    The Frank Foley in Operation Crossbow was indeed a real RAF PJI (parachute jump instructor). All I know is that he was Irish and was probably in the RAF some 40 years. One ex-para mentions he was still at Abingdon in 1975. The bollocking he gives the actors on the para course could only come from a real sergeant!

    No. 5 looks like Peter Halliday again, MovieDude:



    In the UFO episode A Question of Priorities (1969)

    The Indian man looks like S.V. Chandra-something

    Glad to be of help - perhaps twice. I've remembered the Indian actor I was thinking of ...



    S.V. Chowdhary in Ghost Squad - Hong Kong Story (1961)

    And if you remember, Peter was one of the Unnamed Extras I identified in The Black Windmill (yet to be renamed!):



    Left to right - Del Baker, Paul Humpoletz, Derek Lord, Hilary Sesta and Peter Halliday.

    And #27 is Nancy Gabrielle, not Jesse Robins!

    Thanks cornershop--I have Chowdhary as one of my own unknowns. Knew he was credited in something, but couldn't remember what!

    Yes. Thanks Cornershop. I thought I recognized Chowdary from somewhere. And now you mention it, I do remember the others you ID'd. They are still on the to do list. I havn't reached that far yet. The are quite a way down I'm afraid, but they are there and I will get to them eventually.

    I think 1 is Dave Griffiths and 2 is John Abineri.

    I noticed the Jessie Robins error, she is in The Black Windmill though.

    Yes. She's the large woman who's surprised to find Michael Caine (hiding) under her seat on the coach. A nod to Magical Mystery Tour?

    Unknown Male No. 49 in 'This Sporting Life' (1962)

    On the left. The non-obscured actors are (l-r) Alan Badel, a Craig Douglas lookalike, Richard Harris and Harry Markham:



    Rugby League star Richard has just been presented with his first cheque. I think I spotted Jack Armstrong in this scene.


    A closer view of our subject and, more importantly, Alan Badel Does anyone know who the young man is?:



    #49 in The Saint episode The Latin Touch the same year:




    I watched this not long ago. Was it a real band? They also appeared in the last episode of The Sentimental Agent, Box of Tricks.

    It wouldn't surprise me Cornershop, if it was a real band. Certainly, actors seem to be multi-talented, playing a musical instrument, singing, dancing, etc. He seems to be holding a pick and fingering a jazz chord, so he looks like he knows his way around a Guitar.

    Looks like Arnold Schulkes.

    I'm not sure. The hairstyles look similar:



    Arnold Schulkes in Murder Ahoy (1964)

    I am sure I spotted Mabel Etherington, another 'Most Wanted' subject, in This Sporting Life as well, but you'll have to
    wait til next week for confirmation. It's taking ages to go through this film. In the meantime (to quote Georgie Fame) ...

    Unnamed Extras in 'Ooh ... You Are Awful' (1972)



    L-R: Hedger Wallace (Groom)?, Julie Crosthwaite (Bride), Penny Spencer?, Ivor Spencer ('The Toastmaster'), Frank Coda

    A good match for Hedger, in The Dirty Dozen:



    Hope you - and others - agree with those, Movie Dude.

    Definitely not Arnold Schulkes. I wish we knew who the bloke on the right is too.

    Very well spotted Cornershop. Certainly agree with Hedgar Wallace, Julie Crosthwaite and Frank Coda. I've never heard of Ivor Wallace so I will take your word for that one. I'm not so sure about Penny Spencer. I think this might well be Anna Gilchrist. It certainly looks a little like her and she's credited but I can't be sure.

    Hello again, Movie Dude. Ivor Spencer was a real-life Toastmaster, and Butler, as well as Extra. I remember him popping
    up on TV in his uniform several times, including This Morning. Here's the sadly-late Ivor's appearance in sitcom Agony:



    In the episode From Here to Maternity (1981) with Maureen Lipman and Jane Sherwin, wife of Dr. Who producer Derrick.

    This will hopefully convince you, Movie Dude!:



    A cropped Ivor in Ooh You Are Awful & Agony.


    I found out earlier that Yvonne Paul is one of the 'Slave Girls' in The Magic Christian. Is she among this selection?:



    I obviously had to leave out the topless girls who work for Raquel Welch.


    And is the bald man your 'Unknown Male #48', in Charlie Bubbles (1967)?:



    Dining with George Holdcroft (I hope). Behind him are Colin Blakely, as Smokey Pickles, and the mild-mannered Peter Sallis.

    That's definitely number 48--have seen him pop up everywhere lately. He smiles about as often as John Tatum. I'm pretty sure that's George Holdcroft, but he has one or two doppelgangers, so can't say for sure.
