Cecil Parker (1897-1971) Mainly remembered as a film actor, whose husky voice and pompous characters dominated so many British films from the 30s to the 60s. In all he made 91 films. Most memorable were The Lady Vanishes (1938); Caesar and Cleopatra (1945); and the Ealing comedy The Ladykillers (1955). The part of Sir Peter seems tailor-made for him, though he never played it on stage.
