    What other meaning has it ever had? I've only ever known it to mean that you are very pleased

    The third episode of The Saint, The Careful Terrorist: serving Gary Cockrell and Sally Bazely is Emil Stemmler, in an inspired bit of casting...

    That was the first time I noticed Sally Bazely, Dave. Only very rarely does she turn up on DVD so it was great to see her as a guest in Turtle's Progress recently. The first of four actresses to play Georgie Thompson in Father, Dear Father. Gary Cockrell, later to star in cult series The Corridor People, was also a choreographer and I do believe that if it weren't for Gary there would have been no Pan's People. A talented man:

    Emil Stemmler's appearance, as yet another Waiter, in Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush (1967):



    During the scene where Jamie (Barry Evans) first meets Caroline (Angela Scoular).

    Three rare pints of blood are needed to save the life of young Jennifer Tafler (I assume the daughter of Sydney Tafler and the niece of director Lewis Gilbert) in Emergency Call (1952). Syd's in this one, as he was in many of Lewis's films, but also present, though not in the credits:

    Boxing M.C. Pat Hagate announces a bout ". . . and your referee: Mr. Ernie Rice . . .":
    And indeed, up pops Ernie Rice in his element, elbows going like the clappers. So he's playing "himself" (although he can be spotted in an earlier scene as a trainer for Boy Booth, seen above too played by the late Fred (Nosher) Powell. His opponent is Freddie Mills, billed as "Former Light Heavyweight Champion of the World")

    Eric Davies and Sidney James watch anxiously by the ringside, while the male spectator at the back - who does one of those "being in two places at the same time" appearances - is Pat Ryan

    Here's a formidible trio. Eric Pohlmann as Flash Harry (indeed, no George Cole in sight) with two of his "boys", Jim Brady and Jack Arrow. Jack can be seen earlier too as a boxer getting ready for a fight

    Not so clear, but I think we have here Pat Hagan in the second of his two appearances as a policeman at Scotland Yard.

    Going on a Blind Date (1959), Hardy Kruger encounters:

    John Wilder taking photographs for the police

    Edward Cast, I think, doing a "hello ducky" as a policeman at the airport

    At this point, made up to look older, David Markham lands as Sir Howard Fenton

    Herr Kruger sucks the door, Inspector Stanley Baker is sympathetic and Michael Collins as the chauffeur wonders if he's going to have to polish it again

    IMDb found Robert Crewdson, but not his role, so here he is as a police sergeant. Hardy, Stan and Micheline Presle are suitably relieved

    On the way out, Micheline now looks deflated, and there's that extra as a policewoman we only know as "Lola" so far, courtesy of Michael Stevenson.

    The American title for Clash by Night (1963) is the really more apt Escape by Night, and here are some performers whose names escaped the credits:

    At the dogs, bus driver Arthur Lovegrove is chatted up by crook Stanley Meadows, while his henchman Bill Sawyer looks on

    As we're at the races, it's inevitable that among the punters, between Art and Stan, it's George Hilsdon

    Another henchman, this time one of the drivers, and again inevitably, it's Joe Wadham. Joe pitches up once more near the end of the film as a police driver

    IMDb correctly lists the uncredited William Simons (on the right) as an outside guard, but says the other one is Harvey Hall. Although I see the resemblance, it isn't Harvey but in fact Dan Meaden.

    The call of THE HUMAN JUNGLE beckons and this time we have a "Struggle for a Mind" (of Joan Collins!). Down the Underground:


    There was some discussion ages ago as to whether this helpful young man (who gets to grab a naked Dame Joanie) is Mark Burns or Drewe Henley. I originally plumped for the latter, but now do think it's Mark. Whether he considered Joan was worth plumping for, we'll never know


    And here is Mark in the act of plumping. The observer on the right is Eden Fox, who has the unique ability of being in three places at once in this scene


    The two gentlemen enjoying the view at the top of the stairs are Ned Lynch and Charlie Price


    The hatted one on the left is Pat Gorman. The man in front of him looks pretty creepy


    The small chap behind the overactor in the hat looks like Alan Gibbs


    Therapy time and manipulating the ball is William Dysart (who Andrew Pixley has down as "Unknown" in his booklet)


    That Joanie can't keep out of the Tube. Exiting the lift on the left is Harold Coyne.

    Mister Ten Per Cent (1966) is a Charlie Drake vehicle which generally crashes in the laughter lane. There are some big extra calls in the various theatre scenes (certainly more than ten per cent of the overall cast), so here are a few sightings apart from the fairly well-known one of Mike Reid as a theatre bouncer:


    The site foreman here who tells Charlie to . . . (well, you can imagine) looks very like Roger Avon. Or maybe he's shouting because his apostrophe has dropped off?


