    Reg Thomason in Public Eye? The nose and pipe make me think it is. From the episode Ward of Court (1971):



    With pub landlord Ivan Beavis, who played Harry Hewitt in Coronation Street, and Alfred Burke as Marker.


    Looking back at my screencaps for The Pumpkin Eater (1964), I came across one I posted last year. That was when
    I spotted Tom Adams (left). Since then, Pat Halpin has become a recognisable face and I think that's him on the right:



    The best comparison I can find is this one from Follow a Star (1959). Do you still have the full image, MovieDude?:



    From your Pat Halpin page.

    I think you were right first time, Dave. The pouting lower lip, the baggy eyes: it is Manny Michael on the left.

    Not Reg Thomason, cornershop, but the chap with his back to us heading out is Lewis Alexander.

    And that is certainly Pat Halpin.

    Recent episodes of THE ADVENTURES OF THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL which I haven't mentioned on here have been fairly quiet on the uncredited front, apart from Steve Donahue and Otto Friese popping up now and again. The cast list for "Antoine & Antoinette" is a bit more full than usual, and no Steve or Otto, but still omitted:


    George Roderick as Citizen court usher. The Clerk of the Court is Alan Whittaker. That's Marius Goring as Sir Percy Blakeney as the Scarlet Pimpernel as Judge Amare coming on the bench. Marius doesn't get a credit for doing narration duties on this episode, nor for playing the "real" Judge Amare.

    Certainly Cornershop. Here it is. Or a very slightly different one.

    It's not a Friday when the robbers pull off their bank heist, not is it perfect, but it is Perfect Friday (1970):


    Toiling at the bank on the right is Lew Hooper


    Toiling at the museum may be Bill Cummings as a guard. David Warner and Stanley Baker are unconcerned one way or the other


    Nudging past Arsula Undress and Stan at Paddington looks very like Paddy Smith


    Nudging past the peers in the Upper House is Eric ("fleshings") Longworth, trying to reached a still unconcerned Dave. The peer speaking is Carleton Hobbs and if we peer carefully we can also see Frank Draycott, Jack Armstrong (who may also be in the Paddington sequence), Juba Kennerley and Philip Stewart


    When Ms. A decides to fly away, her fellow passengers include Tommy Winward and - we can just see the top of his head and arched eyebrow four rows back on the right, Eden Fox.

    Howard Lang appears as the bank's commissionaire in a few scenes, but is dubbed for his main appearance.

    Many Thanks for posting the full image, MovieDude. Fascinating to see in its proper context. I didn't even know Hattie Jacques is in that film.

    Gerald, I'm going to give this one more try. A closer view of the man I thought might be Reg Thomason:


    Again with Ivan Beavis (left) and Alfred Burke. Extraordinary spot if you're right about Lewis. Making it even more likely Reg happened to be passing by?

    I hope this isn't my last post of the year (what a terrible screencap to end with). If all goes well, I can manage a few more before friends arrive.

    Happy New Year.

    I'm afraid that isn't Reg, but I'm certain it is Lewis.

    Best wishes for 2014 to you, cornershop.

    Hello again! I'm still here, as John Major used to say, having left them to watch Mamma Mia on TV (God forbid ).

    I don't know if you're aware of this but the Lewises once played Francesca Annis's parents, in The Pleasure Girls (1965):



    They only appear in the pre-credits sequence, saying their Goodbyes as she steps into the car with their chauffeur .

    I was going to include this in my opening post for the couple's joint thread but it wouldn't work alongside their close-up in Repulsion.

    Happy New Year to Scott, by the way (where has he gone?) and John Walter Skinner, who I also haven't crossed paths with for a while.

    I applaud your taste, cornershop, and Scott is still around.

    Also around, but much to Roger Moore's chagrin, is his apparent doppelganger in The Man Who Haunted Himself (1970). Involved in haunting this film too, albeit masked, are:


    I think this is George Hilsdon at the foot of Sir Roger's trolley in the operating theatre. More of George anon . . .


