Motion Picture and Television Director. Born in London, the son of a businessman and a former singer and dancer, he served in the Far East with the British Royal Navy while a teenager during World War II. Upon his return home, he launched his career in entertainment as a juvenile performer and stage director with the Nottingham Repertory Theatre. In 1953, he moved to Canada where he became a resident leading actor of the Ottawa Theatre and marked his TV debut two years later following his relocation to Toronto. He eventually returned to Britain where he directed such TV programs as "Wednesday Play", "Armchair Theatre", and during the late-1960s and 1970s had a string of feature efforts with "Anne of the Thousand Days" (1969, for which he received a Golden Globe Award), "Mary, Queen of Scots" (1971), "Lost Horizon" (1973), "The Dove" (1974) and "The Other Side of Midnight" (1977). During the 1980s and 1990s, he directed several TV-movies including "Poor Little Rich Girl: The Barbara Hutton Story" (1987) and "Lucy & Desi: Before the Laughter" (1991). He died from prostate cancer.
