A movie company truck loses a can of film containing the final scene of a just completed feature. The film's director insists that the scene be re-shot immediately and sends Richard Basehart to round up the scene's "extras". This pleasant British comedy focuses on the stories of these extras (note clever title), and on Basehart's efforts to locate them. Best episode is about the extra who is also a prizefighter: Basehart must make sure that he doesn't get punched in the face because visible marks would delay the new shooting. There is also a nice light romance between a very young George Baker and Simone Simon. As always the charming Simon is a pleasure to watch. Viewers who enjoy her in this movie will also want to see her in "The Devil and Daniel Webster" where her considerable sex appeal is effectively used to enhance the emotional impact of that film.
I wanted to give this film a 6.5 out of 10, but since IMDB does not allow this I give it a 7.
