Creator: Terry-Thomas
"A page about me? I say! Jolly good show!"
Terry-Thomas (born Thomas Terry Hoar Stevens, July 10, 1911 — January 8, 1990) was an English comedian and character actor who became known to a worldwide audience through his many films during the 1950s and '60s. He often portrayed disreputable members of the upper classes, especially cads, toffs and bounders, using his distinctive voice; his costume and props tended to include a bowler, waistcoat and cigarette holder. He was perhaps most well-known for the large gap between his front teeth.
