Uncredited Wilfrid Brambell?


I'd be surprised if it is .. but .. At the first demonstration, in the front row, one of the worthy gentlemen looks so like Wilfrid Brambell.
It is not in 'uncredited' on this film, and not in his own listing. Also, by 1958, whilt not a star, he was getting credited and named parts .. So I think I'm wrong .. but have a look, see if you agree it looks like him ..

The person you mean is in the second demonstration, not the first. I don't think it's Wilfrid Brambell, because he looks too old. Brambell was only 46 when this film was made, and the actor doesn't seem to be wearing make-up. He looks like Albert Steptoe, but it's not Brambell. Compare the man in 'Corridors' with the credited Brambell in the first two Quatermass series on TV, '1984' also on TV, or as Bill Gaye in 'In Search Of The Castaways.'

Thanks, and I agree it almost certainly isn't.
I don't remember now, but I'm happy to be corrected as to which demonstration it was. And I certainly agree that he looks too old. As you put it, he (very much) 'looks like Albert Steptoe'. I think that was all I was trying to say, as, surely he would have got A0 a speaking role, b) full credit by then.
