    Gerald in the 1/9's I'm sure that is Eden Fox on the front row next to Marilyn/lookalike ?, also S.Choudhary in a turban further back.

    I don't think it's Eden - too old for him then and see the screencap above - but you could be right about S. Choudhary.

    More chins on view in The March Hare (1955):


    That of Norman Fisher is in the Ascot background while Unknown Male 5 in the foreground actually gets to move his as he gets a line to say to Ivan Samson. Norman returns later on


    An even more prominent chin is that belonging to Ernest Blythe, on display in the centre here. Wilfrid Hyde-White and Terence Morgan are in their grey toppers and Martita Hunt also has some extravagant headgear


    Paul Phillips is not so elaborately dressed as he does his bit of spectating sans topper


    Giving the odds are bookies Edward Lexy and Donald Conlan with Lola Morice checking the form


    Terence checks out Peggy Cummins' form and Ernie Rice takes the odds


    They get their winnings from Edward as John Dennison looks around for the beer tent (behind him - Ernie follows him in!). Also in the crowds are "Gerald Lawson's father" and the Victor Harrington lookalike


    At a local dance, Jack Mandeville continues in the tradition of Hyma Beckley and Lewis Alexander by dancing with a lady considerably taller than he is. This he does again in a later dance scene at the "Porchester Hotel, London".

    Checking the March Hare's times are Terence and Wilfrid plus Macdonald Parke, who is much less blustering than usual. His driver appears to be Fred Davis


    Martita takes trainer with the magical (albeit sozzled) touch Cyril Cusack to the local, but John Wilder is there already


    As indeed are Robert Gregory, "Dan" and Paul Beradi. Paul's twin () is concurrently at the races


    Where we find Wilfrid, desperately trying to get a message through on the blower in another of those plot twists resolved today by having a mobile. Arthur Howell just gets on with the crossword


    Ernie Rice would be lost in the beer tent without his chum, so luckily here's Jim Brady toddling along in the background


    The extras move around the racecourse more than the horses. Here Philip Stewart gets his fleeting moment of fame. That's the aforesaid Ivan Samson on the right


    Bringing us back to the start with Norman Fisher once again along with Unknown Male 5 plus Mole Man and Barry Johns.

    Patton (1969) is of course not an British film, but there is at least one sequence filmed here, at Knutsford in Cheshire. Among the enchanted ladies:


    Betty Alberge, late of Weatherfield, with presumably Dolores Judson on her left.

    [QUOTE=Gerald Lovell;2165152]Negligently omitted from the earlier posts on The Man Who Wouldn't Talk, the man who was missed out:


    Guy Standeven along with men who wouldn't stay in the same seats, like George Holdcroft, Peter Rendall and Paul Phillips. Ballard Berkeley is the clerk of the court who sees a gun before him.[/QUOTE

    Gerald I bumped into this old post of yours, interestingly we see Richard Gregory partly obscured by Jack Hetherington and further back we see his lookalike contemplating why Richard has been named and he hasn't.

    Before you know who points it out, I think it's Lindsay Hooper!

    In 1956, It's Never Too Late to see:


    Noisy Sam Kydd listening in to bickering lovers Peter Hammond and Susan Stephen


    At a posh party, John Payne joins in the dancing


    Roy Everson joins in the grinning. Susan's rarely without her white gloves


    Richard Thorp as Alan Hapgood, the party host, is rarely without his girlfriend


    Phyllis Calvert's family see her off at the airport and they don't look too happy: Patrick Barr, Jean Taylor Smith, Richard Leech, Sarah Lawson and Susan (in gloves). Seeing them is official Ned Lynch


    On the plane over to the States, Phyllis has John Wilder in the row in front


    And Ian Selby sitting next to her all the way


    In her Hollywood hotel, two of the bellboys are Tony Castleton and Jack Dearlove


    And the two butterfingered removal men back home are Fred Griffiths and Robert Brooks-Turner


    For Patrick's sake, I hope Ernie Rice is not butterfingered with this sign.

    Shirley Anne Field is on the IMDb list, but I didn't spot her. The suggestion that it's Alan Bates plating King Lear in the RADA rehearsal is possible, but it's impossible to tell.

