    What was the name of the stout middle-aged British actor of the 40s who was in dozens of films, usually in sinister roles. He had a deep, plummy RP accent with a very slight lisp and inability to say his 'R's. He played crooked lawyers or politicians and was a sort of Francis L. Sullivan type, though not as widely known. I can't name a single film he was in, sorry... Help, please.

    That's him. Thank you so much. Aphra

    Sorry Stone Age Man, I thanked the wrong Britmovie member. But kind of you to send your suggestion. I was thinking of Raymond Lovell.
