    Thank you, John. He is indeed tall, bearded and dignified . . . and enjoying a drink in the club house!

    Back to THE ADVENTURES OF THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL and "Something Remembered"; hopefully, these are somebody remembered:


    As philly has said, Otto Friese is quite a regular attendee in this series, and here he is again in all his foppishness, open-mouthed as he spots the return of Maureen Connell as Melanie


    Once we're back in Paris (or the backlot at National Studios at least), Marius Goring, Anthony Newlands and Pat (sic) Troughton are in the crowd, with Wallace Bosco propping up the front row and Ned Lynch propping up the back. Wally appears again later on when he hands over his weapon: it wasn't much use to him at his age anyway


    Esme Percy props up the doorway as a troop of soldiers march by, led by blurry corporal Fred Haggerty.

    There Ain't No Justice it seems in this boxing saga from 1939, which is full of ugly mugs, including these two:


    As Mike Johnson Snr. demonstrates some classic boxing stances to Richard Norris, one of his chums in the background is a 19 or 20 year old Jon Pertwee


    And borrowing Ernie Rice's pipe seems to be a younger (but not as young as Jon) Wallace Bosco.

    It's kind of precipient that you should have said that, Cornershop, because it seems that Walter and Paul died within a few weeks of each other.

    Walter appeared as Mellors in a 1961 London stage production of Lady Chatterley's Lover, and I found that out while looking for some obscure actors who appeared in an obscure British film - one of these actors had a link to the LCL production.

    The IMDB reports Walter's death as occurring on 31/10/2013 in Tasmania, although I can't find a mention anywhere else:

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0114880/

    Certainly his date of birth and full name appear to be correct. Walter arrived in the U.K. in November 1958 - these are his details in the immigration records:




    He'd obviously returned to live in New Zealand by 1978 as he appears as 'Ian Walter Brown' on the electoral roll there for that year - his occupation stated to be actor. By 2007 Walter was living near Deloraine, Tasmania - we can see that he was scheduled to appear in a local festival there that year:

    http://thedwarf.com.au/forum/topic/1...orest-festival

    Civic records also confirm his residence but the property where he lived is currently up for sale. Unfortunately, the circumstantial evidence suggests that the report of his death is probably true.

    Trust me, but despite this lousy shot of him in "Trust a Woman" it's fight arranger Peter Diamond as the copper from SOFTLY SOFTLY TASK FORCE trying to tie down Sean Caffrey:

    I fancy these are some additional names for Young Man's Fancy (1939):


    Duchess Martita Hunt has no compunction to have a go at elderly guest Eliot Makeham


    Her footman on the right here may be Harry Terry


    And this excitable soldier gives Peter Bull another French roll, er role.

    Thanks for the update on Walter Brown, Euryale - albeit a sad one. An eerie coincidence to go with that uncanny resemblance. The death toll gets worse every year. Did you know we lost Eydie Gorme back in August? Poor Steve. I didn't find that out until Brian Matthew mentioned it on his Sounds of the Sixties show recently. Condolences to Walter's family and friends should he miss out on an obituary thread.

    Am I alone in thinking Harold Coyne is the Bus Conductor in The Black Windmill?:

    No, cornershop, for what it's worth, I think it's Harold Coyne too.

    Thanks to both of you for confirming that. Can you give us a closer view of Harold, MovieDude?

    It's "The Elusive Chauvelin" (or Shovelin as Sir Percy calls him) that has the latest elusive credits for THE ADVENTURES OF THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL. The likes of Christopher Lee aren't listed at all and Patrick (full Christian name this time) Troughton is given the role attribution of Lord Anthony Dewhurst previously played by Robert Shaw but is referred to as Tony once and as Andrew (his usual role) twice albeit badly dubbed in. Anyway, some others:


    Marius Goring as Sir Percy, Pat(rick) as Tony/Andrew, Lucie Mannheim as Countess la Valliere and Stanley Van Beers as the Shovel, but with Victor Harrington as a bewigged fop


    Perce and Thea Gregory twist and shout, as does Lola Morice behind them


    Also twisting and shouting as these two loyal French citizens, the one on the right being Steve Donahue


    And I think this is Steve again as a flunky. Old Percy seems to have his nose all fluffy, but it's due to this episode only having been preserved on 16mm.

