    The postwar parades upset Lana Morris, but not Harold Coyne behind her.

      I agree it's Guy, have added both Guy and Aileen to Imdb. Mike Reynell is also in the restaurant scene.

          The girl with the big fear is Renée Asherson, with George Spence and I think Charles Rayford again (in flat cap top right) among the spectators.

          • Dirk Bogarde grows a moustache for the middle part of the film and swaggers about as a speedway star. At a smart Chelsea party hosted by Moira Lister:

            There's little doubt that it's Hyma Beckley taking his turn for camera hogging in the centre, with Anthony Oliver borrowing Charles Rayford's pipe and Moira looking supercilious in the background

            Dirk gets too big for his boots as far as Sidney James is concerned, as Harold Coyne manoeuvres a spare tyre. For once, this film is on Harold's list

            Eerily, just as I thought about Ian Selby, at a WAAF do up he pops doing some camera hogging of his own, with Renée and Bonar unaware of his jolly upstaging.

            Also playing a "swagman" is an uncredited Sam Kydd. The name of his character is Johnny Briggs and of course many moons later, Sam played the father of Johnny Briggs' Mike Baldwin character in CORONATION STREET.

            Dirk's character is called Bill (William) Fox and of course there have been at least two British actors of that name, one re-named as James Fox, as well as a pioneer American film producer.

                    And although the waiter has just been goosed by Robert, we can't forgive him for hiding most of the silver fox diner in the right background, who I am sure is Ned Lynch.

                      Here one is modelled by George Holdcroft at the Flood Zone Headquarters. The shirts are no doubt wardrobe department left overs from the previous year's visit to Campbell's Kingdom. John Crawford meanwhile thinks he's Indiana Jones

                        Things must be getting serious as John Phillips has put his white coat on, but Sheriff Eddie Byrne is sharing the latest drowning joke with a pal. In the background, it's down to officer Fred Stroud to do show his mates how to create lovely doodles, though in a later sequence, Fred nearly steals the scene by tripping over a table leg
