Kenneth More
Birth: Sep. 20, 1914
Death: Jul. 12, 1982

Actor. Born in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire, England, he was one of Britain's most popular screen actors of the 1940s and 1950s. A graduate of Victoria College, he served as a lieutenant in the British Navy during the Second World War. He is probably best known to American audiences for his roles as Captain Jonathan Shepard in the 1960 motion picture "Sink the Bismarck," and as Titanic's Second Officer Charles H. Lightoller in "A Night to Remember" (1958), the latter based on the book by author and historian Walter Lord. He began his screen career in the mid 1930s in a series of uncredited roles before gaining commercial success in the motion pictures "Genevieve" (1953) and "Doctor in the House" (1954). His notable film credits include: "School for Secrets" (1946), "Scott of the Antarctic" (1948), "Man on the Run" (1949), "Morning Departure" (1950), "Chance of a Lifetime" (1950), "The Franchise Affair" (1951), "Appointment with Venus" (1951), "Never Let Me Go" (1953), "Our Girl Friday" (1953), "The Deep Blue Sea" (1955), "Reach for the Sky" (1956), "North West Frontier" (1939), "The 39 Steps" (1959), "The Man in the Moon" (1960), "We Joined the Navy" (1962), "The Longest Day" (1962), "The Comedy Man" (1964), "Fraulein Doktor" (1969), "The Battle of Britain" (1969), "Scrooge" (1970) and "The Spaceman and King Arthur" (1979). He died in London, England from advanced Parkinson's disease at the age of 67. (bio by: Nils M. Solsvik Jr.)

Just watched the night to remember and you were an amazing actor in that film as well as the Longest Day. You have a face that is hard to forget. So glad I had the opportunity to see you act.
