chap between them, but I don't think it is him

              A Barrowlands ball for Gordon Jackson, Jimmy Logan, Janet Brown and Elizabeth Sellers, and just about drowning in the sea of faces is Charles Rayford, partially hidden by Gordon, and I think with the big hooter and big hair in the middle could be Colin McKenzie. Charles pops up again watching the launch of a ship near the end of the film

              Then at the launch, interspersed with stock footage, some extra Clydebank workers include on the right extra Chris Adcock and possibly George Curtis chatting to him no doubt wi' Glesca patter.

                  Reg Thomason is also in the court scene for literally 3 seconds. He gets a bit longer on camera in the background of this later café scene where barrister cum solicitor cum private detective Vincent Ball consults with Wendy Williams.

                    In the "Swinging Sixties"? I should think not

                    Even though the Swinging attitudes didn't really start until about 1965 and then only in LOndon before spreading slowly out to the rest of the country
                    But then, naming decades rarely ties in neatly with the calendar

                    • I know I've said this before, but our id of John Cam has always seemed dubious to me.
                      Now, I find Getty identifying the actor as Dennis Tate (the other is Hugh Cecil as we know), and I STILL think it's not the guy who turns up in The Champions, The Avengers, etc. anyway....
