    George Holdcroft is a court policeman, he had not been identified yet when Gerald first capped this.

    Alec Guinness sets off for his Last Holiday in 1950 and along the way encounters:


    George Spence as a nosey (and he did have a suitable nose for this) patient in the clinic waiting room. George is not to be seen there when Alec walks through the waiting room in the next scene


    When getting new togs for his hols, Alec might want to consult smart Wallace Bosco


    Alec seems delighted to find he's checking in with receptionist Helen Cherry and in the background, Frederick Kelsey may be checking out: I don't think we see him again in the film


    As Beatrice Campbell arrives in the bar, Jack Mandeville is already there chatting up his date with a bald patch for the night. Jack later is one of the poker players in Sid James's room and on he way out, he nasally says to Sid "Goodnight; thanks for the game"


    Here's Sid himself, propping up the bar as usual, with Jean Colin as his missus. George the Barman is Emil the Stemmler



    Now, here's a fine trio of thesps: Ned Lynch supported by Sir Alec Guinness and Lord Sidney James


    When the guests have to fend for themselves thanks to Comrade Hal Osmond, Gregoire Aslan (billed as Coco Aslan) shows Jean and her fellow ladies how to cook up a storm; Muriel Greenslade heads the table


    That lift needs a lift. John Charlesworth the page and Pat Hagan the guest are no help. It looks like Guy Middleton pressing the button into the next room, but in fact it's Eric Maturin


    These rustics at Fallow End include Perce the pooch and Jack May as Fred, who gets several oh-arr type lines to utter


    And we close the holiday on this stunning close-up of lorry driver Jack Arrow, who no doubt utters arr type lines immediately thereafter.

    Captain Clegg (1962), aka Night Creatures, is now out on Region B bluray, so it's an opportunity to have a further look at him. Previously Fred Peck and Fred Woods have been sighted as villagers and Bill Brandon and Gerry Crampton as sailors, though I now note that Bill is imaginatively called "Brandon" by Bosun David Lodge at one point and Gerry, the tattooed sailor, is called "Smee" by Captain Patrick Allen (who incidentally does the narration too). Gerry also doubles for Milton Reid in a fight scene with Peter Cushing. I'm not sure who doubles Peter, but it might be fight supervisor Bob Simmons or the recently sadly departed Terry Richards who is down as doing some of the stunts. Talking of Terry:


    This must be Terry Richards giving nasty innkeeper Martin Benson a deservedly cold stare. David Lodge is hopeful of finding refreshment and Michael Ripper, in one of the best of his many roles for Hammer, is amused by the eye make-up he has to wear


    Later, Patrick A gets rougher with Martin B. It takes both Gerry Crampton and Bill Brandon to hold down Oliver Reed (and he's not touched a drop) and the laughing sailor on the right I think is Bill Sawyer


    Bill Brandon in his other uncredited role: second from the right as one of Cap'n Clegg's pirates. Colin Douglas reads out the charges and Milton Reid, who gets a lot to do in this film, suffers as well as has lines, well, in the prologue at least


    Moving onto the villagers, if Ollie and his dad Derek Francis could just look round, they'd see (inevitably in a Peter Cushing film) Paddy Smith, on this occasion in a dodgy wig


    The assembled congregation includes the two Freds, but also on the right front row, two along from Squire Francis, it's John Tatum now in his dodgy wig. Just over Derek's shoulder, it's Ernie Rice . . . in a dodgy wig. And at the right end of Ernie's row, why it's Jack Sharp in (well, guess)


    And hiding his dodgy wig under a hat, Charles Rayford joins Pat in a night-time wander through the churchyard.

    The dodgy wigs were presumably provided by Mrs. Fred Peck, i.e. Frieda Steiger.

    Was this one filmed out of Shepperton, as the top two screencaps look like the interior of Littleton House?

    Scott Palmer asked me to screencap a certain shot from the finale of The Curse of the Werewolf (1961), to see who we could see, so:



    I can see there, as well as a few more of Frieda's dodgy wigs, Fred Woods, Ted Carroll (broken variety) and Peter Rendall. At the back, it's Alister Williamson, along with Peter Sallis and Clifford Evans.

    Thanks Gerald, I knew if someone could freeze this there would be some people in it.
    And thanks for doing Last Holiday too-brilliant spottings!

    Not sure about Littleton House Gerald, but The Internecine Project was a UK/German production shot at Shepperton.

    Littleton House it is then, I think, as it's part of the Shepperton lot

    RUMPOLE AND THE SHOW FOLK (tx: 12.06.1979) has the old boy visiting a grim northern court, where he finds Eleanor Bron and probably not as welcome, Reg Thomason and Lewis Alexander, plus Charles Rayford and Walter Henry in one of their respective rare credited appearances, as well as:


    The solicitor's clerk in the wing collar must surely be John Rogers, and the usher whose back is turned to us is John Beardmore. It's Paul Rogers doing the dramatic advocacy with a pistol and Roger Brierley who's gazing at him dubiously.

    The rather lugubrious-looking man smack in the middle is Byron Sotiris.

    The woman on the jury second from the right just behind Rumpole's head could be Lee Richards of blessed memory.

    Yes, it does very much look like her, cully.

    In 1970, Warren Mitchell heads All the Way Up and meets on that journey:


    Fred Machon on the right just under the opening titles and luckily he's in a bar and later, he's in another pub scene


    Looks like Victor Harrington is dodging under the titles too and thankfully getting the pints in


    We get a proper service welcome from Bill Fraser's doorman George Hilsdon. George's not so well served by the sound department, who dub him


    The same sound fate befalls Bill's underling Reg Thomason.

    We next head to a dinner dance and rather like a scene in A Countess from Hong Kong, everywhere we turn, someone pops up, as you shall see:


    Warren arrives at the do, and Lally Bowers cares not a jot. Aileen Lewis looks round disdainfully and although we only see his back, it's definitely Lewis Alexander who's getting the duchess glare


    On the left, it's the "Worshipful Master" Pat Ryan, with his missus who I think is Alicia St. Leger meaning she's really the missus of Jack Armstrong on the right. At least it's Lola Morice further right


    Vanessa Howard and Richard Briers have separate agenda on the dance floor and also separate are Gerry Judge and Anthony Lang


    As they continue, it looks like a brief appearance of Mabel Etherington on the right. We continue shortly . . .

    Warren and his silly old m, no, his beloved Pat Heywood, survey the happy dancers, as does Frances Baker filling the background


    And they must really be happy because even George Holdcroft is smiling. Centre, we get Pauline Chamberlain to keep cully happy and right, Alan Meacham


    More happiness from John Clifford I think, Robin Hunter and Roy Beck


    And from Hyma Beckley, plus more glee from Tony, Alan and Pauline. Hyma's given a suitably diminutive dancing partner so it doesn't look like Bernie Ecclestone and his latest Amazon prancing about


    The tall grey-haired dancer on the left is very likely a happy Graham Tonbridge. Frank Draycott may also be on the dance floor


    Oh well, okay then, not everyone can be happy and John Tatum is there to prove it


    After encountering that miserable face, Dickie needs a peg and Vic Chapman is there to serve it up.

    After all that, Mr. and Mrs. Briers feel the need to go to church, but Ron Gregory is there too giving thanks he's not Tommy Winward


    Warren and his mates have a good old laugh about that mix-up, especially Peter Evans who I thought was Lincoln Wright for a while. Maggie McGrath, or is that Maggie Rennie, joins in


    Ken Cranham wants Dickie Briers to let his hair down, if not his trousers, so they head off to Soho, to find naughty old mac-wearing Arthur Goodman has beaten them to it


    That shock makes us go right back to church and as well as Warren and some of his brood, Walter Henry in the background sings from the same hymn sheet


    Unfortunately, Dickie still gets sloshed and staggers into Arnold Diamond's Italian restaurant, lunch or dinner regardless. Andrew Andreas is there to greet him


    Even more unfortunately, Vanessa's there with Robin and I don't think they're going to be able to manage anything from the trolley. Pat Halpin is sitting at the back contemplating la dolce vita, or whatever his ladyfriend's name is


    A barney in the bistro occurs and while Ken phones for reinforcements, Arnold tries to calm one of his splattered diners who might be Ned Hood (the real one)?


    Warren's masterplan comes together, or so he thinks. His other daughter, Elaine Taylor, is involved much to Pat's delight and striding up to them is the tall Harold Sanderson


    Warren's masterplan comes apart and he's got four telephone boxes to deal with. Just a guess, but is this Byron Sotiris in no. 1?


    Warren comes apart now, as in no. 4 is Roy Scammell and he's not a stuntman for nothing. It's all the way down for Mr. Mitchell.

    And it's all way the down here too as it's back to THE BARON and it's "The Long, Long Day": how I feel after I watch some of these. This one is by Tony O'Grady (Brian Clemens) and directed by Roy Ward Baker which are pluses, but it hardly features Sue Lloyd at all which is a very big minus. It does feature though:


    Martin Lyder at a very louche party in Rome. Lots of naughtiness going on there, including ladies with ladies and . . .


    . . . boys with boys. I think the one on the left is Royston Farrell. Peter Arne is at this party too, so gawd knows what he's up to


    Slobbering over Jim Tyson, I trust not


    Talking of slobs, when the B arrives at a backlot village, who's lying down outside the inn talking to a donkey and about to be splattered upon by John Bryans but Dido Plumb


    Trouble arrives in the shape of Peter Brace as Hugo, who's part of a storyline that has echoes of Rio Bravo, crafty Brian.
