    Well, to continue The Victor Harrington Show . . .


    Here he is as one of the board of directors of National TV in Make Mine a Million (1958). The Asst. Director General is Richard Caldicott and the DG himself is Clive Morton, perhaps understandably stressed out due to the antics of Arthur Askey


    Arthur's antics are rife as he's a make-up man and in the background, checking the script but making it up as they go along, are Gerry Judge and Jim Brady


    Arthur's never one to get far out of camera range, much to the chagrin of cameraman Jack (Bernard Cribbins) and floor manager Martin Lyder


    Sid James has a product that no lady can do without, but this lady is happy to be without: Peggy Ann Clifford. cornershop, there's our old codger in the background and in fact in the reverse shot of this scene, he's there too, playing another character!


    Taken to the cleaners now, with Joan Hurley as the large lady in dots, Sally Barnes as Sally and Arthur as Arthur


    Heading for the DG's palace, Arthur is confronted with Tom Gill as Mr. Langtree and John Wilder as the butler


    Stock footage of an evening theatre event, I think, but blimey, let's eye-spy at night as it's Patrick Moore in the middle.

    More millions to make:


    Security at the theatre in the person of Eddie Powell on the left, I think


    Police in the persons of Edwin Richfield as Bradley and, I believe, Ian Colin as the uniformed officer. They're not too keen on ballet


    These audience members are, but their image has been reversed as director Lance Comfort hadn't filmed them the right way round. Reversed in the front row is Richard Shaw and in the back row, Cyril Chamberlain's po-faced cousin


    Bandit time and the driver is Sam Kydd, his boss Max, Bruno Barnabe


    The police are back, and this one I think is Leon Eagles


    The National Radio conveniently explains the plot to all who will listen, courtesy of Bernard Hunter


    And when the coppers close in, with Inspector James (Bruce Seton) we can see driver Joe Wadham and P.C. Nigel Lambert. Let's hope the film made millions.

    Back to The Two-Headed Spy and although IMDb has "Kenneth Earl" down as the British soldier . . .


    . . . unless Kenneth's his twin, I think this is really our old chum Clifford Earl.

    Nigel Lambert looks less then the youthful 14 that Imbd has him when this film was made. I remember him in Scream and Scream Again from 1969 and thinking he must be older than 25..

    Yes, Nigel was in some Scotland Yard films too (and he was not a boy, as you would soon find out, as Frankie Howerd might say).

    cornershop has recently shown us some of the inhabitants of John Van Eyssen's casino scene (e.g. Aileen Lewis, Fred Machon, Roger Maxwell, John Tatum, John Wilder) in Make Mine Mink (1960), and so here are a few more uncredited faces from that film:


    The deaf hall porter having a doze and in need of a lift looks like he could be Sydney Arnold


    One of the many shifty characters in Shanghai Harry's bar is almost inevitably Jim Brady


    While Terry-Thomas waits for his glamorous moll (Athene Seyler ), P.C. Howard Lang decides to have a quiet word


    The grateful recipients of the gang's swag include these orphans, amongst whom it seems, to the right of the centre, is Mark Mileham


    Police back on the radio and this time it's Jack Stewart on duty


    Interesting shot here as the gent operating the fire hose is the Peter Evans lookalike, and right behind him in the hat is Peter Evans himself


    The next representatives of the law are Bill Baskiville as the driver and Peter Vaughan as the sergeant


    And our final lawful reps are Terry-Thomas (doing an IPO tho) and guarding the door (unsuccessfully), Neil Wilson.

    Incidental comments:
    Joan Heal plays Sydney Tafler's nagging wife Mrs. Spanager, but her shrill tones sound very like she's dubbed by Joan Sims.

    IMDb lists May Hallatt as playing "Old Mrs. Spanager", but in fact she plays Joan's mum so it's unlikely she's called Mrs. Spanager.

    IMDb lists Colin Gordon in the uncredited cast, but he's nowhere to be seen although telephones do feature in the film.

    IMDb lists Ron Moody as playing "Jelks", but I could see no sign of him.

    IMDb lists Gordon Philpott as playing "Wilkins", but although I don't know Mr. Philpott, I wonder if they mean Gordon Philliott. In any event, I couldn't find Gordon in the film either.

    I still think 'Claire Golding' should be Claire Gordon in IMDb's cast list, Gerald. It can't be coincidence that the character is named Ruby Golding, or that it's the only credit in the former's entry. One of us will have to return to the scene to make sure. I recognised Neil Wilson (who had an uncredited role as a bus passenger in Alfie if you remember) and Howard Lang when I watched the film but missed the diminutive Sydney Arnold. What scene was that?

    I'm very confident that the City Gent behind Jacqueline Pearce in this Airport scene from Man in a Suitcase - Somebody
    Loses, Somebody ... Wins?
    (filmed April 1967) is George McGrath, the man you mistook for the cricketer in The Prisoner:



    A reminder of two of his other appearances:

    I'm sure you are right about Claire Gordon, cornershop. The possible Sydney Arnold sighting is near the beginning of the film when they check to see if the coast is clear before they return Joan Heal's wrap.

