    (April 22, 1925-August 5, 2015)
    Born in London, United Kingdom
    Portrayed Arthur Daily in the ITV series 'Minder' (1979-94) and Flash Harry in the 'St. Trinian's' film series (1954-66)
    Also appeared in the films 'Henry V' (1944), 'Lady Godiva Rides Again' (1951), 'Scrooge' (1951), 'Folly To Be Wise' (1953), 'Our Girl Friday' (1953), 'An Inspector Calls' (1954), 'Cleopatra' (1963), 'The Vampire Lovers' (1970), 'The Blue Bird' (1976), 'The End of Innocence' (1990) and 'Mary Reilly' (1996)

    He was born in a borough of London named 'Tooting.'
    At 14, he walked out of school, got a part in a touring musical, and sent his parents the telegram 'Gone on the stage, will write.'
    His early acting career was hindered by a strong cockney accent.
    He was typecast as rogues.
    He served in the Royal Air Force (1944-47).
    He credited the mentoring of Alistair Sim for his successes in comedy.
    He was so convincing as the unscrupulous Arthur Daily that he had trouble getting people to accept checks from him.
    Upon appearing in the BBC drama 'A Class Apart' at age 82, he noted, 'Actors don't retire. They just stop getting work.'
