    No Time for Tears: I would also mention that in the pantomime band, the Patrick Durkin lookalike is on trombone instead of plucking his double bass as usual.

    With Regard to the child with Aileen being her son, BMD records indicate that Roger Lewis was born in the last quarter of 1943. So I think it's unlikely to be Aileen's son, as the boy in the film looks younger than the 13/14 year old Roger.

    Just as a test to see if this post will remain now and forever:


    Star of Now and Forever (1956) Janette Scott with uncredited Maggie the maid, her mother Thora Hird. Pamela Brown plays Janette's vache of a mum in the film.

    Thanks for that info. Hopefully another Aileen sighting coming up soon.

    And here is Aileen Lewis doing her Now and Forever appearance:


    This time she's with Pat Hagan and Mabel Etherington is also in the audience at this school concert. The teachers in front are kindly Kay Walsh and serpentine Sonia Dresdel


    In this wider shot, we can see John More is also there to squirm at Janette Scott's solo


    Looking like he's also bursting into song is Vernon Gray, but he's just being his usual drippy self. The barmen in charge of product placement are Louis Matto and Victor Platt


    They're all at a twee town dance and Pat Halpin looks like he's happy to be there


    However, Len Llewellyn quickly blurs by hoping he won't be spotted


    Terry Sartain nevertheless makes certain he looks straight at the camera


    But old hand Jack Mandeville has wisely decided to sit it out as Tony Castleton gives it a big hand


    Out in the car park, there's a bit of canoodling going on involving Tony again, albeit wearing a different tie, Harry Van Engel and David Lodge with their respective girlfriends. All the chaps get angry lines to yell out to Vernon and Janette


    Our duo prefer to continue to drip and go to watch a performance of Romeo and Juliet. Understandably not playing those roles but staying in the audience are Roy Everson and Mabel Etherington again. I think Aileen Lewis is also there in the balcony establishing shots.

    The latter part of the film features plenty of police after Vern and Jan elope and among them:


    Charles Saynor isn't happy when Vern's car horn continues its rendition of "My dog has fleas". Ronald Squire plays a friendly waiter


    Brian Wilde isn't wild about going after the drippy duo


    Frank Atkinson is more dramatic as Toke Townley and a curiously moustached young man look on


    IMDb imaginatively describes the role taken by Noel Coleman as "Man", so it's a relief to see his range has stretched to play the police radio operator


    Jack Warner's in this, but not as P.C. Dixon: he's got the considerably less rewarding job of being Vern's dad. Pamela Brown is Janette's mother and the inspector at the desk never turns round, but what we see and hear of him reveals it's Ewen Solon


    More dramatic moments for these two, the driver on the right being Joe Wadham.

    The cast list at the end includes Irene Handl as "Middle-Aged Woman" and though there are several cameos in the film (David Kossoff, Bryan Forbes and Hattie Jacques for example), I never spotted dear old Irene.

    Thrilled to see a new credit for Dame Thora in Now and Forever, Gerald. In the second theatre audience, two behind Mabel is her companion Muriel Greenslade in a green hat.

    Thanks, philly. She and Mabel never looked young, but in 1952, There Was a Young Lady and here are some of the gentlemen within her nagging sphere:


    I think this is Gerald Rex, an office boy who earns the wrath of Y.L. (Dulcie Gray)


    Jack Sharp as a bemused bus conductor. He's so bemused by Dulcie he later turns up in country pub scenes where the barmaid is likely Janet Butler


    If Dulcie Gray appears in this, so must Michael Denison and here he is with Charlie, Duke of Chiddingford, aka Bill Shine on the terrace on the Houses of Parliament. The chap with sticky-out ears at the table behind them I reckon is Jack Mandeville


    London must've been short of passersby that day because in different locations we get the same folk striding along, including Jack Armstrong second left and Victor Harrington with The Sun under his arm


    Little Kenneth Connor needs a lift from big Ernest Blythe


    And in the pub scenes, thirsty Ernie Rice appears


    With even thirstier Jim Tyson and Manny Michael behind Mike and Ken.

    One of 1930's Night Birds:


    Seems to be Danny Green in the middle, observed by theatrically suave Jack Raine.

