He made his stage debut in 1932, but didn't make a major impact in films until after service in The Second World War. In the 1950s he became a popular, debonair leading man in British films, including Pandora and the Flying Dutchman (1950), The Pickwick Papers (1952), The Sound Barrier (1952), Sapphire (1959) and The League of Gentlemen (1959).
He was later successful on stage and television (in the series Zero One) in the 1960s, and still occasionally returned to films for major productions like Battle of Britain (1969).
He also starred in and directed two films, How to Murder a Rich Uncle in 1957, and Johnny Nobody in 1960.
He was married to the actress Beatrice Campbell until her death in 1979.
