Kenneth More was an English actor.

BiographyEdit

Born in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire, More attempted a number of careers before becoming assistant manager at the Windmill Theatre, later becoming a member of their playing company. He continued to work in repertory despite a brief stint in the Royal Navy in the Second World War, and acheived his film debut in 1948. In 1952 he acheived great acclaim for his role in Terrence Rattigan's The Deep Blue Sea, leading to a role in Genevieve, for which he won a BAFTA for Best Newcomer.

More soon became a highly bankable star with leading roles in A Night to Remember and The Admirable Crichton. Though his career declined as he grew older, it received a resurgence due to a number of succesful West End stage roles, notably The Secretary Bird. He was later knighted for services to the theatre.

In the 1970s, More appeared less frequently due to a diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease. He passed away in 1982.

SingingEdit

In North West Frontier, More was briefly heard singing "The Eton Boating Song", which was used as a theme throughout the film. More substantial singing roles would come in his later career, playing The Ghost of Christmas Present in Scrooge and appearing as the Chamberlain in 1976's The Slipper and the Rose: The Story of Cinderella.