    IIRC, the original suggestion that the cricketer in THE PRISONER, etc. was George McGrath came from a DANGER MAN or THE PRISONER website; Moor Larkin will probably know moor about that A suitable candidate as George was then sought from The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll in which he was definitely known to be an extra.

    Carrying on the theme of millions, here are some screencaps provided by Scott Palmer from The Millionairess (1960):


    Ned Lynch second from the left in the line-up behind the desk


    Tony Mendleson far left. Like the hat, Sophia!


    Third from left in this line-up, John Tatum, looking as delighted with life as usual.

    If and when Photobucket decides to function properly, I'll try and post a couple more.

    In Richard Lester's post apocalyptic surreal comedy The Bed Sitting Room (1967) all 22 survivors are credited although Cecil Chang just as "Chinaman" he is named as "Mao Tse-Tung" in the film. The only extras appear in two flashback scenes, the first outside no. 10 Downing Street where several journalists jostle to interview the Prime Minister (Bill Wallis) amongst them is Otto Friese.

    Wondering why Diana Dors would commit murder in the opening scene of the brilliant Yield to the Night (1956) is a rather young Charles Rayford.



    And cutting a rug at the party where Diana meets Michael Craig is an equally young-looking Pat Ryan (far left).

    For the latest voyage into the depths of THE HUMAN JUNGLE, the episode title is quite dangerous:


    Hurrying to avoid Richard Johnson being clobbered by more big letters is Emil Stemmler and possibly George Hilsdon. Emil is busy on this episode, as earlier he's in the crowd at Silverstone sporting a beret, and later I think may also be seen as a doctor and a hospital receptionist


    The mechanic in remarkably white overalls is Walter Sparrow and the unhappy bosses are Andrew Keir and Robert Beatty. With Richard Johnson also in this episode, and appearing with Beatty, we get two Bulldog Drummonds for the price of one


    The legs belong to Raymond Young, the mouth to Richard Johnson and the white cap and shades to Reg Thomason (who is also in Emil's beret appearance earlier).

    I watched an episode of The Human Jungle myself last night, Time Check. A memorable performance from 'burglar' Melvyn Hayes but there were a couple of Actors I Didn't Recognise Until I Saw the Credits: a dark-haired (and slimmer) Mitzi Rogers, as his girlfriend, and a beardless Gerald James, the detective on the case.

    Fred Davi(e)s

    In the Undermind episode Intent to Destroy (1965), Fred is a Security Officer at the ABC Studios, in Teddington, who
    prevents Peter Barkworth & Rosemary Nicols (but not Jeremy Wilkin) from gatecrashing The Eamonn Andrews Show!:



    Lally Bowers has presented the host with a box of cigars, not realising they contain a bomb - planted by Ewan Hooper.

    A box of exploding cigars is the sort of thing you might expect to be made in Eric Sykes' 'joke shop' factory, in sitcom
    Curry and Chips. I believe the Workman second to the right is the same Fred Davis (without the E on this occasion):



    The main actors in this scene from Episode 3 (which also included my beloved Petra Markham by the way) are Geoffrey Hughes,
    Kenny Lynch and Norman Rossington. Hopefully someone will confirm that the balding Workman is Doctor Who star Bill Burridge:



    As Quill in the episode Fury from the Deep (1968).

    Like Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em, Curry and Chips is proving really useful in helping me to identify some Doctor Who extras.

    Both Bill Burridge and Fred Davies/Davis appeared uncredited as extras in DOCTOR WHO several times.

    Still on a WHO connection:


    Here we have John Bailey plus David J. Grahame, I think, as one of his framers, plus John Barrie of course as SERGEANT CORK in "The Case of the French Mademoiselle". The connection is that both Bailey and Grahame appeared more than once in the series and Bailey, here as Victorian antique dealer Eustace Barrington, played Victorian antique dealer Edward Waterfield in the same year's almost totally-lost "The Evil of the Daleks". Another curious link is that Cork and the Doctor in their respective stories work out Bailey's got a secret hidden chamber by comparing the length of the adjoining room.

    In Stolen Face, among the patrons at the jazz club Lizabeth Scott (with Mary Mackenzie's voice) drags Paul Henreid to is Jack Arrow



    When Scott is arrested for shoplifting, passing by appears to be Joe Wadham



    Also seen in the jazz club is John Lynn, who is seen to better effect here as one of the revelers destroying Henreid's flat

    And I realized long after I posted that it's not Joe Wadham, but another unknown I keep seeing everywhere, but who we don't know by name yet (Movie Dude, I think he's your Unknown Male #82)

    Too many faces!

    The hands on the steering wheel of the (unmarked) police car - they must've forgotten to add the sign to the engine grill: the attachments are there though - in The Hand (1960):


    As expected, P.C. Joe Wadham. The colleague with him is one of the authors of the piece, Tony Hilton. I wonder if Joe is pointing out to him that having the bells clanging all the time isn't a good way to surprise a felon in the act?
