    Some more of THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD and


    Some more of Fred Haggerty taking careful aim


    Though not at Lord Quincy played by Martin Lane, nor at his guard in the foreground played by "rep company member" Victor Woolf, who does get a credit in this episode as Clerk to the Sheriff of Nottingham.

    From "A Year and A Day".

    Getting some persuasion in THE PERSUADERS! from Yutte Stensgaard:



    Rocky Taylor in action, and who could blame him?


    Certainly not Tony Curtis, who decides he wants a piece of the action too as Doug Robinson and Royston Farrell look on enviously


    Unfortunately not fit for all this is Graham Leaman playing a concierge. Graham's later roles had him sitting down and it's quite sad to see him here using crutches


    A later tiff in the gym involves Tony and Doug Robinson again, but here is another heavy played by Terry Walsh. The gentleman all of a blur is Bernard Horsfall. Tony seems to have done all of his own stunts in this scene.

    From "The Morning After".

    There's an "Element of Risk" that I might get some names wrong in this edition of THE PERSUADERS!, but I'm pretty confident:


    That walking past in the background at Heathrow is Maxwell Craig while Shane Rimmer gets grilled by Terry Yorke and Dennis Plenty?


    Then outside we have Cy Town dressed in his Canadian gear and June Ritchie in the pink


    And when Shane gets taken into protective custody, who better to get him there than regular police drive Joe Wadham?

    The Double Man (1967) is lumbered with a sullen star (twice over!) in the person of Yul Brynner, so more interesting to spot are:


    Guy Standeven I think watching as Mr. B's back attends his son's funeral

    As Yul emotes with a candle and the coffin (he's the one in the middle), suitably sepulchural undertaker Anthony Lang waits in the background

    While the King tries to hide behind his skis, the chap trying to direct him to Siam looks like Martin Lyder

    As things really hot up at Moira Lister's party, it's good to see Pat Gorman is on the guest list. Douglas Muir, looking fetching in his lederhosen, is directing Herr Brynner towards the fun, but I've taken the liberty of editing him out so his glum face doesn't upset the rest of the partygoers

    And finally a bit of a puzzle as the blond chap in the middle just behind Anton Diffring looks very like John Lee, but as this reliable supporting actor is not seen again and has no lines, I wonder if it's not he or his scenes have been edited out?

    Though Man from Tangier (1957) doesn't feature much from Tangier at all, it does feature:

    Guy Standeven as a barber at Victoria Station. His grumpy customer is Emerton Court, who is in fact the title character, but he doesn't have too much to do after this scene; in fact, West Kensington Court appears more prominently later on

    Soon after, we go to a party when effervescent lead Robert Hutton (I jest) encounters a far more effervescent barman Michael Balfour and, on the right, a very effervescent Paddy Ryan, who sadly has no stunts to perform

    Once the party gets going, Robert Hutton has no idea that Martin Lyder is shaking a leg on the dance floor.

    Although this is fast becoming the Guy Standeven Show, here he is again, this time striking a heroic pose for THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD in the episode called "The Hero":


    Sadly, Guy isn't playing the title character, which is an ironic one, with Bill Owen in that role.

    Robert Rietty gets a mention in the main titles for Conspiracy of Hearts (1960), but sadly he's not in the cast list at the end and the IMDb gives him no role attribution:

    So here he is as the unfortunate Italian soldier Emilio Casella who soon finds out that "doing a Nelson" is not a good idea where Nazi camp commandants and their lieutenants are concerned.

    Back into THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD and another potentially heroic - but maybe foolish - pose for an outlaw:


    Fred Haggerty again, this time up a gum tree


    Then looking suitably aghast beside the great Alan Wheatley, Victor Woolf, who plays The Abbot of Whitby in this episode called "The Haunted Mill" (Whitby only 135 miles down the M1 from Nottingham!) doubles as one of the Sheriff's soldiers.

    "The Haunted Mill" also features another Friar Tuck, James Hayter, as Tom the Miller and John Schlesinger as Hale the wild strawberry pie baker.

    Some more men in tights, this time from Siege of the Saxons (1963):

    The soldier in the middle caused some confusion (to me primarily) on this forum in times past, but I think he can be now accurately identified as Bill Brandon. Ronald Howard is the knight on the right

    "In the Village", aka Bray backlot, the soldier striking a pose could well be Billy Dean, while the villager on the right, also in a striking pose, is Maxwell Craig

    Bewigged Ronald Lewis gets the gen from Roland Curram

    "Hey, your wig is better than mine" says vendor Peter Elliott as he eyes up Ron's syrup

    Rustic chieftan The Blacksmith is played by Francis de Wolff (correctly named in the main titles, but called "Francis de Wolfe" at the end), but he can can't go wrong as his henchman on the right - later seen in knight's armour - is an early appearance by Pat Gorman

    Off to Camelot, and the grinning nobleman in the middle is Victor Harrington - unusual to see him laugh - who may be playing the testosteronally-challenged Sir Guy

    And when Ronald Howard has a crowning desire, who best to give him a quizzical look but Fred Wood? The producer must've liked Fred as he also makes an appearance in the end titles when Mr. H gets his credit.

    This screencap, or one very much like it, has been posted before. It's from the episode of THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD called "Outlaw Money":


    It was claimed that the gentleman on the left is Larry Taylor, but it isn't. It looks more like Brian Rawlinson, but it isn't. So who he is remains a mystery, but I'm not sure if it's been clarified who the villagers in the fore and back ground are and I think the first is Jack Taylor and the second is definitely George Spence.

    How about a few faces from The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, as a few of us saw it last night



    That chap in the middle is playing Sgt Hawkins. He is a significant player in Spud's "private army" - but he isn't listed in the credits.
    Does anyone know who he is?

    Park Plaza's lobby at Nettlefold Studios:


    Richard Marner gives instructions to his aide, played by a young George Hilsdon (if there was ever such a thing)


    Then on the way to the Plaza, in Sid James's squad car, the silent sergeant in the back is Edward Dentith.

    From Park Plaza 605 (1953).

    The Master of Ballantrae (1952) is sadly a pretty dull and episodic late entry in the Errol Flynn filmography, but a latest examination gives us:

    Jack Lambert as the Minister of Ballantrae and otter rotter Archie Duncan as a Highlander messenger - authentic Scottish accents at least!

    All at sea by this point and Mr. Bryce would seem to be Jack Taylor and Moultrie Kelsall is Captain McAuley - no authentic Scottish accents as even Mr. K is dubbed

    Then towards the end of the film, there's a braw ceilidh doon at Flynn Caistle. Little brither Anthony Steel greets his faither Felix Aylmer, while propping up the hearth in the broon is Arthur Mullard, who might also appear a few minutes later as an English soldier.

    According to IMDb, Sam Kydd is in this film too in an unattributed role, but I wasn't able to find him.

    A couple of the subjects of Campbell's Kingdom (1957):


    Just above barman John Laurie's head is Canadian workman Jim Brady. Boss Stanley Baker is in the foreground


    Looking a bit stag-gered, on the stairs to Barbara Murray's room, as well as King Dirk, is vassal Michael Collins.

    One actor who appeared in this film according to his CV in Peter Noble's British Film Yearbook was Ronald Millar . He later became a playwright and also a speech writer for Margaret Thatcher. I don't know what he looked like so don't know if it's him though.

    Thanks philly, but does he give any hint as to which role he played? There were hundreds of people in this film
