    He's almost breaking into a smile there, Dave! However, a number of 1946 Tatum appearances have been sighted.

    Here's John Tatum brushing past James Mason at a party in The Upturned Glass (1947). I think this is the earliest sighting of the unsmiling one?

    And Vic Hagan walks past John Hewer and Joan Rodney in the local milk bar.

    When we get to 1588, it's the turn of Nan Kearns and Jack May centre and centre right to put on the dodgy costumes

    Then in 1804, as Constance Cummings dances with Morland Graham, although the still image is not a great one, back right has all the attributes of being Jack Mandeville

    I think the 1918 schoolmistress is Andrea Troubridge again, while the postman bringing glad tidings (for once) appears to be a youthful-ish Leonard Sharp

    Finally, when there are celebrations down The King's Head, the man with the bald one is Frank Tickle.

    IMDb has A. E. Matthews, Kynaston Reeves and Norman Wooland in its uncredited cast list, but no sign of them, and certainly no sign of American actor Robert Warwick also listed there.

    Vi Kaley in black on the left sheltering from an air raid. She's previously been sighted watching John Clements wrestle Martin Walker in 1086, so she seems to be wearing quite well. Dennis Wyndham is in background centre and I think the lady in headscarf opposite Vi is Andrea Troubridge

    Also in 1086 is Martin's scribe David Keir in a fetching wig

    And the herald in a crimped one bringing bad news to John, Frank Pettingell and Dennis and their fellow 1086 serfs is John Warwick. The boy in an equally delightful bit of headwear is the credited Roddy McDowall.

    After suffering through the Alphabet Murders, last night, do you Philly or Gerald have a definitive list of extras for this film?
    I saw Gerald's revisit in May, but couldn't find anything from the old forum.
    I did see, Emil Stemmler, John Tatum, George Hilsdon, Pauline Chamberlain and Victor Harrington amongst the regulars though.
    Finally caught up on this
    I am pretty certain that it isn't Pauline Chamberlain, i didn't see Arthur Goodman in the casino may have missed him though.

    Attributions
    Vincent Harding is the Bowling Alley Attendant
    Del Baker is a Restaurant Patron

    Passerby - Alicia Armstong, John Cam, Keith Denny
    Restaurant Customer - Fred Berman, Sheila Aza
    Policeman - Donald Campbell, Richard Duke, John Bailey, Jimmy Millar, Chris Webb
    Casino Customers - Reg Cranfield, Reggie de Beer, Sadie Slade, Roy Everson
    Waiter (Casino) - Ray Marioni
    Casino Doorman - Lee Fenton

    The detective in the Cage on the Train i think was Terence Mountain
    The water stunt for Anita Ekberg was probably executed by Connie Tilton, she specialised in Water Stunts and you could spot her long dark hair on the way down The sultry blond near the start of this that approaches the camera and turns and ascends the steps, looked a lot like Julia Foster, I thought she was unlikely to take such a small part after starring in Alfie, unless she filmed this before.
    There are about three minor character actors here, I have forgotten their names, I am poor at remembering them unlike the extras.

    Oh yes, philly, thanks it is. He's playing a prison officer.

    Among those watching are another copper George Hilsdon, Jack Carter and at the back, Maxwell Craig and possibly Alan Harris. Hilda Green is there too, but on this copy I didn't see the previously-sighted Jimmy Charters

    And when Roberts Powell and Stephens go down the local poorhouse, it's Terry Scully they pick up as a better death bet than George Oliver on the left or the credited Tony Caunter.

    The assistant director on this one was our much-missed friend Roger Simons, who doubtless had something to do with engaging familiar extras like these.

    We get a bit of modern day action at the beginning of the Victorian-set The Asphyx (1972):

    Where P.C. Joe Wadham screeches to a halt once again. The copy I have is supposed to be 16x9, but it's a badly pan and scan job, so Joe just gets into frame

    Robert Stephens and Alex Scott hold a crackpot lecture and among the gullible attendees are Anthony Snell on the left and in the middle, the credited Paul Bacon, who's the only one with lines. Anthony can also be sighted in the execution crowd later on . . .

    . . . and also at the meeting are Aidan Harrington and Otto Friese at the front. Charlie Price and Richard Atherton I think have also been spotted in this scene before, but I didn't see them on this copy.

    I would agree with you that it's Dorothea and Redmond, cornershop. Excellent sightings.

    Glad to have helped with another identification, Gerald. The first time I identified Ursula Granville (for
    the 'Extras in Callan' thread) was in an episode of Six Days of Justice, in which she played a Magistrate:

    Sitting next to her is 'Chairman' Hugh Morton ... the Judge in that scene from New Scotland Yard (also 1972)!


    Do you think I was right with these uncredited actors in recent posts?:

    Hello, Gerald. I watched this episode again earlier and recognised two more faces - Ursula
    Granville (also identified by philly) and, behind her, Dad's Army regular George Hancock:
