Neither Aveley or Movie Dude have any appearances and so far trawling through the 'Sighted' thread on Britmovie, I havn't found any either.
    Perhaps this was when he was working as a dance instructor?
    No I don't and it's something I've wondered about for a while. Maybe Scott Palmer has some information on this?

    In my own records I only know of about 60 or 70 films John Tatum made between 1950 and 1956. Like the other well-known pros of his era, he probably did at least 25 or 30 films a year every year. I'm certain of this because the people I spoke to who kept diaries followed that same pattern. And of course Tatum was Trevor Howard's stand for over 40 years, so he would have been in nearly every film Trevor Howard made (certainly all the ones made in England).

    Scott or Gerald, do either of you know when John worked up until?
    The last credit I've found is the Armchair Thriller one from 1980, but I'm sure he probably carried on working well into his 70's.

    He's apparently in Chaplin, as late as 1992.

    Sitcom appearances

    As a police driver in Episode 4 of Alcock and Gander (later titled 'Pontoon'):



    Transmitted 26th June 1972. I'm afraid I don't recognise his colleague.

    Movie Dude-sized alternative:




    Just 8 days later, John was back on ITV playing an umpire in
    the Father, Dear Father episode Unaccustomed As I Am:



    With guest star Leslie Phillips as the bowler about to cause injury to batsman Patrick Cargill.

    And here he is, in trademark pose, facing down Kenneth Connor:

    I'd say he is a Galaxian Guard.
