Alastair Sim Facts
Between 1941 and 1968, he played "Captain Hook" in at least six different stage productions of J.M. Barrie's "Peter Pan" (the non-musical version), but he never starred in a film of the play.

He was awarded a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the Coronation Honours List of 1953. He was also offered a knighthood but turned it down because it would have impinged too much on his private life.

When he was made Rector of Edinburgh University, he beat Harold Macmillan (the future Prime Minister) by 2078 votes to 802.
