    Charles Mortimer (a ringmaster for once and not a police officer) has some bargaining to do with the musicians' union, including Cot D'Ordan (centre). Little Ian Wilson is out of shot, but on the big drum.

      • No. 1 of the Secret Service (1977) will never be no. 1 on anyone's list of favourite films, but at least it features:

        • Whilst searching for my Guy (poor pun intended) in the horror film Dream Demon (1988) I came across a few of our friends in the beautiful wedding decapitation scene.

ID:	57554 An elderly Jack Armstrong on the left and either Willy Bowman or Richard Atherton on the right. I always get these two mixed up. Looks like Reg Thomason third row left as well.
          Here we can see the reaction shot to the decapitation and that's Alan Harris at the front and, I think, Aiden Harrington third row. I think it's Guy fifth row, mouth agape, but it's too blurred to tell. I scrolled through the rest of this poor man's Nightmare on Elm Street but couldn't spot anyone else. It may be Eric Kent as a photographer a few moments after this scene but you can only see his eyes and forehead.

              Yes, Charlie Gray, and isn't that Lewis Alexander to picture right of the man standing up in the second picture?

              • The Private Secretary (1935) is so private and confidential, I'm unable to screencap it, but it's got a bewigged (or maybe still hirsute) Arthur Gomez playing an outraged headwaiter early on in the film.

                  In this episode, Lee Richards finally gets a decent close-up and even a line, but her barmaid role is more or less taken over by Fanny Carby, who gets to chuck all the barbed jibes back at Alf.

                    Well done, Gerald, to get 3 old favourites on screen. Lee, Fanny and Corinne. As you say, just a pity they don't do justice to the ladies in question.

                      And I think Agnes Imlay as Mrs. Freemantle, two of the vodka-swilling guests at Ivor Novello's tea party when I Lived With You in 1933, given the subtitle "his famous success"

                        First of all, at Elstree Studios airport, Ned Lynch seems happy to have got off his plane with Tony Anholt and Nyree Dawn Porter closing in from behind. The porter at the back looks rather like Lou Morgan, but when he gets closer, it isn't him

                        At a posh hotel that looks awfully like the then ATV Studios at Borehamwood, Walter Henry is an alert doorman. The extra on the right appears to be he not so alert and a crewmember is hauling him out of shot (but it's not).

                          I think that's Dennis Plenty hogging the foreground. Near the end of the episode, he's back in the same clobber, this time as a police detective

                            Can Eden Fox be far behind? He and Mike Reynell do some shocked acting as Robert points his weapon at Martin and Nyree remains as stony-faced as ever

                            They've probably knocked down some poor soul here being carted into the mortuary with Gary Dean on the right.

                            At the start of the episode, during a pointless arty sequence, there's a voice-over from a tough-sounding character and I'm sure it's Victor Maddern, who doesn't otherwise appear in the episode. He's probably away down Dick Green dock.

                                Well, you're looking at him, girl. The bowed head is the dyed one of Noel Purcell.

                                He's not in the film as far as I can see (lots of extras, but produced in Ireland), but an acknowledgement perhaps:
