Robert Morley

Biography:Robert Morley (May 26, 1908 - June 3, 1992) was a British actor who, often in supporting roles, was usually cast as a pompous English gentleman representing the Establishment. In his Movie Encyclopedia, film critic Leonard Maltin describes Morley as "recognizable by his ungainly bulk, bushy eyebrows, thick lips, and double chin, particularly effective when cast as a pompous windbag".

Born Robert Adolph Wilton Morley in Semley, Wiltshire, England, he attended Wellington College, RADA and made his West End stage debut in 1929 and his Broadway debut in 1938 but was soon won over to the big screen. A versatile actor who, especially in his younger years, played roles as divergent as those of Louis XVI (Marie Antoinette, 1938), Oscar Wilde (1960) and a missionary in The African Queen (1951), Morley personified the conservative Englishman in many comedy and caper films. Renowned for repartee and generally being an eloquent conversationalist, Morley gained the epitheton of being a "wit".

His son, Sheridan Morley, is a well-known writer and critic.
