MINI BIO:

Tall, solid, pleasant, light-haired South African-born leading man who had long careers in Britain and Hollywood, mostly as quiet dependable types. Although perhaps not dynamic enough to become a top star, his range was wider than his constant casting as "other men" or members of the aristocracy would suggest and he gave a fascinating performance as the Christ-figure in Strange Cargo (1940).

The good people want to live together as good, peaceful citizens. And when they get together, there isn't a man fast enough on the draw or tough enough to stand against them. Not even Hannibal, Napolean or Billy the Kid.