    Belinda Lee gets another lift girl appearance in ARE YOU BEING SERVED? in "Heir Apparent", but caught on "Closed Circuit":


    Jill Goldston is not being served by Miss Brahms at the store's closing time


    Dining out at Romano's, she, Captain Peacock and Mrs. Slocombe, all in "disguise", are aghast as priest Walter Henry has the dubious pleasure of saying to Mr. Humphries in bishop's rigging "are you being kissed?" . . . on both cheeks!

    Now we face up to "The Erotic Dreams of Mrs Slocombe" in ARE YOU BEING SERVED? Avoiding comments about her pussy:


    Mr. Humphries and Captain Peacock are joined by two B. Lees: Belinda Lee as a lift girl as usual and Benny Lee as Mr. Klein


    Top Marx for entering The Big Store for Leslie Adams. The dapper elderly gentleman is Jack Haig


    And having A Night at the Opera is Cy Town.

    Still the question is ARE YOU BEING SERVED? The 1981 Christmas edition "Roots?" brings out:


    Mr. Rumbold's brother Mycroft (!) with an opportunity to give more hair to Nicholas Smith than usual


    Belinda Lee finally gets more to do than operate a lift when she lifts and highland flings her legs


    But Jimmy Mac just does his usual prop shifting as Nurse Vivienne Johnson props us both Messrs. Grace in their last appearance.

    Then onto 1983 and when Mr. Humphries is accused of "Conduct Unbecoming":


    Back into the staff canteen for Belinda Lee


    Back onto the shop floor for Cy Town


    And jury duty for Jimmy Mac and co.

    The Val Guest-directed The Weapon (1956) starts off as if we're going to get one of his intriguing semi-documentary style police procedurals:

    At Bow Street Station, perennial detective John Horsley arrives as P.C. Colin McKenzie pins up the policeman's ball latest info

    And P.C. George Curtis hands Divisional Superintendent J. W. Mackenzie (not Inspector, IMDb) played by Herbert Marshall, his dossier - a word that caused much mirth for Emrys Jones, Patrick Troughton and Frazer Hines (who's in this as little Jimmy) a few years later

    But the film soon leaves our bobbies behind as it's American Army Captain Steve Cochran who's going to pound the London streets, his revolver at the ready. Steve's stomping off to get it here as Vivian Matalon gets it in the neck from Sergeant Ryck Rydon

    A stramash at the home of Lizabeth Scott brings out Pat Halpin and Jack Dearlove to rubberneck

    And among the reporters wanting to quiz her on why she's got her hair in such an unflattering style is Bob E. Raymond (right)

    Young Jon Whiteley is being hunted for being dubbed with an American accent. Basil Dignam ("Bert") and Fred Johnson ("Fred") are two of the coppers on his trail

    Jon's now on the trail of a ham sandwich and hot chocolate and following him is a hazy and broken Ted Carroll

    As Jon drools over the spaghetti-eaters, Johnny Rossi gives him a hard cheese look

    As he's ushered inside, little Jon fails to see big Robin Burns passing by

    Unfortunately, Beldon's Restaurant patron Richard Goolden is curious about what Jon has in his trouser pocket

    Wisely Jon skedaddles across Blackfriars Bridge, despite attempts by John Adams to stop him.

    It's the turn now of Steve Cochran to conduct his subtle investigations. The credited but unattributed Felix Felton as Oscar Smithson is first up to receive his gentle art of persuasion. Nice to see Felix has a family portrait on the wall

    Now it's Myrtle Reed who gets the benefit of Steve's wit and wisdom

    Then at the Pigalle nightspot, could this be Shirley Anne Field momentarily admiring his Brylcreem?

    Well, they might enlist dodgy callgirls there, but at least they also employ Rex Garner as a waiter

    It's Nicole Maurey who's been directed to Steve practicing his Godfather impression. And quite possibly Paul Phillips by the pillar

    That pillar of the community Philip Stewart is having his sleep disturbed

    Even more pillars on view here as we see Jon still on the run from newspaper seller Jimmy Charters

    Arthur Lovegrove back again on the tea stall with Denis Shaw, in a sympathetic role for once, tucks into a sausage roll with Jon

    Now it's the turn of John H. Watson to have a questionable close encounter with Jon

    There's definitely a nasty accident now with concerned Londoners including Emil Stemmler, John H. Watson again (note the ear) and Manny Michael, not yet crying like a baby.