    The surgeon here has the eyes of Dennis Chinnery


    And his oppo here has the eyebrows of John Gabriel (not the best name for someone involved in surgical operations perhaps)


    Going to the other extreme of exposure, we have Anton Rodgers and Rog here, plus in the white trunks, I hope it is Roy Beck


    Our hero goes for dinner with Brian Blessed's wife Hildegard Neil - by permission of the Royal Shakespeare Co., no less - (did Brian say "Moore's ALIVE!!!"??) and Jack Arrow is there too


    The lady in green in the background looks like Pearl Walters


    And while I think we've seen Mr. Carraway before (Frank Draycott, playing Mr. Martin), may I draw your attention to the bloke behind him who looks awfully like Keith Ashley.

    Also in the casino are the impassive Harold Pelham and the manager Basil Henson:




    The diminutive Hyma Beckley too


    I promised you more George Hilsdon and here he is saying "goodbye, Mr. Chips, hello, cash"


    The back of Roger's head demands answers and his fellow club members give him none, including Pat Hagan sitting down on the job on the left and Tony Wright at the right of the bar


    Rog soon finds he's snookered, aided by two more Pats: Pat Ryan and Pat Halpin. Victor Harrington is in the snooker scenes too


    And when Mrs. Blessed and Mr. Moore head out of this nightclub, all that seems to be between them is waiter Andrew Andreas.

    Thanks Gerald--they do look rather similar, but Manny always had that pout!

    There is an extra I've seen a few times who I always mistake at first for Reg (large nose), but it's not him. he's one of the graveyard extras in Plague of the Zombies, for example. Perhaps Reg had a stunt double?

    best wishes for 2014, and hope to see more of your posts in 2014!

    Another of THE ADVENTURES OF THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL involves "The Winged Madonna" with no big boobies, but with big doubling-up:


    Sir Percy is going to Rue to day he purchases this book from Pascal, played by Steve Donahue, who has the dubbed voice of Patrick Troughton, who in turn doesn't appear in this episode. Steve is back later on as Brother Stephen, this time wordless but belligerent


    Then turn out the guards: Nicholas Bruce is the captain and the one on the right, who gets a bit of action shortly, is Fred Haggerty. Fred then turns up soon after as a chuckling crony of Thomas Heathcote.

    There's comparatively little scope for sightings in Not Now, Comrade (1976), but in the opening location scene:


    There's Gerald Paris in London clicking away on the right.

    Men Without Honour (1939) is a cheap little hour long film about the evils of "sharepushing" (stock swindling) that is mainly notable for Howard Douglas receiving second billing behind Ian Fleming.


    I am fairly certain the copper on the right backing up Inspector George Dewhurst is a young Pat Hagan.


    While the concerned shareholder on the left is Jack May (still with dark hair!) In the middle is the Reverend Charles Paton; the heavyset fellow on the right is someone, but I can't recall his name.

    Happy New Year, Dave (again). It does look like Pat Hagan. I have Charles Paton's Spotlight profile from that year if you're interested.

    First screencap of 2014

    And it's Walter Henry! He features in a news item read by Ronnie Barker in the first episode of The Two Ronnies (1971):



    “The President of the Newport-Camden Planning Association is to have another child."

    Seconds later comes that surprisingly violent sketch where Ronnie B appears to slap Ronnie C quite hard at a party.

    Found it on YouTube (at about 2 mins 30 secs):

    The Two Ronnies: S1E1 (Classic British Comedy)

    We meet the "Gentlemen of the Road" in the penultimate episode of THE ADVENTURES OF THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL. They include Richard Pearson, Conrad Phillips . . . and Celia Hewitt! There's an unusually large credited cast list for once, but also:


    Neal Arden watches as Marius Pimpernel downs his drink and among the Blue Parrot clientele waiting to cosh him is Fred Haggerty


    The next pub our hero gets to, The Star and Eagle, is far more pleasant: the landlord is George Spence - for a second I thought he was even going to speak - and the little patron at the back is old Jack May. And blimey, he does speak!
