Here are a few more, however:


    Gazing into one another's eyes are David Knight and Margo Lorenz in a cringing romance story, but if we gaze over the rope into Britain, I think we can see the head waiter is George Roderick


    A challenge for any cabin crew, as it looks like they've got that deadly duo Muriel Greenslade and Mabel Etherington on this flight. At least Marie Lohr has conked out, much to Esma Cannon's contempt. No wonder Captain James Robertson Justice turns back


    Arrival in Cairo and Eunice Gayson's a welcome sight. Not quite so Charlie Price at the table beside her


    Anthony Steel's waiting for his date, but it's not Aileen Lewis, who has just imperiously arrived and is being shown to her table


    While Harold Kasket tries to interest Tony in some postcards, they don't see Emil Stemmler arriving behind them; for once he's a customer and not the waiter or barman.
    Moviedude has a pic of Victor Harrington in this one Gerald, any sign of the great man in your copy?

    Yes, he's a BOAC passenger seen a couple of times, but as Victor's on MovieDude's site, I haven't included him here.

    "The Spoilt Ones" are discovered by the boys in blue in SOFTLY SOFTLY TASK FORCE. And we can discover:


    Derek Martin as a patrolman about to give the nod to Susan Tebbs


    Dido Plumb as a punter hanging about the betting shop


    And George Hilsdon as a bookie checking if his contract allows him to keep the bets.

    Trying to use the brain machine on The Brain Machine (1954) and:


    The young boxer at the back may be Frank Maher


    The hatless card player in the middle may be Reed de Rouen


    And the policeman second left is Harold Sanderson. The nose is Russell Napier's.

    Reed de Rouen, yes. Easily recogniseable. Do you have a close-up of Susan Tebbs, Gerald? I remember her from The Portrait of a Lady.

    An earlier role for Derek Martin, as a 'TA (Territorial Army) Soldier' in Adam Adamant Lives! - D for Destruction (1966):

    Here is Susan Tebbs for you, cornershop. She's very good as instinctive detective Donald in SOFTLY SOFTLY TASK FORCE:


    This is from the title sequence for "To Protect the Innocent . . ."; usually the individual main titles show the regulars who are appearing in that week's episode, but Susan isn't in this one.

    An early Christmas in Thamesford as the rozzers in SOFTLY SOFTLY TASK FORCE have to attend a carol concert at the local clink in "To Protect the Innocent . . .":


    Barlow (Stratford Johns) and Jackson (David Allister) get stuck into "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" and cheery Santa-like Walter Goodman warbles behind them. Now look at that lady in the big brown hat in the far background . . . yes, it's Aileen Lewis, but . . .


    . . . by the time she has a Brush with Barlow (and the prison governor Edward Jewesbury), she's changed her hat. In fact, in the earlier film sequences, she's in the second hat and sitting on the same row as Barlow and Jackson by the time the concert ends


    Anyway, talking of hats, Betty Huntley-Wright has a corker on here and just squeezing in between her and Barlow is a grinning Pearl Walters


    Not grinning at all though is robber Peter Diamond, who has the cosh but wants the cash. A fight ensues (Peter is credited only as "Fight Arranger") between him and David Lloyd Meredith and Barlow and Donald Burton, who's visible in the background here.

    During a briefing scene, Keith Ashley and Patrick Milner turn up again. Keith's back in his flasher's mac too.

    Good morning, Gerald. I remember you pointing out another continuity error in The 39 Steps (Kenneth More version) earlier in the thread. Regarding hats, the one that springs to mind is the famous scene in Carry On Camping where Barbara Windsor's bra pops off during an exercise routine. Hattie Jacques is seen with and without her hat in one or two shots.

