Meanwhile, just in case it's not Ted in the above Dracula epic, here he definitely is in Dracula (1979):

    I've been looking at all the photos of "Ted Carroll" on both Movie Dude's site and Aveleyman, and I was really thinking that the familiar extra of the 1950s-1960s we have labeled Ted is not the Ted Carroll of the Broken Nose (and cauliflower ear). I was assuming that he was a boxer, and would have thought his injuries would have happened much earlier than 1971 (when I first see the break). Then I found this news clipping, which might help explain things. I guess a bad scrum could really alter your appearance! The article also gives a little insight into what he did off-camera, too.



    Also found this little bit, a post on an article about "the great disappeared pubs of old central Leeds":

    "I had to do a shift each week and the guys that were there everyday getting plastered were so funny,the landlord Ted Carroll was an extra for television,as he had a crooked nose from being a rugby player,he was truly a character his wife Beryl was a bit of a snob! I think she hated the pub,as it wasn’t fancy enough for her,we had the Leeds playhouse actors in a lot and the ones who went on to be famous like Richard Beckinsale,who sadly died very young but starred in the sitcom Porridge would still visit, he was lovely, I had such a crush on him, Ted moved out the Hyde pub and was at the railway pub in Ilkley,his wife was well pleased!"

    Also found this photo which might help decide if the two Mr. Carrolls are one and the same. Unfortunately low-resolution, though. The original caption states: "Eric Batten seen beating Ted Carroll of Hunslet to score in Northern's 14-7 win in the 1948 Challenge Cup semi at Headingley in front of 38,125."

    That 1947 pic of Ted Carroll has convinced me that the two Teds are different, he still has look of the 70's (twisted schnozz Ted).
    He has at least 40 credited appearances but maybe over 100 as he had a stint as a regular in Emmerdale Farm as 'Kenny' between 1973 and 1975.

    Broken Ted's appearances seem to end as Twisted Ted's start. One maybe nosed the other one out . . . ?

    "Why They Killed Nolan" is the question MAN IN A SUITCASE has to answer. The other question is why Sam Kydd gets top guest star billing, whereas the main guest of the episode, Griffith Jones, is relegated to the end titles. To assist in getting to the solution:


    He may be a blur in grey suit, but it's Victor Harrington on the prowl. The picture in orange dress is sadly unknown


    Another view of grey Victor, plus it's Sergeant Charlie Price leading the charge. The other male onlooker is Fred Peck


    cornershop previously posted a similar screencap of this sequence, where Inspector Russell Napier looks through McGill's Artifacts in a Suitcase as P.C. Guy Standeven takes notes. Wait till Russ gets to the stockings. Shortly after, Norman Hartley arrives, credited as "P.C. Martin" though he wears sergeant's stripes.

    When MAN IN A SUITCASE investigates "The Boston Square", we find it's really "The Britmovie Polygon", as there are many faces to see in this one:

    First of all, Basil Dignam holds a board meeting and he has Peter Evans on his left and confusingly, Peter's lookalike on his right:

    It looks like Ned Hood the middle of the right hand directors too

    Here's a better one of Peter and Basil:


    Time to jet off again to Costa Pinewood:

    Vincent Ball heads through passport control with Guy Standeven at the desk and among his fellow passengers are Jeff Silk and a partially-obscured Harold Coyne. Again confusingly, Jeff turns up again near the end of the episode and this time, he's playing the passport official


    Richard Bradford soon has to Find The Ball and he enlists the help of Greek fisherman Jim Brady


    Meanwhile, in the local bar Rex Everhart tries to avoid looking at Peter Arne's shirt. Michael Dempsey dancing in the right background, looks positively Stan Laurelian


    I wonder if the barman is Austin Cooper?


    Vincent's not having much truck with that shirt either and is that Josie Grant pouting in the background?