    The Naked Edge (1961) is an engaging did-he didn't he thriller, this was covered by Gerald way back in 2010 but our knowledge of background stars has improved immensley since then. George Radcliffe (Gary Cooper) is an American living and working in Britain, his work colleague Jason Roote (Martin Boddey) is murdered and robbed of �60k in his office late one night, the only other people in the workplace at the time are George and alcoholic employee Donald Heath (Ray McNally), George states in court that he saw someone running away with the loot, when pressed by Mr Wrack the prosecution lawyer (Peter Cushing) he said he thought it was probably Donald, the Jury convict. in court we see Pat Halpin as a barrister for the prosecution, Frederick Kelsey as the judge's clerk (IMDb has this as Middleton Woods, he could be in it as i am not familiar with this actor but Fred is definitely the clerk), policemen in court Vernon Duke and John Adams/Bill Rooney, the spectators include John Smart, Otto Fries, Muriel Greenslade, the Pat Hagan lookalike and in the balcony Robert Vossler also an older gent that usually wears a monocle (not Rusty) who i am hoping will become an Unknown Male candidate.
    On the Jury is a younger prematurely balding man who i also hope to become a UM candidate. In the lobby we see Ernest Blythe and as a P.C. Max Latimer the stuntman * ( see note at the end of the article), outside the court photographer is the Frank Maher lookalike. Five years later and an old mislaid blackmail letter professing to have evidence that George is the real killer gets his wife Martha (Deborah Kerr) suspicious. George and his wife visit a restaurant the maitre d is Andre Charisse and customers include John More, Norman Fisher, Tony Mendleson and possibly Terry Sartain. In the street Fred Davis is a passerby and outside the bookshop Colin McKenzie is a browser, inside the bookshop is one of my most wanted, an asian gent in Sikh style turban and black beard (not Ishaq Bux).

    * ​Max Latimer
    It appears there are two , the experienced character actor with prominent cleft chin, most of the only listed Max Latimer credits at IMDb will be him. He is the actor illustrated under that name at Aveleyman and at MovieDude he is Unnamed Extra 44,48 & 91 in Left Right and Centre and UE27 at Carry on Jack. Max Latimer is the stuntman/background actor who plays the henchman in Diamonds are Forever also in The Avengers - The Medicine Man, can anyone confirm this or is it mistaken identity ?

    I would like to recommend Scott Palmer's The FILMS OF ALISTAIR MACLEAN it has a wealth of information on Alastair's films, is profusely illustrated with stills and promotional material , posters and lobby cards from around the world, the British films listed have extensive uncredited cast lists, in particular The Guns of Navarone (1961) lists one hundred and twenty three cast members. The only one i can add is Harry Phipps as a guest at the greek wedding also at the wedding is the Richard Gregory lookalike and Dave's most wanted with the protruding chin. The german soldier who finds the rat on the big gun is the Michael Dempsey lookalike. I am not familiar with all the uncredited names so feasibly these unknowns could be among the cast list.

    The Monster of Highgate Ponds (1961) is a Halas and Batchelor production for the Childrens Film Foundation, apparently their only live action film aside from one advert. A few of the prominent speaking parts are not credited including the childrens parents Stanley Morgan and Jan Holden. Brother and sister Sophie and David (Rachel Clay and Michael Wade) are brought a large egg as a gift from their uncle Dick (Ronald Howard), it hatches and quickly grows into a friendly Dragon/Dinosaur, fair ground owners Sam and Bert (Frederick Piper and Michael Balfour) attempt to capture the'monster' as a fairground attraction. The monster causes a bit of mayhem when scared women bathers run away leading to Park Warden Bruce Wightman colliding with the ladies bathing attendant Angela Baddeley. The hapless Bert and Sam manage to lure the monster into a stolen truck they are pursued by cops Tony Thawnton, Joe Wadham and Tony Adams/Bill Rooney. The motorbike police are probably the Silk brothers but it not easy to be sure.

    Philly-Thank you for your kind words, and for your great sightings. Keep up the good work. And yes, that WAS Jack and Jeff Silk in the Monster of Highgate Ponds-I spoke to both of them some years ago.
