Thank you so much for posting those screen caps of Roger Delgado! :D Please, do you have any more of him?

Anonymous

I do have some more from the same episode of Espionage, but they’re very similar, really.  However, he also turned up in The Power Game S2 (1966/7), so I should screencap that presently as well!  (It’s not as pretty a source, though, as an ITC show.)

Girl on Approval gif

Probably too late now for the person who wanted this about a year and a half ago, but I finally got around to ripping a few clips from Girl on Approval with James Maxwell & Rachel Roberts (1961). I’ll upload some bits soon, but in the meantime, a gif:

The clip’s here, but the gif’s better, because they’re actually talking about missing buttons and scissors. (It’s not a romantic film!)

Right at the end of Carry On Nurse, there’s a moment where Kenneth Connor’s character is reunited with his son - being played by his real life young son Jeremy.

I think people must have been accusing Alfred Burke of having the face of a saint, librarian or aristocratic confidence trickster again, because I fear that beard is all his own work.  (He’s still so wonderfully expressive, though.)

Maybe sudden fame following S1 of Public Eye drove him to it.   (“I’m not Frank Marker - look I’ve got a beard!”)

More from The Power Game (ATV 1965/66):

Colin Townley (James Maxwell) tells Susan Weldon (Rosemary Leach) he’s about to be indiscreet, to which she says, “Not you, not even with a drink that size!” and he says, “Thank you for the opportunity I needed.”  And I don’t know whether he means he needed an excuse for the indiscretion or to have the drink or both, but nobody else in this show needs excuses. *amused*

He says nameboards are for the obscure, the seldom remembered and often forgotten… Do you have one?

- Don Henderson (Jack Watling) to Kenneth Bligh (Peter Barkworth) in The Power Game (1965, Episode 2 “Lady For a Knight”.)  It’s like this all the time, although this line is still one of the best.

That time James Maxwell held his own hand for a change.  (The Power Game, ATV 1965.)

"You’ve changed, haven’t you, over the years?  What was it - age or shame?"

This is apparently how James Maxwell goes about convincing people they just don’t want to live any more.  (Espionage. 1963/4)
