    Things are not looking too good for grandfather as Doctor Liam Gaffney is called in. It's not looking too good for Liam either as he is shown in the main titles, but is omitted from the end cast list and his role attribution doesn't seem to be given anywhere

    And it takes two officers to bring in the hairy drunk, P.C.s Desmond Llewelyn and Lawrence James.

    There are several close-ups of crowds in the film, but I suspect they were filmed in Ireland as non-one is recognisable.

          Jessie Royce Landis is content to stay put, however; Nigel would tear out his hair if it was real. Paul Beradi and Tony Spears (in white tux and interesting waistcoat) are obliged to remain to fill out the scene.

          • Quite a few of the betrayed in The Betrayal (1957), a Danziger Photoplay, as the credited cast list is as haphazard as the rest of the production, but at least some of our regulars get some "acting" and "speaking" to do:

            In a German prisoner of war camp, it's Anthony Baird as Roy who allegedly can speak French (it's of the Inspector Clouseau variety). Philip Friend is gobsmacked

            Fourteen years later, Philip's recovered enough to visit London and the Hotel Carlton, where the porter is Gilbert Winfield (credited) and the receptionist Keith Marsh (uncredited)

            Philip visits a dress designer's salon where well-kent faces (who we get to see later more clearly) are buyers, the quiff in the centre being that of Guy Standeven (who we don't see later more clearly)

            Philip's blind in this, so he doesn't see anyone clearly at all, not even waiter on the right Jack Dearlove, but at least Jack gets a line to say.

              Now onto those buyers who Philip and Diana investigate and first up is the credited Alastair Hunter who gets no role attribution, but plays Mr. Fleming

              Next is Mr. Field, played by Victor Harrington of Shape-Wear Skirts Ltd. no less. He does speak, but into the deep tones of Ferdy Mayne, who also plays very gay Freddie, a dress designer, also uncredited

              Then we get Arthur Dibbs as Mr. Miller, who sounds like he's dubbed too, possibly by the credited Ballard Berkeley, who gets all of one scene earlier in the film.

                Also no name for the copper who grabs Philip when they find something nasty in Tony Adams' (no, not the actor) flat. But it's Arthur Howell on duty, who gets a couple of lines to boot.

                      But Rex Harrison as Vivian manages it and it looks like it might be a youthful Tony Castleton is there to congratulate him at the back. (The Dean, played by the inevitably unyielding Kynaston Reeves, isn't so enthusiastic as the scene continues)

                      Rex finds himself in South America shortly after, no doubt to the Dean's relief) where he encounters exotic Patricia Laffan as Miss Fernandez and the anything but exotic Pat Ryan.

                        The upshot is a fistfight between them in the lift of a posh department store, where the staff is not impressed. Floorwalker Mr. Potter (Wallace Bosco) takes centre stage with his haughty look; he also gets lines to splutter out. Wallace may also be in the magistrates' court scene and Frederick Kelsey can be spotted in the department store sequence too.

                          Vivian turns his hand to motor racing, where at Brooklands the tic-tac man on the right looking for divine inspiration is Ernie Rice. Also inspired is the choice of some of the names shown: Jack Asher was the film's cameraman, Les Hammond was the sound recordist and Wilkie Cooper the director of photography

                          Once the Second World War gets going, so does Vivian and a senior officer looking rather like Monty pays a visit. He's possibly played by the credited Patrick Curwen.

                          Joan Hickson gets a screen credit, but there's no role attributions for anyone and her character seems to be named "Miss Parker" on the relevant websites, but she is clearly called "Miss Barker" by Griffith Jones several times.

                          • We know he had credits in the thirties (IMDb) but this is the earliest sighting yet Gerald of David Storm, left of Wallace Bosco.
                            James Ure never looked young.

                              Scott Palmer has quite rightly pointed that the waiter is in fact Gerhard Kempinski and he tells me Jan Van Loewen did indeed play a soldier.
