Personal Quote:

It is said that those who talk so much on the stage shouldn't talk too much in private. No artist should talk at all, he should let his work speak for him.


Best remembered for his role as the cynical analyst of schizophrenic ventriloquist Michael Redgrave in the classic thriller Dead of Night (1945). See more »
