    • Arthur Riscoe is Public Nuisance No 1 in the 1936 lists, and here he is in full flow:

      I just hope he isn't going to "flow" up on the doorman at the nightclub where he's just got rat-arsed. The doorman on the left is Wally Patch, who experience has taught to keep well back

      Arthur causes mayhem in the Snelling's department store. Testing his braces and waistcoat for snapping is onlooker Syd Crossley, who IMDb has down as "Policeman"

      And when Frances Day makes a suggestive remark about toffee apples to store owner Mr. Snelling (Sebastian Smith) in a film with quite a few double entendres, Ian Selby needs to look round at the camera.

      • The film then leaps off to the south of France, which is somewhere near Beaconsfield:

        Not so hirsute is Wallace Bosco (centre) but he is certainly more alarmed among the elderly Astoria gentlemen who are concerned when they think their sunny holiday with their "nieces" may be on film

        In charge of the blackmail, er, film is the exhausted Peter Haddon, while the cameraman centre looks very like the inexhaustible John Harvey.

            Hmm, difficult to say, philly, looks somewhat chubby-faced to be Janina.

              But there's a spy cell at work: Terry Sartain in the obligatory duffle coat is joined by Martin Lyder and behind in the complimentary trench coat, Stan Simmons

              And there's the top brass at work too: familiar faces, including Ernest Blythe as none other than Air Commodore Whitehead (as opposed to Skinhead).

                It appears to be George Holdcroft behind him quite satisfied with a drink rather than a coat

                Though Tony Spear has elected to wear a more substantial model and is not bothered about a drink at all. At least the previously-sighted Victor Harrington in this scene contents himself with a jacket, a drink and a lady friend

                But his colleague P.C. Colin McKenzie is happy just to stick his considerable nose in the air as Anne Aubrey totally ignores the fracas all around her.

                        Is that the prodigious nose of Reg Thomason protruding from the right?

                          I wondered if it was Reg and his bugle as well Gerald. Sadly this is the only image available, as a second later Reg? is blocked by a reporters furry microphone.
                          The image of the hooter blow up to full size doesn't help much either. Personally I'm not convinced and if it is Reg, he's borrowed Cy Town's bins.

                          • Well, just to confound matters even more, the film is on both Reg's and Cy's lists!

                              I am. Inexplicably, my Recent Uploads page was full of "moved or deleted" images when I logged in. I've just re-uploaded some of them (they're back at the 'Beginning Is Nigh' and 'Paintings in Films' threads) but I'm worried they might disappear again. I notice you're posting screencaps directly from your computer rather than Photobucket. Have you had the same experience?

                              Hopefully you can see this shot, from Episode 2 of Tightrope (1972):



                              A drunk George Waring is at The Red Lion pub. The uniformed man on the right is Steve Ismay.I now doubt that his colleague is Richard Eden but he does look familiar. As for the girl, I wonder if she's Felicity Balfour (an early member of Pan's People who was a party guest in the slightly earlier Public Eye episode Shades of White)?

                              • Personally I've given up on Photobucket these days Cornershop, and always use my own screencaps direct from my computer. Photobucket is so chock full of ads and other rubbish, it's almost impossible to use.
