    Frank has a similar expression in Carry On Cabby:


    I recognise him from your capture but the hats in the others make it difficult to believe it's the same person. And who plays 'Sims', Raymond Young's colleague at the travel agency? Although the emphasis will be on the posters (like those behind the man in the middle), I'd still like to know the identity of these uncredited actors for my next contribution at Posters in TV Shows. It should probably be Films but I prefer to think of them as Scotland Yard 'episodes', being half an hour long.

    I don't think that is Frank Forsyth, cornershop; it looks more like Julian Somers to me.

    Gerald, would you mind having another look at the first 5-10 minutes of Destination Death? The actor in front of the BEA posters is the first to appear in the film, after Edgar Lustgarten's intro. I'm sure that's him (without the hat) in the scene, seconds later, where he and Howard Lang examine the contents of the dead man's luggage shortly afterwards. Is it Frank Forsyth? Definitely not Julian Somers.

    I've had a look at those scenes again, cornershop, and agree it's the same man in the airport and luggage scenes. Not Julian Somers, but not Frank Forsyth either, unfortunately:

    Succumbing to The Feminine Touch:


    John Payne is on the far left, striding out of Guy's Hospital, pretending it is St. Augustine's Hospital. Newton Blick is pretending to be Lofty the porter and Scottish-born Adrienne Corri is pretending to be Irish


    Adrienne and Newton again, plus the back of Belinda Lee (not her best feature), but the grey-haired patient in the background - surely not needing to sneak out for a smoke in 1956? - looks like Ned Lynch

    IMDb has Christopher Rhodes down as "Dr Ted Russell", when the screen credits show him (correctly) as (Dr) Ted Robinson. It also has Mark Daly down as a gardener (never saw him), John Orchard (ditto, unless that's him with John Payne in the first screencap) and John Warren, unless this is John as a porter:


    We see here Richard Leech as "Casualty Doctor" and indeed, Richard really was a qualified medico. Blimey, that's Belinda's back again.

    Thank you for trying, Gerald. He seems more like Leo Genn there - very different from the first time we see him (with the hat).

    I spotted more posters, as well as extras, in H.G. Wells' Invisible Man last night, in the episode Odds Against Death (1959).
    In the casino scenes we can find MovieDude's 'Unknown Male #49', Fred Wood and, next to that croupier's head, Oliver Reed:




    Oliver appeared at the end of the earlier episode The Mink Coat, with Lisa Daniely and 'Invisible Man' Johnny Scripps:



    Enjoying - or pretending to enjoy - puppeteer Hazel Court's performance. Is that Martin Lyder as the second Waiter?

    Although it was apparently first shown in May 1956, I thought it would be appropriate to skip onto "The Christmas Present" which is one of THE ADVENTURES OF THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL. Chauvelin's soldiers are still on duty, though:


    The haughty-looking captain here is Victor Platt, with Arthur Young, Ann Padwick and Amanda Coxell.

    As it's a Christmas episode, there are a lot of children in this one. The majority seem to have their own voices, although Christopher Toyne, who has the most lines, is very obviously dubbed by a woman. All the children are credited, including this young lady we've come across before and she manages all her own lines very well:


    Lesley Dudley as Antoinette.

    Chauvelin's soldiers may still have been on duty, but not the man himself who doesn't appear in this episode. Nevertheless, the dotty credits continue as Stanley Van Beer's given third billing and also Paul Williamson is listed as "Chauvelin's Agent". A snipped scene perhaps?

    Featured heavily is "The Twelve Days of Christmas" unfortunately in a version not composed until 1909. "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen" can also be heard, probably in a 19th century version. To top it all, the Prince Regent turns up in a Santa outfit However, we must be forgiving as it's Christmas, and:

    The Holly and the Ivy (1952) doesn't have a huge Yuletide cast, but here are a couple to add to it:


    The gentleman enquiring why Miss M. Gregory has not taken up her reservation seems to be Hugh Latimer


    Then just as Celia Johnson and John Gregson are getting into church, at the film's abrupt last gasp, there's Jack Armstrong in the congregation.

