            The arse-kicked Johnnie (Gladys Henson's character is listed as "Mrs. Sarah Arscott" ) seeks solace from Billie Whitelaw, but she's too busy at her party where Ken Hutchins on the right is one of the guests.

                        I'm not sure Jack Mandeville under pale blue parasol would qualify, nor his "twin brother" who can be seen wandering around in this sequence in different clothes and a black top hat . Jack also pops up later as a party guest. The gentleman with the jutting chin may resemble Reg Thomason very slightly, though he's too old for the Squire at this point, but apparently Reg is in the film somewhere

                        • Those crowds and this party provide two of the three big calls for extras in the film, but sadly very few are recognisible:

                          The third opportunity for sightings comes when we're back again in the chamber of the House of Commons, where it's the turn of Frederick Kelsey to don a clerk's wig. He's also in the earlier street crowd scenes. That's Hugh Williams coming in to our left of the Speaker's chair

                          The representatives of the people, all husbands of the ideal variety no doubt, and nary a lady in sight - they didn't even have the vote then, dammit, old chap - but joining Hugh I can see Norman Fisher on the front bench in the (gasp) mustard-coloured waistcoat, Ian Selby two rows behind him and George Spence second right on the second row. Votes for any more?

                          At the start of the film, there's some brief narration, and it sounds very much like it's Ralph Richardson.
