    Does anyone know if Laurence is still active? I was in contact with him 20 years ago and he lived in Wimbledon. He was still doing some theatre work and was trying to write again.

    He is known as "Mac" to his friends because he wears an old mack or did do in those days.

    He was a classical actor and had some success in films and was an excellent Sexton Blake.

    He also starred in a Montgomery (Geoff) Tully directed film called "Third Alibi" that was produced by Eternal Films in the early 1960s.

    I was also told that he plays piano and has had something to do with the Music Hall Society in London.

    Can you shed any light on recent times?

    According to IMDb he is now 87 and I have childhood memories of him as Sexton Blake.

    According to IMDb he played D'Artagnan in a 1954 BBC series of "THE THREE MUSKETEERS". If you look at the cast list it makes your mouth water. Please God that the tapes have not been wiped.

    I regret to say this, but there were no 'tapes' in 1954 - all non-film tv drama went out live until early 1960s. If a repeat was required, the cast performed it again !



    This is unlike the USA (with their different time zones and greater distances) where 16mm

    kinescopes of 1950s tv shows were regularly made...
