    Oh, very funny, Gerald! Joy Webster WAS quite a girl.....

    Fortune is a Woman (1957), otherwise known as She Played With Fire, but playing uncredited in this one:

    Peeking between Jack Hawkins and Malcolm Keen is secretary Rosalind Knight, who later gets another scene and a line or two

    For whom the Lutine Bell tolls, Jack Hawkins consults the Lloyds Caller, who is Ben Williams

    Rogue builders in situ as Jack Hawkins, Dennis Price and Ian Hunter encounter Mr. Egbert, played by Michael ("oh, that'll have to come down, sir") Peake

    When Jack decides to look up Greta Gynt (well someone has to do it), he encounters her maid Eileen Way

    And when he gets back to Lloyds to consult Patrick Holt, Jack doesn't see chubby Jim Tyson marching across in the background

    Time for a party, and Jack is introduced to Bill Nagy by John Phillips


    And it's that bloody gatecrasher right at the back, dear old Victor Harrington

    But every party needs a surprise guest and it's Pauline Chamberlain in the middle as Jack makes his excuses for not knowing her surname

    Then finally, hair we are as porter George A. Cooper, with a little more on top than we usually see, investigates rumblings in the upstairs apartments.

    Rejoining the battle in the greenwood with "Brother Battle", another in THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD:


    As Brother Battle himself (the wonderful Francis de Wolff) is hauled before the Sheriff, surely the soldier on the left is Arthur Lowe looking as petulant as usual


    Then as Richard Greene and Victor Woolf formulate their plans, in on the deliberations is George Hilsdon.

    Another of THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD, "My Brother's Keeper", and as Lord Carl Bernard looks miserable and Sheriff Alan Wheatley gazes longingly at the new Maid Marian, played by Patricia Driscoll:


    The guest behind the Sheriff looks like a gaping Philip Stewart.

    In a bit of perverse crediting, Victor Woolf (who is often omitted from the cast list) is shown in his usual role as Derwent in the end credits, but he doesn't actially appear in this one. But it is lovely to see Virginia Maskell playing the Biblical Eve in Friar Tuck's play.

    It's a Wonderful World (1956) is about the world of (then) popular music, but in the wonderful world of restaurants:

    It looks like head waiter Paddy Smith is already on telephone duty as Harold Lang heads for the bar

    And it might be Eden Fox as one of Paddy's waiters (there a quite a few lookalikes on waiting duties in this restaurant!)

    Later, in the wonderful world of critics:

    While George Cole tries to persuade Bernard Rebel and Harold Lang of the brilliance of his reverse music, in the background it appears to be John Wilder scowling disbelievingly, as well he might.

    Oil Drum Lane comes to Sherwood:


    When Jason played by Harry H. Corbett arrives in the greenwood, he encounters Will played by George Hilsdon


    Then as well as encountering Archie Duncan and Richard Greene as the man himself, there's outlaw Max Faulkner also to deal with. Max gets some lines, but no credit.

    From THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD episode "The Angry Village".

    George Hilsdon now coming thick and fast:


    Firstly, he's enjoying his wine and song (not women I fear) down the Merry Men Club with Alexander Gauge, Richard Greene, Archie Duncan and Victor Woolf



    Then he's trying to win favour down the New Church Club (and playing a bearded mason now to boot) with caddish villain Charles Gray trying to dodge the collection and a disguised Master Greene, with Philip Ray peeping in at the back.

    "The Mark" (of the Hilsdon), another of THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD.

    Next up for THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD is "The Bride of Robin Hood", and it's not Maid Marian (now billed as just "Marian", so I'm a bit worried about what she and Robin have been up to. Last time that happened Marian 1 O'Farrell turned into Marian 2 Driscoll). Anyway, down the Blue Boar Inn:


    It looks like it's Max Faulkner on the left quenching his thirst observed by semi-regular Simone Lovell and at the window, very regular Richard Greene


    Now starting to be regular outlaw, there's George Hilsdon again on the left with John Baker and Victor Woolf on the right. Between John and Victor, it's the sadly recently-departed Peter Halliday playing Alfred. At the time, Peter had Blue Boar connections as he was married to Simone Lovell.

    "To Be A Student" is the ambition of Derek Waring in THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD, but in Sir William's kitchens:


    Derek is grabbed by the bearded Rolfe, one of many, many, many, many roles taken by Paul Eddington in this series, but also here by Guy Standeven, whose ambition maybe was to be a soldier.

    I Was Monty's Double (1958) has a large cast list, just just to add a couple more:


    Bang in the middle, second row looks like Philip Stewart. In front, American General Macdonald Parke looks as fed up as usual


    And when John Mills and M. E. Clifton James go to the pictures, they are so engrossed, they don't realise Reg Thomason is sitting behind them.

