    Back in the station public area, Len Llewellyn is so busy doing his pools, he doesn't notice everything's been nicked off the counter except for a dud 1950s laptop and blotter.

      But as usual Alf just ends up having a row with others, namely Pamela Cundell, Spike Milligan and Fanny Carby . . . with a twirling Cy Town in the background.

          Maurice Bush and Peter Brace as Russian soldiers with Anthony Quayle's expectoration receptacle and tray of supplies respectively. Masked Anneliese Rothenberger and Dennis Price gingerly edge forward, and Richard Marner is jealous of all the medals Anthony has. Arthur Mullard turns up as several variously-dressed Russian soldiers on numerous occasions

          In a distorted camera drunk scene, the effect of which is almost lost in this dreadful print, director Michael Powell chose not to double expose, but use another actor as the "double". Here Dennis has Nicholas Bruce as his; Nicholas also gets two screen credits in the film as Hotel Receptionist and one of the "Gentlemen"

          At the end of the film, the waiters who have to clear up the 4 am mess as the revellers continue to sing are Louis Matto and Billy Wilmot.

          The "Ladies" include Jill Ireland, who can be seen as a hotel waitress and later in the arms of a singer in his pyjamas, and Olga Lowe, who appears as a lady in the hotel reception. Along with Nicholas Bruce, the "Gentlemen" include Robert Crewdson, seen in the final sequence as a fickle lover and Fredericks Schiller (a dressing gown-clad orchestra conductor) and Schrecker (the hotel doorman). At least part of the early narration comes from Anthony Quayle. IMDb includes Roy Kinnear in the cast list, but I couldn't see him.

          • The Man Inside (1958) is crime thriller, seemingly mild mannered Sam Carter steals a diamond worth $700K and murders two people, Milo March (Jack Palance) an investigator is hired to track Sam and the booty down, the baddie is also pursued by Trudie Hall (Anita Ekberg) who is determined to get her hands on the jewel, a gang of crooks led by Lomas (Bonar Colleano) are equally keen on a big payday. All the pursuers are given the runaround through Lisbon, Madrid and Paris before the conclusion in London where there is a happy ending (for the insurers at least).
            Pauline Chamberlain is noted at IMDb
            Guy Standeven was noted as being in this by cornershop at the old forum, I think in a partial filmography from Scott Palmer's files. Tigon if it helps he plays 'Train Passenger with a pipe' it distinguishes him from the other passengers anyway, Ernest is a Lisbon Hotel Guest and Victor a Madrid Hotel Guest.

              Although Peter Bathurst does his best to dodge the seagulls over Sorrento on location on Alderney, it sounds if his voice is dubbed by Basil Dignam.

              • Being a lousy sniper in 1973 can have its bonuses in THE PROTECTORS, even when it's "A Matter of Life and Death" (with no apologies to Powell and Pressburger):

                • Several well-known extras pop up in the Doctor in Charge episode I've just watched, Doctors' Lib (1972). Look out for Vi Kane (about 4.30), Ernest Jennings giving a 'V' sign (7 mins), soon followed by Bill Gossling listening to his watch ticking, and in the scene where George Layton has to attend a meeting (18.18) Jim Delaney. Philly, you might remember the second man, with beard and monocle, from the Callan episode None of Your Business (Vi Kane again, on the left). I think his name is Archie Wilson:

                  IMDb has another phantom credit for Ian Wilson for this film. The cast is pretty small, but I could see no sign of even smaller Ian.

                    • Gerald did an excellent job on The Weak and the Wicked (1954), a few new finds and the UM/F's

                      Winnie Baden - Suzanne Wilde
                      Shopper - Bess Rogers, Eileen Harvey, UF1, UF36, UM29, UM30, UM89 (again)
                      Prisoner - Audrey Sykes, Joyce Everson, UF41,UF44,UF56
                      Prison Wardress - Janet Burnell, UM51

                      Fairground Patron - UF23 (again), UM125, UM127

                      " Monkey's Smoking a Pipe" - Jack Sharp, Roy Everson, Lindsay Hooper

                      In the trailer for this there is one close-up of a panicked Glynis Johns surronded by bustling fairgoers that is not in the film, so i have used Harry Fielder's 'Monkey Smoking a Pipe' description of an extra filming a scene and it not be seen in the final cut.

                      Frank Howard is the actor not the stuntman
