    In The Hills of Donegal (1947), possibly just to the north west of the Road to Mandalay:

    Could that be Jack Armstrong right in the second row of the audience, or is it just stock footage in this budget-conscious Butcher Empire Production?

    But it's certainly namesake Jack Mandeville enjoying the aftershow booze-up and that's Irene Handl in the middle searching for her little chihuahua

        The last episode of series 2 of SOFTLY SOFTLY TASK FORCE (tx: 10.03.1971) encourages "Cash and Carry", but some of the customers want to carry without cash. Enforcing law and order:

        And a somewhat unsavoury beaming Charles Adey-Gray.


        The heavies in this episode are Dinny Powell, Terry Walsh and Alan Chuntz, and it's nice to see them all get a screen credit for once.

          "Cash and Carry" is also nice as it gives us a credited role - and lines - for Louis Matto as dodgy restaurateur Guzzoni, here having more than just his veal grilled by Frank Windsor:

              Countess Dracula (1970)

              Among those present at the reading of the late Count's will, are widow Ingrid Pitt, loyal Major-Domo Nigel Green, and at the back, shifty servant Maxwell Craig.

                  That that is Paul Phillips at the bar in She Knows Y'Know (1961) with Cyril Smith and Joe Gibbons having a laugh, which is more than most of the audience would have had watching this film.

                    • Assorted Sightings


                      Hello, Gerald. A few that were missed when covered at the original forum ...


                      The taller lady at the back in this airport scene from The Saint - The Reluctant Revolution (1966) is Lorna Kilner:



                      The men in uniform are (l-r) Martin Benson, UM 105 & Peter Illing. Pretending to be asleep, Bernard Barnsley.



                      Assisting German General Paul Dawkins in the film version of Dad's Army (1971) is Maureen Nelson:



                      I thought the young man standing next to her was Christopher Timothy, but it's not.



                      An early appearance from Rosemary Chalmers, and Sean Connery, in Hell Drivers (1957):



                      With the under-used Gordon Jackson and unknown extras.



                      The token male subject - Garth Watkins in the On the Buses episode Busmen's Perks (1970):



                      Garth must be the Manager of the depot (a role later played by Michael Sheard). Conductor Bob Grant and obscured driver Reg Varney address him as "Sir" when he and secretary Lynn Dalby nonchalantly walk past them.

                      And I think Kapitän zur See Reg Turner and a sneering Lew Hooper on the left. Probably already sighted, but felt like disposing of my two pence.

                          Billy decides to entertain the passengers with one of his echo-chamber songs and to hell with stowing the hand luggage. Jack Arrow gazes forward manfully.

                            Moving to The Lotus Club, although Bernard Barnsley is sitting this one out, you can see right at the back Harry Van Engel is still at it, albeit in a different outfit.