    Another film co-written by Miles Malleson and for which IMDb lists him also in an uncredited role. Another film in which I couldn't spot him.

    Dave seeing things, part XXXVVVIIII:

    !!
    Any possibility this could be Victor Harrington in the opening scene of Seven Sinners (1936)?

    Pre-empting any comments on my dumbness, it's probably Bill Hodge, if anyone.

    BBC records say that the person playing the doomed Jim, one man and his dog, in the opening sequence of DOCTOR WHO "The Daemons" in 1971 is celebrated animal handler John Holmes:



    This appears to be a contemporary picture of John Holmes:

    So I wonder if Jim is in fact the bushy-eyebrowed and cleft-chinned Tommy Winward??

    Dave's done such a fantastic job on The Millionairess (1960), he should get a million dollars. I, therefore, can only put forward a few cents' worth:


    In Wally Patch's big moment with Sophia Loren, I see Jimmy Charters far right


    And as Dennis Price strikes up a familiar pose, arm and hand and fingers and all, I believe the other three flat caps are on Jim Brady (already sighted), Alf Casha and Len Llewellyn


    In the climatic reception, Norman Fisher is there to witness Miss Loren's amazing headgear (not a flat cap, though).

    Still no sign of Davy Kaye, but in addition to Peter Sellers providing the voice of Sophia's papa, he also supplies the garbled singing for fish curer (kippers like salmon) Alfie Bass.

    The guy stood next to Norman Fisher in the Millionairess is a prolific 60's actor I call the Gerik Schjelderup lookalike.

    Yes, philly, I thought it was Gerik for a minute.

    Damaris Hayman looks rather pleased to use her reticule to knock out this Morris Dancer on his bald noggin:


    Peter Diamond goes out for the count in DOCTOR WHO "The Daemons" Episode Four (tx: 12.06.1971).

    That sure looks like Tommy Winward to me in Doctor Who. Probably Holmes was the animal trainer on set and the production notes were vague.

    The Millionairess. Phooey. . .thanks for the additions!

    Let's be happy as there's lots and lots and lots of background artists to see in Let's Be Happy (1956):


    Inheriting a "vast fortune" (about $4,000) from her grandfather, Vera-Ellen heads for Europe and booking in at New York International Airport, Elstree are Pat Halpin in glasses and hat (which he politely lifts when he's finished at check-in having packed everything himself) and Muriel Greenslade. Like many in this film, Muriel turns up several times later in various scenes


    Alfred Burke is on duty and is that the real Terry Rendell on the right?


    On the Air France desk with Alfred is Fred Stroud. Fred moonlights as an Edinburgh waiter and opera attendee too


    As V-E assures Alfred she never left her bags unattended, Tony Castleton gets a chance to check the camera is on


    When our heroine gets into the plane, one of the stewards hopefully not about to argue over how bottled water is stored is Neil Hallett


    Her steward is Vernon Greeves and one of her fellow passengers is Hyma Beckley, who probably get the most appearances in this film: short in stature perhaps, but big in roles as he turns up in just about every scene!


    Muriel is not travelling alone, as Mabel Etherington is on board too, but accompanying another lady. V-E's accomplice is Tony Martin


    Once at Paris International Airport, Elstree, Horsey-Face is there to snatch some luggage from Len Llewellyn before Len becomes an Edinburgh hotel porter, etc.


    George Curtis is also disembarking . . .


    . . . and Jack Sharp is there to snatch his luggage.

    Unusual for background actors but George Hilsdon was taken up to near Clitheroe Lancashire to play a policeman in Whistle Down the Wind (1961) this role has been identified previously, although his first scene is in the police canteen set at Pinewood, sat at an adjacent table is P.C. Arthur Howell. George was prepared to travel it seems, he was a policeman on location in Ipswich in The Angry Silence, the connection there is Bryan Forbes, maybe he was friendly with George. The police on location seem to be "Members of Lancashire Constabulary" although one other copper seems to be a familiar extra (could be wrong maybe a lookalike).

    Pit of Darkness (1961) has already been covered, adding

    Man in Club - Neil Wilson lookalike (UM80)
    Policeman - Jack Silk, Jeff Silk, UM72
