Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

An affable British leading man of stage and screen, More made his film debut in 1935 and established himself as a popular star in the 1950s in both light comedies ("Doctor in the House" 1954) and jingoistic wartime melodramas ("Reach for the Sky" 1956). His best performance of the period was the recreation of his stage role in "The Deep Blue Sea" (1955). In the late 1960s, he earned praise for his work as Old Jolyon in the BBC miniseries "The Forsyte Saga" (shown on PBS in the USA).

Correction: More played Young Jolyon, not Old Jolyon in "The Forsyte Saga." Also, his excellent protrayal of a ship's officer on the Titanic in "A Night to Remember" (1958) should be noted.
