Henry Wolf was also in The Ruttles - a spoof of the Beatles.

He had a non speaking role as Arthur Sultan the Surrey mystic :o

I saw him in an episode of The Sweeney as well, he played the caretaker at a football ground.

Just on Glynn Edwards I’m surprised no one has mentioned him as Dave the barman in Minder.


Also aswell as the other actors mentioned, he was in Zulu!

The Rutles “All You Need Is Cash”, still hilarious after all these years :o.
Arthur Sultan is what might happen if Frankie Barrow got hold of some illicit substance that had gone off, I dunno, Marmite or something :roll:. That long coat, hands in pockets, bare feet and sandals make Woolf look like a flasher, one of those people that like hugging a little too much :?. He also plays a madman in the film of RSC’s production of “Marat/Sade” (1967). Musicals can be tedious exercises, but Marat/Sade is excellent, recommended. Has anyone mentioned Diana Dors yet? "Theatre of Blood" and "From Beyond the Grave" are a few favorites :D.

The welshman that played the butcher in Steptoe and Son Ride Again was also a teacher in Please Sir.

Also did anyone notice that one of Frankie Barrow's heavies in Seven Steptoari(sp?) was Melvyn Hayes from It 'Aint Arf Hot Mum?

Richard Davies is that Welshman. Are you sure Melvin Hayes was one of Frankie's mob? He isn't listed in the Steptoerai credits which appears to be comprised of only the stunt players, I could be mistaken. Just discovered that Hayes also played the young Peter Cushing in "The Curse of Frankenstein", another classic :o.

Are you thinking of the chap that wraps a huge chain around his fingers? Looks a bit like him, you may be right.
As if a chain would help, another one of those absurd “hollywood” fight sequence conceits: attempt it and the bones are shattered. The only folks I recognize, other than Harry and Wilfrid of course, are Bill Weston and Vic Armstrong, legends in the stunt community :).

Yes, the one with the blond hair. I watched it again this afternoon and it wasn't him!

I have just re-watched the On The Buses movie and I noticed a Steptoe actor in it.

When Stan goes to the London Transport testing facility for the Skid Pan test,
the inspector Mr Brooks is played by Peter Madden who also played the randy ex-copper in Live Now, PAYE later.

That would be the Hammer production filmed in North Wales Pontins namely the third installment of the classic On the Buses franchise "Holiday on the Buses "(1973) featuring old twinkle toes Wilfrid Brambell. Oh I do love those films and series. :P

Yeah, so many actors are familiar who have been in Steptoe and other 60s & 70s sitcoms in the On the Buses films. It's like a who's who.

Trivia: Did you know Welsh actress Doris Hare's grandson was one on the kids on the bus in the scene in which Stan goes off piste through the country lanes and all get their ice creams in their faces. :D
