James Doohan?


Was just watching this on television and couldn't back up, but it looked like one of the cops (towards the end - after the pull the guys from the car wreck) may have been James Doohan. This would have been a little early for him, but it would have only been a bit part (just a few seconds on screen) and certainly uncredited.

It would be great if someone can confirm either way!

Don't think so. iMDb lists his first acting role as Actor's Studio TV series in 1950. But I saw a couple other familiar faces in this movie--Konstantin Shayne, who played the pawn shop owner Ike Weber, was the bookstore owner Pop Leibel in Vertigo, and Helene Thimig, who played the Sister Nurse in the jail, was Madame Kyra in Isle of the Dead, which coincidentally TCM showed earlier this same day. She even wore the same kind of headgear in both movies, which is probably why I recognized her. That and her amazing voice.
