British actor Richard Todd was noted for his roles in several Walt Disney adventure films in the early 1950s, starring in 1952’s The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men, The Sword and the Rose (1953), and Rob Roy, the Highland Rogue (1953).

He was born Richard Palethorpe-Todd in Dublin, Ireland, on June 11, 1919.  He trained as an actor and began his career on stage in 1936.  He appeared in small roles in several films later in the decade before the outbreak of World War II.  Todd served in the British Army during the war.  He rose to the rank of Captain by 1944 and participated in the D-Day landings with the British 6th Airborne Division.  He returned to the stage and screen after the war.

He earned an Academy Award nomination for his role in the 1949 film The Hasty Heart, and starred in Alfred Hitchcock’s Stage Fright (1950) with Jane Wyman and Marlene Dietrich. »