    And Tony Castleton is pushing past Vince and Rex quickly so he doesn't have to look at it. Also briefly in the bar scene is the extra formerly known as Andy Alston. Tony gets another go too as he can be spotted later on as a hotel guest.

    When McGill finally meets up with Vincent, they encounter a Greek fisherman played by Harry Phipps wearing another in his line of natty hats with turned-up brims


    The first of Peter Arne's chief henchmen is Marco as portrayed by Peter Brace; Peter looks quite pleased he's knocked McG in the drink. Last time they had a fight, Peter got off worse and that's even with McG having a fag in his mouth throughout the spat


    I think Health and Safety might have something to say about the staircase in McGill's hotel. Something we might say to the plumper of the two ladies at the reception desk is "hello, Lola Morice"


    Finally, Peter and his second chief henchman, Larry Taylor, have lots to be cheery about. Peter's just ditched his shirt in the Med.

    Dave, you may be glad to know that your old pal Joe the waiter turns up in that episode of MAN IN A SUITCASE too.

    The belief for MAN IN A SUITCASE this time is that "Somebody Loses Somebody . . . Wins?", so hopefully we will win by seeing a number of familiar faces:


    And a very familiar one here: Harry Fielder as a stern East German police officer. Peter Hager is the milder-looking American in the fedora. This may be an appearance you've not got on your list, Aitch?


    Paul Hansard interests Richard Bradford in his brochure. Fred Peck is more interested in joining the table in the background and having coffee. Fred's back later on in the episode as a guest at Karl Braun's reception


    Keeping an eye on proceedings is this East German agent who must surely be Dinny Powell


    He may note that Aileen Lewis is checking out with receptionist Wendy Hall with a man who is not her husband . . .


    . . . though up Lewis Alexander pops a few minutes later down the Prince Onegin bar, where McGill meets Jacqueline Pearce


    And where we can meet Martin Lyder in the background and waiter Emil Stemmler. Martin too gets another appearance briefly in the bierstube scene


    First, though, we go a-concerting and it looks like Lola Morice between Jackie and Bobby


    And now's it's Ned Hood between them


    The orchestra members are on the way out. One of them is THE PRISONER meanie and the other is cheery chubby Jimmy Charters


    Now to the beer and talking of chubby, Jim Tyson is among the customers, although he doesn't look very cheery


    And the waiter here is Charles Rayford, showing dahhhling Jacs and Bob to their table.

    Aitch is good at dodgy foreigners. Here he as a Dutch porn smuggler in the opening episode of Cats Eyes from 1985.

    Glad to see my two favorite waiters (Emil & Joe) still being spotted. In the Doctor at Large episode "You Make Me Feel So Young", Barry Evans' sad little car is stripped by two car thieves. The one on the left is Sonny Caldinez; anyone recognize the nattily dressed one on the right?

    In the Man in the Suitcase cap with Charles Rayford the girl on the right in pink could be Shireen Folkard.

    I'll see if there are any better shots of that girl, philly. Let's hope she is Shireen Folkard!

    Weekend Sightings

    Uncertain about both.

    In the Scotland Yard film Fatal Journey (1954), a policeman is questioning locals. Is this one a young Roddy McMillan?:




    And could that be Philip Lowrie on the left in the Armchair Theatre play Lena, O My Lena? This was made in 1960 and
    the beginning of Coronation Street was still a few months away. The guitar man does look like Rolf Harris but he isn't:



    I guess they're supposed to be beatniks. Coincidentally, Philip was in a coffee bar scene in Sapphire the previous year.

    Douglas Fairbanks Jr wartime vehicle State Secret (1950) has our hero escaping the Germans led by Jack Hawkins, climbing over a mountain with Glynis Johns he encounters trouble in the shape of a very young Peter Vaughan (is this his earliest credit ?). In an earlier scene Jeff Silk 'passes by' in the street , in the cinema behind Douglas is young thinner Bill Reed. One of Jack Hawkins German subordinates is Ferdy Mayne.
