Does Ellen Corby star in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)? [closed]
I'm new here but I've used other Stack Exchange sites.
Fairly recently, as a family, we watched the 1971 Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. When Charlie finds the golden ticket, he gets surrounded by people in the street.
In the commotion, a person shouts out:
"Let me see it"
Then the same voice says:
"Do you see what he's got?"
Just search for: 'Charlie finds the golden ticket' to see the scene.
I'm pretty good at recognising actors from other productions when I see them, usually it's the voice of the person that triggers me. I hear Ellen Corby's voice as the person that says the lines above, we've watched many episodes of The Walton's and it caught my attention immediately.
After searching through the cast of the film and Ellen Corby's filmography, I cannot see that it is her.
Is this Ellen Corby? Or some other actress?
According to IMDB Full cast page - there is no Ellen Corby in the cast.
And, according to Ellen Corbys IMDB page, She was not in the film.

from my own comment. I think this may be the closest it's actually possible to discover.
The chances of this being potentially possible must be balanced against how much the film would need a bit-part actor of extensive experience & therefore decent commandable price so much that they would pay to ship them from the US to Germany for what was likely only a one-day scene in an uncredited role.
I'd bet the odds are slim.
The get-out may be if the ADR (additional dialog recording) was done back in the US, so the voices & the people we see on-screen are not the same. The chances of finding that data are negligible from back then. You'd need personal anecdote.