    Scrooge (1951) is rather lacking in familiar extras, though Ronald Adam does have a wordless bit part as the doctor attending a dying Carol Marsh.


    I am certain, though, that this party guest with Richard Pearson is a young Fanny Carby.


    And I strongly suspect the blind beggar that Scrooge first frightens and later gives money to is Ian Wilson. Since he's blind, his characteristic horn-rims are missing, so it's hard to be positive!

    Archie Duncan is also supposed to be somewhere, but I couldn't find him. A merry Christmas to all, and good spotting in 2014!

    I was watching bits of Scrooge the other day, Dave, and I'd agree that is Ian Wilson. Not so sure about Fanny Carby though!

    Thanks Gerald--couldn't find any young pictures of her, so had to extrapolate! She's supposed to be in the film somewhere, and that's about the closest match I could find. At least I know what Ian Wilson looks like without his glasses now

    The Liquidator (1965) is a quite enjoyable James Bond spoof with a horde of extras throughout.


    In the B&W World War Two prologue, Rod Taylor's tank crewman are fellow Aussie Ken Wayne and Hal Galili.


    The "fey" tailor measuring Taylor for his spy duds is a young (but still bald) Ken Parry.


    At the casino restaurant, Eric Sykes is the main focus at center, but Aileen Lewis can just be seen at left, partially obscured by a lamp, and Victor Harrington is sitting further back at top left.


    The headwaiter Sykes speaks to is Emil Stemmler (of course).


    This film is all about murdering rogue agents. First to go is Betty McDowell, and Fred Woods makes sure to get a good seat. Also on the platform were John Tatum and Tony Mendleson.


    Second victim is Jack Armstrong, whose martini appears to have been both shaken AND stirred.


    And third victim is Bill Cummings, whose presence foreshadows a coming stunt, in this case a plummet from a window while watering the posies, courtesy of Sykes' umbrella.

    George Hilsdon also has a bit as a security guard with a character name (Bert) and three lines of dialogue. And just as I finished typing this, I noticed MovieDude has this film covered on his site. Oops I hope you don't mind MD--I did spot some people you didn't, and the film is really too fun to not call attention to.

    At the inevitable cocktail party are inevitably a lot of familiar faces, including here Alex Lewis. I believe the older lady in yellow has been identified, but can't recall her name.


    Among the "important people" Trevor Howard wants to introduce Jill St. John to are Juba Kennerley and Philip Stewart.


    Meanwhile, Aileen Lewis is hobnobbing with Wilfrid Hyde White. I think that might be Bill Risley behind her. Also at the party I could see Michael Dempsey and "Andy Alston."


    When Jill and Rod decide to take a getaway to Nice, one of the jet passengers appears to be Fred Peck.


    ...while another is definitely Hyma Beckley.


    Finally, at left, is George Holdcroft, who can be seen smiling for once! And this takes us only about halfway through the film!

    I don't mind at all Dave. Just goes to show that I really need to do it again. Great Job.

    And may I say Seasons Greetings to all my friends at Britmovies and to all my enemies elsewhere

    Thanks Movie Dude, and a merry one to you and all (enemies included).


    On the plane ride back to England, Walter Henry gets to sit behind an airsick Taylor, while Fred Peck looks worn out from filming two scenes in a row. I think that might be one of your Saint regulars between them, MD.


    David Tomlinson's driver is a welcome appearance from an uncredited Michael Peake. I have to say that any film that casts Tomlinson as a sadistic killer gets extra points from me

    Alexandra Bastedo has a very small role as a radio operator; must be one of her first speaking roles (you can hear her voice crack). Jill St. John appears to be doing her best at mimicking an English accent, but Gabriella Licudi is certainly dubbed by Barbara Jefford, using the same Russian accent she used to dub Daniela Bianchi in From Russia With Love.

    I have to say I always associate this film with a small part played by Jo Rowbottom as a very beautiful flower seller!

    I've always liked Michael Peake. Sadly he died not long after this film made from heart failure, aged only 48..
