I guess it could be John Thaw as he had been active in TV and films since the early sixties.  A funny bit of trivia about him:

'He appeared in several episodes of the BBC police series Z-Cars in 1963–64 as a detective constable who left the force because of an unusual drink problem: he could not take the alcohol so often part of the policeman's work'.

IIRC, we all registered and were told we would be contacted if we were to be invited back... I don't know if any of us from up this way ever did get a 'call back' - I certainly don't know anyone that did.

Looking back, it may well have been a bit of a PR stunt to get the film some cheap publicity.

John Thaw was, of course, a Manchester boy - as was Harry H. Corbett of 'Steptoe' fame - so maybe in his early days he could initially have been involved - who knows?

Great actor(s) mind.nod[1].gif

Ha, the old 'don't call us, we'll call you' line...

John Thaw looking pretty sharp as Inspector Jenner in the dramatically-titled REVENGE: When a Man Hates (filmed 19th - 26th November 1968):

A question about modern Lee Rider 101's: is the rise sufficiently high - along the lines of Levi's 501s? 

 

My favourite pair of jeans are the Levi's 'long day' 501s that Covskin recommended a couple of months back - they have a very nice, classic skinhead look.

 

Now I wonder whether I should just get another pair of those, or try Lee Riders. But I don't want to order anything at that price if it turns out that the rise is too low, i.e. you can't even tuck your shirt in properly w/o looking stupid.

The rise is definitely higher than on 501s. (Now it depends probably too of what 501 cut, among the numerous 'years' LVC models maybe there is one with a higher rise. But compared to a contemporary 501, a Rider is much higher.)

Avoid the slimfit versions, i don't know about them, and all the other Lee models.

These may be of interest BK? The Back Rise measurement in jeans is as important to the fit as the Front Rise,but is usually omitted.It takes a bit of digging around,but there are a few options better than Levis IMO.I  wear Iron Heart 1955S currently,but also have a few different Edwins and Full Count for lighter weight.

I suppose I can just about get away with claiming this young mod as an 'old mate of mine', having bumped into him several times in the old Three Tuns in Beckenham (though in his 'Major Tom' days). RIP

Sheffield skinheads trip to Skegness, may 1971.

That's two dead 'unifying figures' (and capricorns, if you care about this sort of thing) in a very short time. I don't think I know anybody who does not like - or at least respect - Lemmy and Bowie, regardless what subculture/music scene they hail from.


Thanks for the Lee Riders info, gentlemen - hope you had a good start into the new year.

The top picture we have certainly had before , it is a picture of a couple of time-travellers as the big guy with the hanky in his pocket also, clearly has a mobile phone in his right hand. .:satisfied:

Looks like a previously unused publicity photo of Ewan Macgregor for Trainspotting. .

Looks more like he's scratching his nose. I think that pic's period.