    Sorry, Christmas in March, but it's THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD and calendars weren't very accurate then. In "The Christmas Goose":


    Sir Leon's serfs look as though their goose has been cooked as they gaze despondently while Jack Watling sings a jolly Christmas ballad. The dark-haired serf is Gerry Judge and the bailiff looking on is Paul Eddington. The episode's main guest star, just visible there at the far right, is Jon Whiteley. His mother Stella is played by Anne Firth.
    cornershop, the serf sitting next to Gerry is the extra I mentioned who is at the head of the crowd in your A King in New York screencaps in the Who are these people? thread.

    Back to "The Angry Villager" for THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD and here's a very angry villager indeed:

    Ted Carroll ready to string up Little John and Robin Hood

    Then "The Rivals", not by Sheridan, but by Leslie Poynton, and in the greenwood:

    No stunts involved, but it's surely Frank Maher listening in as Friar Tuck tells of his woe to the aforesaid Little John and Robin Hood


    And it might be a bit hair-raising in the dungeon when the Sheriff suggests another group to rival the aforesaid Little John and Robin Hood. George Hilsdon, third from left, certainly thinks so. Michael Ashwin, Carl Bernard and Colin Broadley get all the credit.

    Next up for THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD is "The Profiteer". There's a good guest cast in this one, including Gordon Jackson and John Longden, plus:


    Lucky old George Hilsdon having an ogle at Barbara Archer, who I remember best as Inga, a welcoming sight at the inn for Peter Cushing in Dracula which was made around the same time as this episode


    Paul Eddington in another of his countless roles in this series comes upon a curiously uncredited Nigel Davenport. He went thataway.

    Regular Derwent played by Victor Woolf gets a scene in this episode, but no credit. Check your contract, Vic.

    Extravagant though Beau Brummell (1954) may be, but not extravagant enough to give credit to:

    Well, it looks like Fred Wood on the far left as Beau is tackled by a soon-to-be Friar Tuck himself, Alexander Gauge, as James Hayter, a former Friar Tuck, looks on

    It's a racing certainty that's Victor Harrington marching past as Paul Rogers and Beau discuss fetlocks. Another Victor appearance in this film is on Victor's own thread

    Beau defends the honour of two doggies from the vicious striped tights of Denis Shaw

    'e's orf down the club, and the bewigged member smack in the middle looks like Guy Standeven. Guy even stands in a moment when the Prince of Wales appears

    As Beau's brummell fades, 'e allez to Calais, and the French monsieur on the right is Howard Lang. Howard shortly after dons a chapeau and, dubbed, heckles the king, much hastening Beau's expiry.

    Heading back to Sherwood:


    The outlaw in the left background I think could be Ned Lynch again


    While the outlaw just over Richard Greene's shoulder certainly gives George Hilsdon another notch on his bow


    These screencaps are from THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD episode "Knight Errant" and the errant knight is portrayed by a jaunty William Lucas. When Sheriff Alan Wheatley rushes in on him down the Blue Boar Inn, the soldier on left looks a lot like a young Royston Farrell. A pretty full-on fight scene follws.

    The Man Who Finally Died (1962) and some of the men who are finally identified:


    Frank Sieman as a hotel receptionist


    Shown on the IMDb list, but with no role attribution, Brian Wilde as the Stuttgart Graveyard Supervisor


    Likewise for Martin Boddey, who is a police officer having a bit of bother with a sausage dog, which he refers to as a "brute"


    When police sergeant Nigel Green gets the job of disinterring a body, Larry Taylor helps him out


    And when a quick getaway is needed, it's Volkswagen driver Ivor Salter who is called upon.

    Another notable absentee from the film's cast list is Alfred Burke, who sadly only gets two or three small scenes in the film.

    THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD assures us it's "The Healing Hand":


    Well, I'm not sure what the impish Michael Ripper is doing with his hand here, but it's soldier Gerry Judge who is being healed. Two down from him is George Hilsdon and next to him seems to be Paddy Ryan. George and Gerry can be seen earlier in the episode as two patrons of the Blue Boar Inn.
    James Ellis is credited in this episode as "Thin Man", but the only likely candidate for the Jimmy we know is as another soldier who gets touched up by Doctor Ripper.
    It does look as though Richard Greene is doubled in this and several other episodes by Terry Yorke.

    It's "One Man's Meat" for THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD and luckily it's not the title of the preceding episode screencap, especially as here it looks like Paddy Ryan again and he's playing a character called "Dick":


    Paddy had no stunts here, except having to supposedly eat Robin Bailey's foul concoction and Gary Raymond isn't too enamoured of it either.
