    That's yet more sad news.

    It's not Solo for Sparrow but Double for Sparrow in H. G. WELLS' INVISIBLE MAN:


    George Hilsdon as a none-too-convincing double for villainous Leslie Phillips - even a blind woman could tell - in "Blind Justice"

    The doubles in this episode are pretty poor all round: Honor Blackman's is surely a man in drag!

    Odette (1950) has lots of scenes filmed in France, so sightings are a bit restricted; however:


    As Anna Neagle wonders what she's let herself in for, Ned Lynch catches up on the horse racing


    As Anna Neagle and Trevor Howard wonder if Cannes is as good as the back projection suggests, could that be a young Frank Maher as the waiter?


    As Anna Neagle spins a yarn to the Italian commandant at Annecy Military Jail, we can see it's just old Hugh Morton done up to look continental


    Fingerprint time and Eddie Boyce is queuing up to give them


    As is Dido Plumb


    But the end is nigh as Ravensbr�ck camp commandant Alfred Schieskle finds out on the blower just as Jack Arrow (right) lumbers into his office


    And guard George Hilsdon raises his weapon as he's mobbed by the ladies of the camp.

    Ahh, it certainly looked like a 1950 dark-haired Ned to me!

    We approach "The Black Castle" during THE ADVENTURES OF SIR LANCELOT and in and near it are:


    Guy Standeven centre right giving three cheers as we haven't seen him for a while


    To add to the glee, Peter Rendall either sounding the trumpet or else smoking a very, very long pipe.

    It's a "Jailbreak" for Dermot Walsh, or indeed several, before he "sees" H. G. WELLS' INVISIBLE MAN. Here Dermot experiences the strong arm of the law:


    Applied by P.C. George Curtis and Inspector Brian Worth


    Now we're inside and as Dermot gets led away by Michael Brennan, it's John Tatum who's supervising the mops


    P.O. Brennan (playing Brenner!) unlocks a very spacious cell for lags Mike (Fred Haggerty) and Sharp (Ronald Fraser) and George Hilsdon is the officer at the back.

    It's not shepherd's pie, but "Shepherds' War" in THE ADVENTURES OF SIR LANCELOT. Among the herders:


    Frank Maher and Arthur Howell as bookends. Arthur can be seen doing one of those "being in two places at once" tricks, as in the very next shot he's in the background elsewhere. Both Frank and Arthur have other roles in the middle part of this episode: Frank plays Douglas Argent's porter and Arthur one of his noblemen. Also in Doug's army:


    A bit of fun for the knights bachelor perhaps? Frederick Treves on top and it looks like Norman Johns below.

    In The Fallen Idol (1948), we encounter rozzers in the guise of Torin Thatcher and George Woodbridge down the cop shop. Also there:


    Robert Cawdron in an early (but not atypical) role as P.C. Jones.

    "Red Horse, Red Rider" is a formulaic script by Terry Nation for THE BARON (and it was only the second in production!), but it has its compensations with Jane Merrow as the female lead and villainy from John Bennett and Edward Brayshaw. Sandor El�s even gets an onscreen credit this week! However, among those who don't:


    A mob heads for passport control at the airport involving Ishaq Bux and Frances Baker (and one of our bearded unknowns, as well as "Andy Alston" and John Lynn's wizened lookalike). Frances also appears in an earlier scene as a passerby outside the Baron's shop


    Peter Avella also muscling in


    And Walter Henry


    Dealing with some of the passports is Dallas Cavell


    And dealing with the illegal immigrants is Alan Chuntz on the right


    Another soldier who gets a bit of action - and a punch from the Baron - is Frank Maher


    Curtains pulled and the rebels appear, including the face of Jim Brady. Their leader on the right is Frank Wolff


    Also revolting in a revolting yellow shirt is Tony Castleton during the battle of the Elstree backlot


    And during training, or at least inspecting them, is Private Royston Farrell.

    All directed by John Llewellyn Moxey.

    Could the chap at the front here be Arnold Chazen, anyone?

    It's great to hear a brief interview with Derek Chafer on the DOCTOR WHO DVD of "The Moonbase"; he sounds in great, humorous form and reference is made to the frequent misspelling of his surname. Then the liner notes go and misspell his name twice!!

    Chazen was born in 1931, so seems to old. He is Movie Dude's Unknown Male 78, though. If you are talking about the blond guy on the left, I guess that could be Chazen. Can't find any photos.

    In The Night We Dropped a Clanger (1959), I think we established the boxer on the right is Billy Cornelius. His mate was the subject of debate. Is he in fact Dave Griffiths, or have I dropped a clanger?

    It was the dark-haired guy at the front I was thinking of, Dave. Here is Arnold around the same time in DOCTOR WHO "The Moonbase":

    Thanks, Jim.

    Here's someone else we haven't seen for a while:


    Charlie Price looking a bit horny as one of Norman Mitchell's Dane warriors in THE ADVENTURES OF SIR LANCELOT episode called "The Magic Book".

    There are "Odds Against Death" that these have no onscreen credit in H. G. WELLS' INVISIBLE MAN (and trying not to duplicate any sightings made by cornershop):


    Ian Colin once again as the chap who goads Mr. Invisible to be Mr. Helpful; it's not clear if Ian is playing "Smith" or "Sir George", the two similar roles he's already portrayed in the series


    In an Italian casino, Walter Fitzgerald is doing his sums and Lisa Daniely is winning the lira, but denying Eddie Boyce a seat, otherwise he'd be sitting on the Invisible's lap. Eddie gets a line, but is probably dubbed


    These gamblers are enjoying the game, especially John Payne on the left. Fred Woods' lookalike is there too


    Not enjoying his taxi seemingly driving off on its own is George Roderick. (Get a larger shirt, George)


    And not enjoying a desperate cable car ride is Dudley Foster (Dudders is definitely dubbed), despite the company of Wally and Julia Lockwood.

    A bit different from usual . . .



    . . . Juno the Great Dane from H. G. WELLS' INVISIBLE MAN episode "Strange Partners" (who are Griffith Jones and Patrick Troughton or perhaps Griffith and Juno!). I have a feeling Juno later played "herself" as John Steed's pet in early episodes of THE AVENGERS and was sadly killed in an accident on the London Underground on the way to a recording of an episode from that series.

    Certainly looks like the same dog to me! On a similar note, I'm certain the watchman's cat in Pool of London and Bernard Miles' cat in Smallest Show on Earth are one and the same. Probably Basil Dearden's own calico. At least I'd like to think so
