    Nice job, Cornershop--child actors are always the toughest to ID, to my mind, so it's always nice when you can actually put a name to one!

    I can see the resemblance but I don't think it is her.

    Image3-1_zps451f1972.jpg

    There were two smart elderly ladies that used to be sent us for up market scenes they nearly always came together.
    Their names were Mabel Etherington (Hetherington?) & Muriel Greenslade I am pretty sure the one in the photo is Mabel but I can�t be certain.

    Mabel Etherington is (uncredited) in An Inspector Calls (1954), which I don't have. Can anyone check it out?

    Sorry to see your identifications of obscure crew members haven't been appreciated, Aged 40 (another thread). How did you recognise them?

    A Mabel Etherington has turned up at the Express archives. The lady mentioned
    in this report would have been born around 1897, so there is a good chance ...

    Daily Express, 13th December 1935




    "Wife of a man in a good position" (). A politician maybe? If she is MovieDude's
    Lady with the Hat then Ms. Etherington progressed to stealing scenes in later life!

    Thanks for your appreciation Cornershop

    I recognised them because I worked as an Assistant Director at MGM on many films during the 60's

    Excellent work everyone. We are another step towards naming this lady. I'm still quite amazed she remains unknown! Keep it up folks. I'm sure we will get her eventually.

    I have just had some excellent news. According to Aged AD and Fran Hunter and indeed to Scott Palmer my most wanted unknown lady actress #11 is indeed Mabel Etherington. Fantastic work all round every one.

    To celebrate the arrival of Mabel into the known fold, here she glitteringly is in her latest "Sighted" appearance, as a reception guest in the episode of MAN IN A SUITCASE called "Mabel that Glitters", no, I mean "All that Glitters":


    She's in good company in this scene, with the likes of Tony Mendleson, Juba Kennerley, Edward Underdown, Barbara Shelley, Michael Goodliffe, Kathleen St. John and Ned Lynch.

    I've watched that episode twice. Apart from Jim Tyson, I don't recall noticing any of those extras. They weren't (as) familiar to me then.

    Re: Mabel Etherington

    Still trying to get used to this lady at last being identified. Always ready, willing and Mabel to catch our attention, she's
    turned up again - as a spectator at the vintage car race scene in Crossplot (1969). With Roger Moore & Claudie Lange:



    Is that Muriel Greenslade next to her, Aged40? Seconds later, Arthur Goodman appears (see 'Hummies' Favourite Extras').

    Thanks Philly. A few of those have been pointed out by others. I will have to take a day of to do some repairs soon. At couple of those films have to be done again. (perhaps more). I know I have missed a few from Campbell's Kingdom.

    Well spotted Cornershop I'm sure it is

    Thanks, Aged 40

    Is the lady next to Aitch one of your subjects, MovieDude? After years of wondering, I've identified her as Vi(olet) Kane:


    This is an old capture from the Steptoe and Son episode Porn Yesterday (1974). She was the first in a long list of uncredited names Gerald gave us at one of Harry Fielder's threads. Vi has a credited role in The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin and I've just found her apperance.

    My interest was sparked when she turned up in another old screencap I was looking at, from Please Sir!, with Barbara Mitchell and Patrick Connor. As it happens, those two were in an episode of For the Love of Ada I watched last night and will feature in my next post at the latter's thread.

    Regarding Fred WOODS-I spoke to him on several occasions. HE TOLD ME HIS NAME WAS WOODS. W-O-O-D-S. It also appeared in several casting directories as Woods. I think the man himself should know how to spell his own name. I hope this once and for all gets rid of the confusion.

    She looks very familiar Cornershop. I can't find any images of her in my collection. But I bet I have one somewhere. I'm afraid she looks a much like many middle aged ladies and with such a short filmography it doesn't suprise me that I can't find her. I will keep an eye out for her now and use your image as a guide.

    Sorry to add to the confusion Scott, Fred's daughter Sandra Stewart (nee Wood) posted at his thread in February and said the family name was Wood, he undoubtably told you he is name was Woods, could there have been a different Fred Wood in the business and he used Woods to avoid confusion?
