Before they were famous

Don’t you love it when an actor who later became a star appears in a small role in an old film? I do, I love spotting them. The other evening, I watched The Rebel, a film of 1961 starring Tony Hancock. There were stalwarts of British cinema to be seen: John Le Mesurier, Irene Handl, Dennis Price. Then, in a French café, Oliver Reed, unmistakable, although with only one line. He got a credit, too, as ‘artist in café'.
