1[[quoteright:250:]] ²²Maurice Herbert Evans (June 3, 1901 – March 12, 1989) was a British actor. He gained fame in his native country for his performances in Creator/WilliamShakespeare plays, embodying the grand [[LargeHam larger-than-life]] tradition of Shakespearean acting (in contrast to the more subtle stylings of his contemporaries Creator/LaurenceOlivier and Creator/JohnGielgud). After moving to America he continued his Shakespeare work in a series of TV productions, but also took other acting roles, which have proven to be his most enduring work, most memorably as Dr. Zaius in in the first two ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'' films and as Samantha Stephens's father Maurice in the sitcom ''Series/{{Bewitched}}''.²----²!!Films with pages on TV Tropes:²* ''Film/AndroclesAndTheLion'' (1952)²* ''Film/TheWarLord'' (1965)²* ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'' ²** ''Film/{{Planet of the Apes|1968}}'' (1968)²** ''Film/BeneathThePlanetOfTheApes'' (1970)²* ''Film/RosemarysBaby'' (1968)²* ''Film/TheJerk'' (1979)²²!!TV series with pages on TV Tropes:²* ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'' (1964–1971)²* ''Series/TheManFromUncle'' (1966, episodes "The Bridge of Lions Affair" Part I and II)²* ''Series/{{Batman}}'' (1966, episodes "The Puzzles Are Coming" and "The Duo Is Slumming")²* ''Series/DanielBoone'' (1967, episode "Beaumarchais")²* ''Series/ISpy'' (1967, episode "Oedipus at Colonus")²* ''Series/TheBigValley'' (1969, episode "Danger Road")²* ''Series/TheModSquad'' (1969, episode "Never Give the Fuzz an Even Break")²* ''Series/{{Columbo}}'' (1975, episode "Forgotten Lady")²* ''Series/TheStreetsOfSanFrancisco'' (1975, episode "School of Fear")²* ''Series/FantasyIsland'' (1978, episode "The Beachcomber/The Last Whodunnit")²* ''Series/TheLoveBoat'' (1980 [[labelnote:episode]]"No Girls for Doc/Marriage of Convenience/The Caller/The Witness"[[/labelnote]])²----
