Actor H.G.Stoker who played part of Captain Holt.
14 June 2001 | by selsleySee all my reviews

Brown on Resolution is an interesting film as one of the actors, an Irishman Henry Hugh Gordon Stoker was in World War I the Captain of an Australian Submarine "AE2". In 1915 this submarine was the first to penetrate the mined narrows of the Dardanelles, to enter the Sea of Marmara and after a series of naval engagements was scuttled. H.G. Stoker became a prisoner-of-war where his natural acting talents were used in a number of ways including unsuccessful escape attempts. He left the Navy about 1921 to persue an acting career. He was recalled to active service in 1939. He plays the part of Captain Holt with a certain authenticity.
