    JASON KING may find "Uneasy Lies the Head", but let's see how steady the faces are on some of those hairy noggins:


    Alicia St. Leger having a great old inflight time, hair permed, drink in hand . . .


    . . . while on the ground at Istanbul Airport, Alan Harris does his best to hide from us as he examines the "genuine" merchandise on sale . . .


    . . . while Charlie Price, wise to the con, just saunters on by and later can just about be seen in a hotel lobby sequence


    A fake Jason King arrives from London, innocent Lance Percival in dirty mac, followed by a suspicious Pat Ryan


    Still wandering around an airport is Rodney Cardiff, without stopping to have a gander at Antony Stamboulieh's impressive upper lip growth


    Well, we get another look at it in the company of Harold Kasket and a worried looking Joe Powell


    And let's get a third look at it as John Clifford strolls between Antony and Harold, heading for hotel clerk Tony Thawnton who can't quite match the moustache, but sports some alarming-looking sideburns.

    One we get into the air with Jet Storm (1959), there's no scope for sightings as the passengers are well credited, but when still at London Airport:


    Taxi driver Guy Standeven comments it's a good day for a flight, but Richard Attenborough is haunted by the thought he left his passport on the kitchen table


    Reporters and photographers lie in wait for our famous cast and Tony Spear (centre) is leading them. The photographer on the right . . .


    . . . looks so very like Alan MacNaughton, but even at this time I doubt he would be doing extra work. Michael Stevenson was third AD on this one, so he might remember


    More newshounds in the shape of Ken Lawton (centre back) and with the most lines, Marianne Stone


    Marty Wilde and Jackie (Jocelyn) Lane get snapped by George Holdcroft as Paul Eddington and Lana Morris (who have Jeremy Judge as their son) look on enviously


    Gazing at Mai Zetterling with his usual caring affection is John Tatum


    And as Dickie and Mai have words under the plane's wing (none of that health and safety nonsense then ), Gerald Paris comes by as a fellow passenger, but he's never seen again. Considering what happens once they're airborne, I think Gerald made the right decision to scarper.

    They may be known as THE NEW ADVENTURES OF CHARLIE CHAN, but some of them starring J. Carrol Naish and his irritating index fingers look much more elderly than Warner Oland pictures. In "The Counterfeiters" (tx: 12.10.1957), the action moves to Paris, France and the Caf� Mandrake:


    There, New Number One Son Barry (James Hong) is about to become the victim of pickpocket John Lynn, while Ernie Rice in the background simply enjoys the company of the mademoiselles


    When Barry orders some wine, Rex Garner is there to serve it up as Marne Maitland adds yet another ethnicity to his repertoire playing Spanish Roy.

    Re Jetstorm

    I hope John T. isn't the pilot Gerald.
    His glum face would be the least reassuring thing you would want to see when your plane is in trouble..

    THE NEW ADVENTURES OF CHARLIE CHAN continue with an old story involving aging university student Francis Matthews and "The Death of a Don" - and there is a character called Don in it:


    Here, Inspector Maurice Durant is questioning in the gloom a gloomy Betty McDowall and glum William Franklyn with P.C. Arthur Howell looking round for his cue card as he gets a few words to utter.

    Dave has already sowed One Wild Oat (1950), but two further possibles:

    Paul Phillips as the young man annoyed by potential peeping tom Robertson Hare?

    Even though it's 1950, Pauline Chamberlain as the amused girl on the right? The Arthur Askey lookalike is Robertson Hare . . . with hair.

    My vote would be no, Gerald, for what it's worth.

    Yeah, I agree with Cully, probably not Pauline. That does look a lot like Paul, though. My copy was so rubbish I'm amazed I could ID the leads.

    The Case of the Frightened Lady (1940) is a pretty good Edgar Wallace thriller with lots of familiar character players, both credited and uncredited.


    I do think the P.C. seated to the left of the standing constable is a young Jack Mandeville. If anyone can ID the standing copper, I'd appreciate it, too!

    Scott Palmer tells me, however, that Pauline was in the film, so who knows?

    There is a "Circle of Fear" in THE NEW ADVENTURES OF CHARLIE CHAN, but also quite a circle of confusion in the cast listing provided by IMDb. First of all, pre opening credits:


    The world's best diamond cutter is Emil Van Boorman, and this is he, played by Frederick Schrecker, not, as IMDb would have it, Ian Whittaker . Ian is in it, though:


    Here he is playing Fred's stepson Kirk Holton. Tom Macaulay gets a screen credit and IMDb have him down playing Kirk! I'm not sure where Tom is, unless that's him on the left playing a London Airport Customs Official who gets a few lines


    And getting a few years in a very spacious cell is Bert Conway played by Michael Balfour, arrested for wearing a vest in public. When Charlie and his index fingers (played, and constantly pointed, by J. Carrol Naish) go to visit him, it's not very clear, but I believe it's Bill Baskiville holding the keys.

    There's death as well as Life in Emergency Ward 10 (1958), as well as quite a number of uncredited roles:

    Before the main titles come up, there's an accident to behold and among those beholding it is Mark Mil(l)eham - here from a later scene - who IMDb has down as "Mark Mylam"

    No prizes for guessing what role Joe Wadham has in the accident scene

    Into the film proper, there's a pub in Emergency Ward 10. Harry Van Engel joins Glyn Owen for a gander at philandering Michael Craig

    You just knew that phone was going to ring. Tony Castleton and his chum can't be bothered to answer it, so Frederick Bartman gets the job (and the lines)

    There's a party in Emergency Ward 10. There's Glyn again having a jig, with Ken Hutchins in the background, while the gent in the centre . . .

