MINI BIO:

Smooth, devious-looking British actor whose aristocratic charmers were often rotten to the core. When his leading-man career fell away in the fifties, there was a failed suicide bid, but he came back to play a series of sometimes dramatic, sometimes comic characters whose credentials were usually as fake as their smile and old school tie. Married/divorced actress Joan Schofield. Died from cirrhosis of the liver.

Dennis Price Quotes:

Louis Mazzini: [after murdering his cousin along with his cousin's mistress] I was sorry about the girl, but found some relief in the reflection that she had presumably during the weekend already undergone a fate worse than death.


Louis Mazzini: I considered it both seemly and touching that my dear wife should visit me as she did this morning, to make her farewells. Your arrival on the other hand, appears to me unseemly and tasteless in the extreme.
Sibella: I couldn't bear my last sight of you to be that look of hatred you gave me as you went out from the trial
Louis Mazzini: In view of the fact that your evidence had put the rope around my neck, you could hardly expect a glance of warm affection.


Louis Mazzini: The Reverend Lord Henry was not one of those new-fangled parsons who carry the principles of their vocation uncomfortably into private life.
