This was actually in "A Hard Day's Night", possibly the only Wilfrid Brambell film commercially available that I havent seen, as I can't stand the Beatles at all and couldn't imagine sitting through it.

Interesting performances from Wilfrid are in a rare swedish film "Picasso's Aventyr" where he plays a Lesbian (alongside Bernard Cribbins who plays the same). One that disappointed me was "Witchfinder General" - Wilfrid's name is on the DVD cover, third billing. But he is only in the film for 58 seconds!!!!!!!!!!!! They were naughty for doing that!!

But worse still is the DVD's of "Hardcore" which bill Harry. H Corbett on the cover - and he is in it for 7 seconds!!!!! Beware!!!
