    Thanks for posting this. I also find it hard to believe it's 30 years since I watched this.

    Does anyone know why Jake D'Arcy isn't there. I can understand Alex Norton's absence - he lives in London - and I think I got most of the names.

    Robert Buchanan, Billy Greenlees, not sure of lady in check dress or the lady with glasses, Dee Hepburn (who looks great), JG Sinclair, Claire Grogan, Dave Anderson and Douglas Sannachan.

    Quite wisely they didn't mention 'Gregory's Two Girls'!!!

    The lady in the checked dress is Caroline Guthrie who played Carol, the first girl Gregory meets on his "date" with Dorothy, who takes him to the chip shop and then leaves him with Margo.



    The lady with the glasses I think is the film's producer Davina Belling.



    As for Jake D'Arcy dont know about him not being there.

    Thanks for that steereomono.



    Looking at the slideshow, Dee Hepburn seems to have aged well, despite the addition of a few pounds.



    ...and it was a nice touch to invite the penguin too!

    It's a mystery why Jake's not there, he last appeared in the Outnumbered Christmas 2009 special. He's a Glasgow man and appeared in Still Game many times.

    Thanks for the info. She too has aged well. Thanks once more for the original post.

    Trivia - at least three of the above people have appeared in 'Taggart', some more than once.

    Yes, but why isn't Bill Forsyth there?

    Thanks everyone for your posts. Very informative. A much loved film. 30 years have flown by.

    ( Mr Cosmo...pic was taken outside what was your place many moons ago of course...)



    I hope Bill Forsyth returns to film-making soon. He seemed quite embittered in an interview I read last year. I'm sure he's living back in the UK.



    Meanwhile...

    Bill Forsyth was in a nice documentary called Scotland on Screen presented by Alan Cumming.



    Bill was also taken back to Pennan where he made Local Hero by Mark Kermode on an edition of The Culture Show. They screened the film for a local audience.

    Ah memories. That post tells me you must be of a certain age.

    How so? They all look grand. And Robert Buchanan might not have made his mark on Hollywood but Pallywood seems to have made its mark on him.

    Robert Buchanan works now as a technician/caretaker at the Tollbooth Arts Centre and Theatre in Stirling, Mrs Bruiser has contact with him from time to time.



    He's brilliant in Bill Forsyth's first film "That Sinking Feeling", but try and get it on video with the original voices and not the recent DVD with the international dub with the wide variety of regionally different "pan loaf" Scots accents.

    I have n't seen it for years now but "That Sinking Feeling" is my favourite Forsyth film and one of my old time favourite Brit comedies. I remember the first time I saw it with my Mum and Dad years ago all three of us laughing long and hard long after it was finished. A Great Film.

    Just thought any Bill Forsyth fans might be interested to know - the Robert Burns Film Theatre in Dumfries is showing Bill Forsyth's That Sinking Feeling Mon 3rd May 2010, followed by a discussion with Rab Buchanan, as part of the Dumfries Film Festival (see Dumfries Film Festival)

    Sounds like fun - although I bet it's the dubbed one again.

    Depressing that I'm thirty years older than when I first saw it. Thirty years since I was in the 6th Form chasing girls and drinking as much as I liked without fear of a stinking hangover.

    I know - but then the Bush and Blair governments created this "climate of fear".

    I laughed so much at That Sinking Feeling that it hurt.



    There is just something good about Scots comedy like Rab C and Still Game.
