Biography

A white-haired stage actor from England, in Hollywood from 1939, Clifford Brooke popped up in scores of bit roles in the 1940s, usually playing British white-collar workers such as chemists, veterinarians, bank clerks and, of course, butlers. With rather more pomposity, Brooke also portrayed Prime Minister Lloyd George in 20th Century Fox's highly touted but ultimately unsuccessful screen biography Wilson (1944). He was killed in a car accident in Santa Monica, CA, in 1951. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