    Thank you again, MovieDude. Harold has become one of the most recognisable extras during recent viewing (ever since Darling, in October).

    Behind Donald Pleasence in this airport scene from Interpol Calling - The Absent Assassin (1960) is George Holdcroft:



    Is that Eugene Deckers as the uncredited Customs Officer? I'll post a close-up at 'Anyone recognise this actor' after this.

    During The Captive Heart (1946), the following have also been made captive:


    Michael Redgrave and Sam Kydd (playing Grant) who is checking his script and I think we get a very early John Tatum sighting as the P.O.W. in the background, with hand on cheek


    When Redgrave has to face who he isn't he also has to face William Fox.

    Harold Coyne is in this film too, presumably as one of the countless P.O.W.s, but I wasn't able to spot him.

    "The Hermit" in SOFTLY SOFTLY TASK FORCE is a rare non-ethnic role for Andreas Malandrinos, and extras Ronald Nunnery and Frankie Dunn get credited for once. Among those not credited, however:


    Bert Sims as a worried householder


    And when the fuzz arrive on the scene, the one about to jump off is Patrick Milner again, with Ronald Gough right behind him.

    "The Sword of Justice" may have been wielded during THE ADVENTURES OF THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL, but there ain't no justice (as Jimmy Hanley may have said) in the onscreen credits:


    This is the episode where the part of Count Latour is credited to Christopher Steele, but he is most certainly played by Ian Fleming. This scene also features Thea Gregory in her role as Christine, but she is credited as "Theo. Gregory"


    Anthony Newlands briefly appears in his regular role as Lord Richard Hastings, but gets no credit at all. With Marius Goring and Tony is Patrick (but back to "Pat" again in the credits) Troughton, who also provides a voice-over for a French newsheet seller


    Steve Donahue is back as a soldier, somewhat curious about the crafty disguise worn by Shovelin himself, Stanley Van Beers. Steve appears later on, this time as a thug supporting Denis Shaw - generally he needs supporting - who gets a credit, but inevitably as "Dennis Shaw"


    There is a tavern in the town, and Lola Morice is in it, plus an anxious Claire Pollock


    The sergeant is on duty, despite appearances, and Martin Wyldeck is he.

    Chips Rafferty is thankfully in Eureka Stockade (1949), and the bolster up the considerable Australian contingent even further:


    Yelling down Governor Charles Joseph Latrobe (or La Trobe) is John Tate


    And going along the bar, knocking them back are Sydney Loder, Peter Illing, Chipsy and Alexander Cann (who appears to have been an assistant director too), while not knocking is morose Reg Lye, who never looked young.

    In the voice-over department, the opening narrator sounds like David Farrar, the aforesaid governor (played by Charles Tasman) sounds like Michael Hordern on dubbing duty and the sly grog seller (played by John Fernside) sounds very much like Jack Warner using a clipped accent.

    The final episode of SOFTLY SOFTLY TASK FORCE series 1 is "Escort" (tx, and mainly set on, 12.03.1970) and I remember this one vividly from its original (only?) broadcast; it's not a happy one for dog lovers. Anyway, for extra-spotting lovers:


    Detective Superintendent Frank Windsor briefs his troops. Although his hair is parted on the wrong side, is the chubby policeman Derek Chafer?


    Partings irrelevant here. Some common sense from P/W Detective Constable Susan Tebbs, watched over by plainclothes 'tec Bernard Barnsley


    Here's one Aitch seems to have forgotten: Harry Fielder as a startled commuter who's just seen Senator Alan Gifford, bowler-hatted Frank and David Lloyd Meredith and here on the left, Douglas Lambert, disembark at ?? station


    Again not entirely sure about this one: Susan with her tea-cosy hat, Detective Chief Superintendent Stratford Johns on the ramage and Janie Booth on the quiver, with David J. Grahame in the background as the church organist?
