    Another Stewart Granger film, Footsteps in the Fog (1955), but this time it's of his first missus:

        A coy rendering of Lady Hamilton from the 1941 film of that name:

        Of course, Vivien Leigh plays That Hamilton Woman anything but coy.

          The grim face of unpleasant Henry Davidson (John Paul) who features in a number of episodes of DR. FINLAY'S CASEBOOK, this one "Opportunity and Inclination" (1969). Unfortunately, he just happens to be the father of the girl who the good doctor cannot get out of his mind.

            The less grim face of dear old Raymond Huntley when Only Two Can Play (1961):

            But this effort also hanging on his wall is certainly in the grim catalogue:

              There's quite a dynasty of Brodricks hanging on the wall in Hungry Hill (1947), and here's the best shot we get of the rendition of Wild Johnnie (Dermot Walsh):

              The film's credits obligingly inform us "Portraits by Professor Arthur Pan".

                Laurence Olivier is treated to an almost full-sized vision of Felix Aylmer in The Demi-Paradise (1943):

                With the item below the portrait, this could also be in the model ships thread.

                  And I suppose the portrait is of the younger aeronautic days of Tommy Mayfield as played by John Stride, but I don't find the likeness that incredible.

                    Another one from AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT, this time "The King of Clubs", where there's a rather better likeness of David Swift as the odious Henry Reedburn:
