    The Fake (1953) is a fun art caper film, a B-movie in every sense of the word.


    Unloading the DaVinci painting that is the centerpiece of the film is stevedore Harold Sanderson (and I think Unknown Male 30 behind him).


    Harold is jumped by thieves, and Jim Brady jumps off the lorry to attempt a rescue. Jim Tyson is there to lend, um, weight.


    At the Tate, Unknown Male 45 manages to steal the scene from Ellen Pollock and her companion.


    Also at the gallery is Hyma Beckley...


    and connoisseur Dido Plumb, probably unhappy there's no modern art on display.


    The 'Boy Student' is Leslie Phillips, while the 'Girl Student' is credited as "Marianne Noelle", but it sure looks like it is actually Marianne Stone.


    'John Wadham' is credited as thug, but in the fight scene with Dennis O'Keefe (as well as a uncredited Tom Clegg), it sure looks like Joe Wadham. Did he have a twin? At any rate, this cop finding a dead Seymour Green looks to be Joe after all.

    Among the "Horrible Conspiracies" surrounding ELIZABETH R:


    Cy Town involved in surrounding Glenda Jackson


    And surrounding the execution of Mary Stuart (Vivian Pickles), Cy's back with Eric Kent and Hamilton Dyce looking on.

    There's a wicked gent as well in The Wicked Lady (1945):


    James Mason looks like a 17th century Batman holding up an annoyed Wallace Bosco


    Griffith Jones addresses his tenants, including on the left Emrys Jones and seated on the right, cherubic Jimmy Charters


    Lots of activity around Tyburn and joining in inevitably is Jack May


    Michael Rennie is ready to curb some of that activity and it seems his companion Ted will join him as it's the days of good old Leonard Sachs.

    We go OUT OF THE UNKNOWN to discover "No Place Like Earth" (tx: 04.10.1965) and looking at Alan Tilvern's potential candidates from Mars to Venus:


    The waster dozing by his legs could well be Anthony Lang


    And between Alan and Terence Morgan, it's certainly Madhav Sharma.

    The Red Shoes was the name of our former local dance hall (where the Beatles and the Rolling Stones once performed), but it's also the 1948 Powell and Pressburger film and performing in that:

    A youthful and almost blond Reg Thomason is up in the gallery and Bill Shine gets his programmes

    Lady Neston (Irene Browne) greets plagiaristic Professor Palmer (Austin Trevor) with Wallace Bosco as her butler

    Her guests include Dido Plumb, still looking a bit trampish even in his best clobber. Moira Shearer looks anything but

    The fiery Moira, the cold Anton Walbrook and the creaking Albert Basserman are on stage and L�onide Massine has just ruffled the flowing locks of irritated stagehand Jack May

    At the Mercury Theatre, if Anton was expecting to see Orson Welles, hell be disappointed. We can see top right, however, Robin Burns

    The excited French hotel receptionist is John (or Jean) Serret, set onto a career of playing excited Frenchmen.

    Nice collection, thanks Gerald

    A youthful and almost blond Reg Thomason is up in the gallery and Bill Shine gets his programmes
    Bill Shine is known as "Beardie" and his be-gowned companion (Julia Lang) is thus known as "Weirdie". They are ballet buffs and so are ignored by Marius Goring and his fellow music students

    The excited French hotel receptionist is John (or Jean) Serret, set onto a career of playing excited Frenchmen.
    He parlez a good chunk of French in this scene

    To get some OUT OF THE UNKNOWN is difficult because in "The Counterfeit Man" all the spaceship crewmen wear identical costumes and identical Village of the Damned/Thal blond wigs. However, this one isn't unknown:


    Pat Gorman perhaps doing an impression from that newly-started series, THUNDERBIRDS.

    For the record and for Pat fans, he's also a palace guard in the ELIZABETH R episode "The Enterprise of England".

    Whether or not it it's classed as "The Experiment", the on-screen cast list for the next episode of THE CHAMPIONS is extremely haphazard, as it includes a small role for Philip Bond, but exludes the substantial parts played by Jonathan Burn, Robert James and others. Also part of the experiment:


    I think this is Terry Yorke having a fly puff outside the top secret research establishment otherwise known as the British Rail Centre in Watford, though the corporal looks a bit like Bob Simmons too


    Bearing the stretcher of another significant cast member who gets no credit, or maybe more likely his agent, is Lew Hooper


    And in the grounds of Grim's Dyke House, Terry Mountain is about to be clobbered by William Gaunt's stunt double.

    The main guest star is David Bauer, who nevertheless still does the weekly cutaway voice-over describing the feats of our heroes.

    It's Highly Dangerous to suggest some uncredited cast in the 1950 film, but here goes:


    Margaret Lockwood is about to give Naunton Wayne a lift and treat him to an ersatz Dick Barton radio programme. Meanwhile, it looks like Robert Gregory heading for his car in the background


    Although Margaret and Dance Clark are in a caf� (run by Eric Pohlmann no less), Rex Garner is a customer and not a waiter


    These nasty check point guards seem to include a snarling Richard Gregory


    And when Margaret's about to get grilled by Marius Goring and Olaf Pooley, the police officers seem to include a passive Frederick Schiller



    Time to dance and inevitably having to look up to his partner between Maggie and Dane is Hyma Beckley. A few scenes earlier, Hyma plays a restaurant customer too


    Wilfrid Hyde-Whyte joins the secret police on a station platform and the gaunt soldier in the centre is probably Charles Rayford


    And this soldier is certainly Emil Stemmler, despite Mr. Hyde-White's apprehension. In the immediately preceding scene, Emil is briefly shown playing a railway employee


    Checking the luggage of our heroes isn't advised, almost highly dangerous, but Patric Doonan does it anyway and his colleague John Wilder isn't bugged about it . . . yet.

    Anton Diffring appears briefly as an officer, but gets to do some voice-overs as well.

    It's the Last of Liz, or rather "Sweet England's Pride" in ELIZABETH R and joining in the farewells:


    John More in an anxious audience moment as he, Peter Egan, Haydn Jones and Robin Ellis watch Shakespeare's "Richard II"


    And back in clerical garb, I think it's Freddie Wiles officiating at the positively last performance of the Earl of Essex.

    It might be OUT OF THE UNKNOWN and there's a "Stranger in the Family", but hopefully these gents are known:


    David J. Grahame as a thirsty bar customer


    In the background, Vic Taylor as a neighbour thirsty for gossip. Jack May, Peter Copley and Daphne Slater soon go out of earshot and Vic goes out of camera shot. The lady who's with Vic looks very like the lady who's earlier David's companion.

    Something else OUT OF THE UNKNOWN, and from "The Dead Past" we see:


    When James Maxwell gets home, he finds the real Tommy Winward waiting for him. Tommy's kept busy . . .


    . . . as he also has the very heavy job of delivering Willoughby Goddard to David Langton's office


    Then David decides to show some home movies to George Benson and co., and he's got Pat Gorman there to help him.

    There are lots and lots and lots of our favourites hanging around The Square Ring and here are at least the ones I've been able to spot; needless to say, there's much "being in two places at once" going on:


    Lolloping Jack Warner arrives and is greeted by Alf, who seems to be Jack Rodney


    Bill Owen is hocked when he hears from Vic Wise how many extras are expected for the fights. John Lynn is one of the first to arrive


    Maxwell Reed blocks out his missus (I wonder who that can be?), but at least Eddie Boyce manages to just make it into shot


    Sid James has to appease Vernon Kelso and his underlings, and we are pleased to see John More, Robert Gregory and, in the first of several appearances in the film, the inevitable and blurry Jack Arrow


    Less teeth, but lots of Jimmy Charters doing his favourite thing


    Aidan Harrington watches as toilet permission is sought


    John Lynn back again as Fred Haggerty and his date arrive in the background. I bet she's delighted with the choice of venue: she might even be Lola Morice! Joan Sims is among the amused ladies


    The 1953 gurning finals are well under way, but Paddy Ryan doesn't seem to be entering into the spirit of things


    Sid is still being grilled, but at least the original Jack May makes sure he looks straight at the camera. Sitting next to Jack, round Vernon's head, is Bert Sims, still looking old.

    One of the seconds can't bear to look, but if we do, we can see another inevitable for a boxing film, Ernie Rice


    Another second and we see Jack Sharp and a thin and callow Ronald Lewis


    You can tell this is early in the career of Anthony Lang (sitting next to a Harry Morgan lookalike) as he's laughing. Horsey Face is sitting just out of camera shot too


    Fighting Maxwell tonight is not Joan Collins, but "Joe Dunne of Dublin" announces Sid. Joe's on the left, but I'm not sure if it's stuntman Joe. The wimp with the box is Ivan Staff


    Talking of Joanie, the things she's had to do to get a damehood: facing up to broken Ted Carroll for instance


    Max gets shoved by Jack Arrow (again, but in a different coat), but at least we then get Lindsay Hooper into view


    Robert Beatty gets chatted up by Kay Kendall as Jim Tyson plods by instead of skipping by


    And when Robert goes, we see Manny Michael grinning instead of pouting.

    Time for Jack Armstrong to make his appearance in the crowd. Could that be Tommy Winward behind him? I certainly think that's Harold Coyne looking down top right. Horsey Face is just about into view as well


    Another look at Kay and at Tommy suddenly sitting elsewhere behind her; I think it is he


    Fear not, the third boxing film inevitable now arrives: Jim Brady on the right, plus the bonus of a mournful George Holdcroft on the left as well as Jack Arrow (yet again) and Ted Carroll at the back. Bill Owen is the boxer romping by, and could that be Norman Johns on the left in a dainty bowtie?


    It's all very blurred, but cheering on Alf Hinds/Hines appear to be George Hilsdon and Charles Rayford


    As Bob Beatty enters in the ring, bottom right gives us a view of John Wilder and a cigarette


    Old Dixon is rather concerned about Bob, but fan Fred Stroud seems enthusiastic


    When Kay and Eddie Byrne head off, John Adams gets a caustic line to utter and a rebuke from Eddie to receive


    Finally, Maid Marian arrives in the shape of Bernadette O'Farrell to be greeted by the doorman singing "Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud" if it is Ian Wallace.

    For once, Kid Berg gets an onscreen credit in this film as he plays one of the referees.

    The long-awaited Duel in the Jungle (1954) makes us wait long to get into the jungle, about halfway through the film, but at least the earlier scenes give us scope for some sightings:


    Dana Andrews is stopped from boarding a plane as he's too sloshed and a disgusted but relieved Frederick Kelsey looks on


    When Dana asks Paul Carpenter when the boozers open, we can just about see who I think is Aileen Lewis yet again with another man


    At the George, a startled Jeanne Crain looks round, thinking an odd man is behind her. No, it's only Victor Harrington


    Jeanne seems happier with Dana and his oysters and with Paul Beradi now taking up position behind her


    Dana heads for the travel agents (Johannesburg branch???) and the dark-haired assistant in the background is Martin Lyder. In the foreground, the bald one is John Salew and the other one is . . .


    . . . Jack Armstrong. Dana and John would meet again three years later in a memorable scene in the Reading Room of the British Museum in Night of the Demon


    Dana wisely disembarks George Coulouris's ship in an unconventional manner, much to the chagrin of a Cockney-accented Walter Gotell, here with Larry Taylor and A. N. other.

    Doing "Time in Advance" are the likes of Edward Judd and Mike Pratt and guarding them on their return from OUT OF THE UNKNOWN:


    Oliver MacGreevy, who gets loads of dialogue and Otto Friese who gets none. Otto, however, pitches up later as a habitu� of the Hotel Capricorn Ritz automated bar


    Eddie and Mike are being quizzed by Peter Madden and reporter Derek Martin manages to get his face in. He, too, pops up in the Hotel Capricorn Ritz later on. And yes, those blond wigs are back as well (except for Oliver)


    As we can see here, plus we can see Mike Reid getting his face down the camera lens as well. Mike must've been getting attached to blond wigs because a few months earlier he wore one as an uncredited Thal in the film Dr. Who and the Daleks.

    Quite ghostly to make out, but if you have more than one careful look, you might thrillingly see an almost deadly Ron Gregory on the left as a waiter in THRILLER "One Deadly Owner". Donna Mills and Robert Morris are being interrupted by Jeremy Brett. Another though credited waiter is Ray Marioni (although the endless American credits decide to call him "Roy Marioni").

    All involved could do a lot better and certainly no worse, but in For Better, For Worse (1954):


    Edging into the cinema with his latest click appears to be Paul Phillips


    Dirk Bogarde and Susan Stephen get hitched and the guests at the door are Pat Halpin and Ned Lynch, entering his silver fox period


    As we get nearer to the happy couple, we also get nearer to the big conk and generous incisors of Muriel Greenslade


    A couple of scene transitions give us more guests in the shape of John Wilder


    And Otto Friese. A subdued Cecil Parker is Susan's pater


    A less subdued Athene Seyler gives her commands to the fishmonger, watched by a wary Susan and ignored at the back by Eddie Boyce


    At work, Dirk puts in his order for steak and kidney pudding with George Roderick no doubt licking his chops behind him


    And more chops being licked at Restaurant Jacques: we only get to see the back the waiter on the left, but I think it's Rex Garner. The waiter in the centre is Emil Stemmler and the diner with cigarette between his fingers is the ever-present Jack Armstrong.
