Biography

Livepudlian Brian Oulton began his stage career with his home town's rep company. He made his 1939 film bow as a nominal leading man, served five years in the Army, then returned in 1946 as a character actor. Oulton made his mark in beetle-browed, pompous, easily deflatable character roles in films ranging from Last Holiday (1950) to Young Sherlock Holmes (1985); he also showed up as a faffling comic foil in several of the "Carry On" comedy series. Alternating his screen work with his stage activities, Oulton both wrote and acted such revues as Births, Marriages and Deaths (1975), For Entertainment Only (1976). Brian Oulton's radio credits include the role of Cyril on the long-running children's favorite Just William. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