    . . . is Pat Halpin back on the dance floor.

    Those drouthy doctors Charles Tingwell and Bart from Barts need no less than two barmen at the party. Johnny Wyne for one . . .

    . . . and Gerry Judge for the other

    Oh, and what's a hospital party without a conga? And here's Vic Chapman relishing it

    Though relish is not how I would regarding this shot with Glyn really getting carried away (before he delivered quads) though thankfully the grass skirts hide the quads of Martin Lyder

    And almost hidden during the end cast roll is Jack May on the right, who has just had a bitter pill to swallow. In the list, as well as seeing Maurice Kaufmann's name shown incorrectly, the 1st. and 2nd. Boys both have dubbed voices which sound very like children from THE WOODENTOPS, etc., so it could be courtesy of Josefina Ray. Also, the porter played by Ken Warren is the "other" Kenneth Warren and not Kenneth J. Warren as IMDb indicates. George Tovey is credited as Joan Sims' husband Mr. Pryor, which role he certainly plays near the end of the film, but:

    Earlier on he plays a wheelchair-bound patient who is wheeled quickly out of shot by Sister Dorothy Alison before we get a good look at his face (though his voice is unmistakable). Tony Quinn is the bedridden one.

    There's more than one "Exhibit in Wax" on display in THE NEW ADVENTURES OF CHARLIE CHAN. Exhibiting himself up and down a Scotland Yard corridor whenever the door is open:


    Is Bill Baskiville, while Rupert Davies now plays Inspector Duff (Maigret without the accent), apparently John Unicomb is his sidekick Tom and CC himself (J. Carrol Naish) wraps his index finger round a knife: to hell with fingerprints


    And that goes double as Ronald Leigh-Hunt discovers when Bob E. Raymond dusts the telephone and even gets a word to say.

    Aveleyman and Movie Dude have already released Freedom Radio (1940), but here are a few more to broadcast:


    The Fuhrer's doctors include star Clive Brook in the centre, but also there on the left is Gordon McLeod


    At a party hosted by nasty Nazi Raymond Huntley, the officer at the foot of the stairs appears to be John Wilder, an early appearance for him, but not the earliest we've found so far (which was 1936)


    In the squad car tracking down the pirate radio station is Howard Lang (right). Back at base, William Hartnell is among those also at it, though the Aveleyman picture is not correct; the Movie Dude one is our Billy, however


    In the drawing room peering down into the piano for a radio transmitter perhaps may be Richard Shaw


    And the matron at Clive's clinic seems to be Nora Gordon with dark hair.

    There's a speech made by Hitler (in English, though I suppose all the characters are supposed to be talking German) and it sounds like the voice is supplied by Welshman Clifford Evans (who's also in the film as an S.S. man).

    An "Assault Force" is assembled during RETURN OF THE SAINT, but first:


    Let's have an orange juice served up on an airfield by John Clifford wearing one of those huge 70s bowties


    It looks like it's P.C. Lou Morgan on duty in another field with Ian Ogilvy, Anthony Chinn and Neil Stacy getting suitably windswept


    Though it looks like the diminutive Kate O'Mara is getting suitably delighted being stuck in a queue behind tall press photographer Derek Chafer.

    A few years earlier then the Return of the Saint, we find things are a bit more mundane down at New Scotland Yard: Nothing To Live For
    At ACC Raymond Adamsons retirement party we find

    New Scotland Yard - Nothing to Live For Victor Harrington.JPG

    An exiting Victor Harrington. He's later seen back at the party, so perhaps he was was off to the Gents..

    The "Backfire" is rather clever for THE NEW ADVENTURES OF CHARLIE CHAN, and serving in Her Majesty's Constabulary this time:


    Quite blurred, but I think it's George Hilsdon on duty among the seething crowds at "Hyde Park Corner" where speaker William Franklyn demonstrates to J. Carrol Naish that he's been infected by the latter's index finger acting


    And despite the lack of a steering wheel, certainly Joe Wadham when Inspector Duff (Rupert Davies minus pipe) and Charlie pounce on the criminal.

    In 1948, Garry Marsh and his reluctant poltergeist hunters Alfred Drayton and Gordon Harker discover Things Happen at Night and we also discover happening at a do:


    Peter Reynolds sitting between Olga Lindo and Alfred (in his last film) at what could well be an engagement party, though the screenplay isn't too clear about that. The waiter in the background . . .


    . . . we can be more clear in this shot is Louis Matto


    And when Eric Micklewood and Beatrice Campbell make a sharp exit as soon as Marilyn Williams starts to sing, another waiter cleaning the cutlery in the background is Rex Garner


    Gordon is forced into dancing with the formidable Mrs. Courtney-Fortescue (Judith Warren), though he'd rather make a grab for what Johnny Rossi has on his tray


    When Alfred and Robertson Hare are involved in sawing Gordon in half, Olga feels the need to consult Charles, the family doctor, played by Ernest Borrow.

    "Nadine" (Ingrid Pitt) has secret plans for JASON KING (Peter Wyngarde), but he may be one step ahead of her. As Jason steps into an Athens restaurant:


    I think the devilish-looking diner could be Bill Hibbert


    Another one in the background right is Derek Chafer (no sign of Kate O'Mara this time)


    And the restaurant manager is Tony Castleton, here holding back aggressive John Hamill with Stacey Gregg as his moody fianc�e


    Like John, there's a fair bit of chest on display as usual from Patrick Mower, that medallion man extraordinaire, more than Ingrid Pitt for once, while the waiter displaying serving skills seems to be Andrew Andreas


    Moving on to Pisa, leaning against his car is that tower of strength Roy Lansford.