    Thanks for that rare image of Susan Tebbs. I'll post one from The Portrait of a Lady at the 'Actors Compendium' thread soon to show how she looked in period costume. In the meantime, a close-up of Peter Wyngarde as Jason King in Variations on a Theme (1971). In the background are Harold Coyne and surely Andrew Andreas as the Waiter (confirmed in the second screencap?):




    On Peter Wyngarde's left, in the orange dress, is Polish actress Magda Konopka:

    There are few pickings in The Shiralee (1957) mainly because most of it is filmed on location in Australia with only the interiors shot at MGM British, and those do not have many performers in them. Even Vincent Ball and Chips Rafferty aren't in this one! In this bar scene, however:


    Rosemary Harris is looking for Peter Finch. I'm not sure who the drunk is, but the barman is apparently Frank Leighton (but see below). And peeping round the pillar is Jim Tyson


    Ah, there's a smilin' Pete. And beside him, a smilin' Jack Sharp

    Earlier in the film, Bill Kerr pops up, though IMDB doesn't know what role to attribute to him (see below again):

    Here he is (with Dana Wilson and Pete) as the Golden Crust Bakery Shopkeeper.

    The most curious thing about the film - apart from the awful Tommy Steele song before the thing starts - is the bizarre cast listing at the end. After the main performers are listed with their roles, we get an "also" tab and then an alphabetical list of more of the cast, but shown in such a way to give the impression that half of this list is comprised of role names and the other half the actors who played them, instead of them all of them being cast members, e.g. the recently late "Bruce Beeby . . . FRED GODDARD" and "Edward Devereaux (sic) . . . . . . HENRY MURDOCH". The list is rounded off by a reversion to one final correct item: "Half-Caste Girl . . . . . . CHIN YU". Bonkers, cobbers!

    Probably because of this mess, IMDB, trying to sort out the list, gets for example Mr. Devereaux down as playing the role of Christy, whereas that role is played by a sturdy Wolf Morris type and good old Ed is really "Man in Truck". Something for their Crazy Credits section, perhaps.

    It's now New Year's Eve for the lads at SOFTLY SOFTLY TASK FORCE; it's not just "Any Other Night" and down the pubs:


    P.C. Snow (Terence Rigby) is ready to crawl to the next hostelry, but Cy Town on the right looks happy enough where he is


    Chief Super Barlow (Stratford Johns) is on the blower getting the lowdown on Terence Conoley's rug. Walter Gotell hasn't got one and Basil Dignam doesn't need one


    The next page of the script arrives, courtesy of Tommy Winward.

    Appropriately enough, the episode was transmitted the day after the night before, i.e. on 01.01.1970.

    The Big Money (1958) isn't a big winner on the laughter front, but it's a big source on the cast front:


    The Reverend Robert Helpmann should look out for suspicious Ian Carmichael-like characters at Victoria Station. Hal Osmond is on porter duty


    When Bob buys his ticket, the seller looks awfully like a hatless Harry Phipps


    The Rev. possibly isn't all he might seem and as he enters the dodgy printer's shop, Vic Chapman sings "pass me by"


    The dodgy looks very like Andreas Malandrinos, but this is the only shot of we get of him in the film


    Religious bedfellows, namely Daniel (Thomas Gallagher) and dimwit Ronan O'Casey


    Ian heads for his smokes and behind the till is tobacconist Peter Rendall


    He then goes to get that amazing quiff combed and behind the chair is barber John Payne. John can be seen later in scenes set at Ascot.

    Ian then encounters Ian at the counter:


    In other words, Ian Wilson and Ian Carmichael playing post offices, with Frank Maher behind them, heading off


    Then it's off to the flicks and having a cuddle on the back row is Harold Coyne. He can also be seen later as a Grand Hotel porter


    Also at the pictures, a picture in pink, is Aileen Lewis


    And as Ian tries to get out before the national anthem is played, we can just see Robert Gregory on the right (having a smoke)


    Change of scene to a posh nightclub and the waiter in front of the doors here is Emil Stemmler


    A number of our friends are here. As well as Ian and Belinda Lee, there's Fred Machon on the left


    Plus Lola Morice on the left and Jack Armstrong on the right.

    It's all change for Ian and popping his head up in the left background is John More


    The annoyed diner on the left seems to be Jack Manderville


    And there's more waiter service in the imposing shape of Paddy Smith


    Maybe it's best to stick with the local and joining Ian and Belinda are George Coulouris and a speechless and stuntless Peter Brace


    Now for that visit to Ascot. George Shock's bookie on the right is Jack Sharp


    David Hutcheson as Mr. Ferris gives Belinda a tip and Pat Halpin marches past them looking lit a tit


    Hello, George Hilsdon! It wouldn't be a good day at the races without old George being there. Also in these scenes besides John Payne is Jack Armstrong and also possibly:


    Is that Muriel Greenslade in the pearls?

