: Thanks Kees. I still wish my copy of the film was in better shape.
I received this regarding the cast and characters of Spy Story and my response:
I've tried to put together a cast list for Spy Story and this is it I think
Patrick Armstrong Michael Petrovitch
Ferdy Foxwell Philip Latham
Colonel Schlegel Don Fellows
Dawlish Michael Gwynn
Ben Toliver Nicholas Parsons
Helen Schlegel Toby Robins
Sara Shaw Tessa Wyatt
Colonel Stok Derren Nesbitt
Mason Nigel Plaskitt
Marjorie Ciaran Madden
Commander Wheeler Bernard Kay
Sub Captain Paul Maxwell
MacGregor Andrew Downie
Security Guard John Forgeham
Sylvester Stewart Bevan
Milkman Michael Knowles
Not 100% sure about Helen Schlegel but I think it's right.
Hope this is of interest
Thanks for getting back to me with this. I watched the movie again on my computer this time and I had a better picture. Watching a second time helped me better understand the storyline too.
I think you got the cast list correct as far as I can tell. I thought Toby Robbins and Ciaran Madden may have been mixed too but based on age I don't think so. Toby Robbins died of breast cancer and her husband had a facility named after her.
You have Michael Gwynn playing Dawlish. Was Dawlish the tall actor who played the British official? He was seen in several scenes with Col. Schlegel. They worked together to undo the Russians plan. I did not notice his name mentioned during the movie and I could find very little on Gwynn.
What makes it difficult to check is not being able to find pictures of the actors and not having personal contact. I really appreciate your efforts with this.
Are you going to update IMDb? I think you should.
All the best,
