Yes, but did you check the credits on my "UFO Cast Information" page? :-)
Ed is definitely in Saturn 3, but you're right -- I don't think you
can *see* him in this movie, only *hear* him. One of his favorite
convention stories concerns this movie. He practiced his lines,
rehearsed the scene, and then much to his surprise someone came out
and put a giant helmet over his head so that you couldn't see his
face -- and then the director yelled "Action!".

Well that will be interesting!
Although, if this explanation contradicts our previous
information about Lew Grade, we have a problem in that
the original information came from an interview with
Gerry Anderson -- *which* Gerry Anderson interview
are we expected to believe in this case???

Oh, PE-LEASE don't mention Saturn 3, I saw Ed B listed as appearing in it
years ago (pre-Internet days) and there was no sign of him. Nor of his
voice. May have something to do with the movie being shown on a French
channel back then, therefore dubbed in French :-)
His name appearing as an actor in that movie was a mystery, which was
solved one day by joining this list and reading his voice appeared, not him...
Another film I watched just for a chance to see Ed, only to me
traumatized by Kirk Douglas' naked bum - AAARRGGGGGHHHH!

He's the shuttle pilot under the big helmet that says something about
"reemerging from SHADOW" - always thought that was amusing ...
