    The exit is to get to Euston Station where Charles Rayford is checking tickets at the entrance. Talk about overdressed, and for a journey to Glasgow, missus!

    • When there's a "State Visit" from 'Cozy-gin', Alf and Else head to Downing State for a chance to boo in TILL DEATH US DO PART (tx: 20.02.1967):

      Joining in the boos is Bill Burridge (far right, just like Alf!).

      • Great caps Gerald for Play it Cool, i have revisited this film a few times, always seem to spot someone new, i hadn't noticed John Doye and Peter Roy. Frank Littlewood is the guy behind Alf in 'Till Death...'.

        • I suspect 'I Thank a Fool' (1962) has been covered because Fred Woods credit is at IMDb, i'll be brief with the summary then.
          Christine Allison a doctor is charged and convicted of manslaughter, she ended her partners life at his request, he was in severe pain suffering a terminal illness (probably cancer but it did not mention the word), on release she struggles to get work until an offer arrives from someone who wants her to look after his mentally ill wife. The offer comes from Stephen Dane (Peter Finch) the Barrister who prosecuted her, reluctant at first, she agrees, his wife Liane (Diane Cilento) thinks her father Captain Ferris (Cyril Cusack) is dead, Christine takes her to see him in Ireland, this does not go well and Liane runs away, unfortunately she falls, taken to the local inn the Doctor (Richard Leech) gives Christine some sleeping pills to sedate Liane telling her to give her two. The following morning Liane is found dead from an overdose, the bottle mysteriously having disappeared from Christine's bedroom. At the inquest suspicion is cast on Christine as her history is revealed, Captain Ferris goads her while looking at his pocket watch, she remembers it being in Liane's possesion the night before, he panics and alerts police attention, he leans against a dodgy fence which collapses and he falls to his doom.

          • Thanks for that, philly. And I'm not sure I Thank a Fool has been done before, as there's loads of names in it I hadn't noted down previously. Not nearly so many though who are Comin' thro' the Rye in 1947:

            Molly Weir gets a credit but no role attribution. As well as looking twee here, she also does some jarring narration throughout parts of the film

            At Kirkton Jean's Tavern, singing along with Robert Burns, top right hand of the table doing a Peter Hawkins lookalike could well be the film's Associate Producer and Director Walter C. Mycroft

            And as Molly continues to twee and Trefor Jones continues to trill, that looks rather like the young Old Codger on the right.

              John Dunbar seems to be channelling his inner Norman Evans in that photo. Over my Porters broom!

              • Did I miss something? Is the artist formerly known as Peter Rendell now Hubert Hill or do they just look exactly the same?

                Comment


                • dissolute the mis-identification of Peter Rendell was discussed at the old forum, i first raised questions when i saw him as 'Hubert Hill' in Spotlight.

                  Further note on 'I Thank a Fool'
                  IMDb has Judith Furse as a warden, she isn't in the film, Christine is seen entering the prison in the Black Moria and the next scene she is leaving by foot after 18 months, possibly a deleted scene set in the prison?

                  • Movie Dude has already carried out Operation Amsterdam (1959), so not too many to add, especially as the big scenes were filmed in Holland with locals in attendance, but the Pinewood sequences yield:

                    And what is certainly George Hilsdon and Jack Hetherington dealing diamonds, along with the beard of Carl Jaffé and the big ears of Oscar Quitak. IMDb includes Karel Stepanek as one of the uncredited diamond merchants, but I didn't see him, and it's maybe a misidentification of Carl, whose grandson I hope will be back with us.

                    • More dishing out of diamonds:

                      Comes courtesy of John Wilder, with a miserable-looking Alexander Knox in the background, and that's maybe because he never gets out of a dirty old mac in the entire 104 minutes of the film

                      Resistance is Dutch, including Eva Bartok, Peter Swanwick and Ernest Fennemore, joined by another mac-lover, the blurry Tony Britton

                      And more Dutch defiance from Cyril Kent, as Alex descends to the lower floor gents' department to try on some new coats, as the film gives him not else much to do.

                      Tim Turner appears as a Dutch lieutenant wearing an amazingly-tall hat. However, he also dubs the voice of the British Intelligence officer at the beginning of the film who sends the lads on their mission