    On stage, we seen thespians Una Stubbs and Percy Herbert plus Valerie Leon giving Una a pointed look in more ways than one. That theatre must've been damned cold


    Some of the Bournemouth audience and just below the lady in green is Fred Woods, plus the silver-haired gent is Ned Lynch


    The noisy Bourne-MOUTH belongs to Harry Locke


    Fun at the backstage party and drunkenly involved is Pat Gorman


    Off to Edinburgh (?) now and in the front row, it's Maxwell Craig having a good laugh. Charlie D is not involved


    But he is involved in the potteries and the tolerant foreman appears to be Charles Lamb


    A recipient of the pottery's wares is this stoical Ernie Rice

    That's 5% . . .

    As Charlie takes aim, the bald bloke getting whipped up in the background is Charles Rayford


    Off to London now (or the Elstree backlot) and the chap on the left must be Lewis Alexander (Alex Lewis), who we haven't seen for a while. This is a hopeless pan-and-scan copy of a Techniscope film, so there's no way to determine if Missus is alongside him here


    Charlie is barred from the theatre and, along with Mike Reid (not him on the right, BTW), the "ruffians" employed to ensure this include Yuri Borienko


    Needless to say, Mr. Drake causes mayhem regardless and the stagehand getting it in the middle appears to be Tex Fuller


    Noel Dyson is about to faint because John Tatum sitting next to her is grinning. In fact he smiles too and even shouts (undubbed) "Yes, let him talk!" Move � for you then, John?


    Lots of faces to identify here, apart from Noel Dyson. The man with his finger in his mouth is one of our unknown regulars and along from him, there's "Joe the waiter"


    Some more here, including the bloke on the front row who goes grey soon after being in this film (who can blame him?) and is in loads of things, plus we have Juba Kennerley, Philip Stewart and Victor Harrington, along with our bearded unknown (who is also in the "Edinburgh" audience) and a Reginald Marsh lookalike


    Panning along, it's a better one of Juba, plus Roy Lansford far left. It might be Martin Lyder at the top, but maybe not.

    And that's your 10%.

    For the attention of Philly:



    I am hoping that's Shireen Folkard, who is in the uncredited cast list for the Adam Adamant Lives!
    episode Beauty Is An Ugly Word (1966). If correct then I can add this to her neglected thread later.

    Great work with Mr. Ten Per Cent, Gerald. Is this copy from a Satellite TV broadcast? The colour looks very odd but I love that one of Una Stubbs with Percy Herbert and Valerie Leon (her screen debut, or was that in The Saint?). You keep posting images of Ernie Rice, who I've been unable to recognise for more than a year. That rare close-up will be a great help. I think the front row includes the recently-sighted 'Mr. Carraway':



    Harry Locke played another Heckler in Oh! What a Lovely War, in the scene where Vanessa Redgrave addresses a disrespectful crowd.

    Are you sure that's her though, philly? The other female 'Caf� Valderon Patrons' are Patricia Claire, Patti Bryant, Maureen Roberts, Rita Puffey, Hermione Pardoe and Helen Krevoun. All are seen in the distance. Incidentally, she is credited as Shereen in Andrew Pixley's notes.

    Not 100% cornershop but definately a good likeness to the 1965 Daily Express clip you posted at your Unknown Doll Birds... thread last year.

    cornershop, it's a pretty lousy copy I have of Mister Ten Per Cent, not helped by the fact it's been panned and scanned from a Techniscope print. It's certainly a very early appearance of Valerie Leon: although the film was released in early 1967, it bears a 1966 copyright date, so likely it was filmed that year. And it certainly does look like "Mr. Carraway" there.
    philly, I'm not sure that is Pearl Walters. The dead giveaway is usually her dodgy teeth!

    The Black Knight (1954) is a difficult film to spot anyone in, let alone extras, but here having a chuckle at Alan Ladd's steed along with Laurence Naismith, are I think Bob Simmons (the film's lead stuntman) on the left, and Peter Brace in a proto-Beatles mop next to Naismith.

    Gerald has already well documented 1963's Siege of the Saxons, but there are always new discoveries. Here the knight at left appears to be Martin Lyder and his smiling squire is Pat Ryan.



    And I think Tony Castleton watching the tournament from King Arthur (Mark Dignam)'s royal enclosure. Anyone recognize the Captain Pugwash-looking fellow in the background?

    Standing guard over that blackguard Ronald Lewis is Peter Diamond, who of course did stunt work as well. It sounds like his one line of dialogue may be his own voice for once.



    Gerald has already identified the villager talking to Ronald Lewis as Roland Curram, but passing in the background on the right is that bearded extra we thought was Maitland Moss (sans anachronistic pipe this go-round)
