Richard Basehart, Simone Simon, George Baker, Sid James and Beryl Reid are among the stars of this engaging 'portmanteau' feature that takes a comical look at the usually obscure but oddly complicated lives of a group of film extras. Also featuring pop sensation Dennis Lotis and singer (and future Oliver! star) Shani Wallis in a very early film role, The Extra Day is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

The Extra Day

At the end of the final day of filming, one of the studio drivers loses the last can of film. The producer orders his assistant Joe Blake to track down all five extras involved in the last scene, ensuring they are available the following morning for retakes. Joe knows them all: Steven Marlow, ex-commando officer; Barney West, a broken-down prizefighter; Mr and Mrs Bliss, now retiring after 40 years in the profession; and Toni Howard, a Society girl bored with Society. Visiting each in turn, he has a glimpse into their various private lives and finds comedy, drama and tragedy.
