    One of the stills has Jack Warner and Marjorie Rhodes. At one time, you could put both names together on the IMDb and come up with the title of the film (if they only made one film together), but that facility doesn't seem to be on there now.

    It is - check down the bottom for 'Credited with'. The film is Those People Next Door, one of the very few 1950s films about the Home Front.

    If you have two actors, you can skip going to the imdb first and just google the actors together. The movie will show up if they only made one together.

    I know the Cap already answered it.


    Sounds like a real snooze:

    The Twiggs are a typical working-class family: Sam (Jack Warner) and Mary (Marjorie Rhodes) are trying to bring their family up in the shadow of the Blitz whilst taking everything in good humour. Their neighbours Joe (Charles Victor) and Emma (Gladys Henson) are constantly in the Twiggs house, borrowing a cup of sugar or using their Anderson shelter and between them the two working class families put the world to rights. But when their daughter falls for an upper class RAF pilot the Twiggs are asked by his mother, Lady Diana Stephens to tell their daughter to call the romance off, as the social gap between the families is too large. Incensed by Lady Diana s offer of money, Sam Twigg throws her out of the house. But events take a sudden turn as the war enters the Twiggs own living room. Will the two families manage to overcome their disdain for each other and let true love find its way?

    Thanks, Captain and fast work, Will. I've no idea who's in the earlier stills, though. They look early 1930s to me.

    Looks a bit Aldwych farce.

    Could be Rookery Nook - IIRC they keep disappearing to play golf in the stage version and that's definitely Tom Walls and Ralph Lynn

    Is the actress on the right Patricia Cutts in the first still? If so, it would be from the same movie.

    Might be but it seems to be one of those films that might as well be lost so I doubt anyone can confirm for certain.

    I was referring to Those People Next Door, but the two girls don't match up. Actually it looks like it might have been fairly amusing based on this clip.

    For the Walls & Lynn ones could it be A Cuckoo in the Nest it seems to be set in an Inn?

    There's a scene in Rookery Nook where the Ralph Lynn character hides a golf club down his trousers, though the exact reason escapes me. However there's quite a few Aldwych farces that haven't been seen for 60 years so who knows? I don't remember any golf in Cuckoo in The Nest but then it's a publicity still so I suppose it doesn't have to be a scene from the actual film

    I know little of these things - they all involve sticks and are utterly pointless

    The first image (with the girl on the bicycle) looks to be wartime as the windows of the far house are taped over. Though strangely, those on the nearer house aren't.

    Steve C explained about the code numbers on the prints, but I don't remember where he did it - here or PaPAS?

    In Those People Next Door, Charles Victor and Gladys Henson are feckless lefties who depend on their reliable Tory neighbours to provide a shelter. So it could well be deliberate...
