Esmond Knight

Why not visit the site dedicated to this British actor?

Because I've never heard of him.

Nonsense. He is a notable figure in Shropshire screen history, and he appeared in A Canterbury Tale - recently voted one of my favourite films and also one of the favourites of Peter at The Apollo Project.

I remember seeing Esmond Knight several times on stage - at the Old Vic when it was the first home of the National Theatre. Other actors would discretely make sure that he was at the right spot on the stage. He was indeed a fine actor.

Thanks, Jonathan.

A very interesting link.

I shall try to arrange a showing of A Canterbury Tale as a fringe event in Bournemouth.