    Before we gallop away from Ascot, another bookie we find is Neil Wilson. The runners' list is interesting reading as "D Lovell" is given as the owner of "Uvula", the trainers being "Swallow" and "Saliva". The film's camera operator is Dudley Lovell


    Time to enter the Grand Hotel and the grand receptionist is Leslie Phillips. His pal George is John Wilder


    Heading across the lobby, there's Austin Cooper propping up his young lady


    While slumming it back down the pub is Jack Dearlove, propping up the bar on the left


    Oh, now the police arrive (at Ferdy Mayne's fur salon) and the embodiment of order is P.C. Joe Wadham


    And Belinda cannot be dismisseth without the long arm of detective Cyril Chamberlain and sergeant George Curtis.

    Great spotting! Also Movie Dude's Unknown Male 101 just behind Ian's head. Was George Hilsdon a bookie in civilian life? He certainly plays them enough, and seems to know the right gestures!

    There are a number of MovieDude's favourites in the film, for example Unknown male 48 who is in the nightclub scenes too.

    The Bofors Gun

    The late Barry Jackson with Hein Viljoen on the left. Fellow on the right looks familiar ...
    and appears to manifest himself behind the piano in the same scene

    Some of the tourist on the lookout for The Headless Ghost (1959):


    On the back row, Peter Evans plus "stars" David Rose, Liliane Sottane and Richard Lyon
    On the middle row, Arnold Schulkes
    On the front row (second right) John Serret


    Getting off the coach - she's had enough - is Mabel Etherington.

    In 1959, it was The Night We Dropped a Clanger. Hopefully, none are dropped here:


    These boxing RAF lads are stunned by the announcement over the loudspeaker. Stunned right looks like Billy Cornelius



    The Group Captain stunned centre appears to be Jack Armstrong. The wing commanders flanking him are Arnold Bell and David Williams


    Extremely stunned is Reg Thomason following an encounter with Brian Rix. I wonder why . . . ?


    . . . it's because Reg doesn't like it up him. Leo Franklyn joins the stunned ones


    Onto a nightclub and Fred Machon sadly can't be stunned as he's sitting behind the buxom lady


    But something has caught the eye of Lieutenant-Commander Robert Gregory. The chap on the right may be John Langham


    Harry Van Engel is behind Roland Bartrop and Wing Commander Rix here, plus there's Peter Evans' "brother" enjoying himself on the left


    When William Hartnell gets colours (sic) in his cheeks , at the ready to help out are familiar but unknown extra on the left and Eddie Boyce on the right


    And as a V1 is readied for an flight to England and General Paul Bogdan and commandant Victor Beaumont have a chat the beret in the middle belongs to Gerry Judge.

    "The Aggro Boy" is the object of detection for the boys in blue and plainclothes in SOFTLY SOFTLY TASK FORCE before, during and after a football match. For our own detection:


    Firstly one of our unknowns, who has been inspecting the pitch. He's wearing a BLUE PETER badge In these early scenes, I thought one of our other unknowns, "The Old Codger", was playing a burger van man, but it's most likely not him


    Delivering the brochures is Walter Henry, who can be glimpsed later as a football fan attending the match


    Pre-match laughter for David Lloyd Meredith and Ronald Gough when Frank Windsor cracks a funny


    Usually in police unform, but here sporting a St. John's Ambulance one is Patrick Milner, dealing with a cracked head


    And cracking this spot of potential trouble is Terence Rigby with P.C. Bernard Barnsley in support


    Let's get tanked up before the match. Jill Goldston looks a bit the worse for wear already and it's Lola Morice pulling the pints


    Ronald Gough is back, but probably playing his policeman now undercover, or under raincoat anyway, in the Two Bells. Under the hat in the centre is Terence Conoley and presumably his wild wig


    More footie fans: Jim Tyson and his twin (in other words, Jim pops up in the very next scene minus his cap and in a different coat)


    And the blond one here is David Seaforth, his hair somewhat longer than when he was in DAD'S ARMY.
