About this title


"Single-handed. John le Mesurier has made more films watchable, even absorbing, than anyone else around," writes Philip Oakes in the Sunday Times. John le Mesurier's acting career spanned fifty years, from the days of Fay Compton's Studio of Dramatic Arts to his phenomenal success as the ineffectual Sergeant Wilson in "Dad's Army" and beyond. After a time in rep he started making films with his second wife, Hattie Jacques, and with Kenneth More, Peter Sellers, Tony Hancock, Ian Carmichael and virtually every other British comedy actor of the period.
