Denholm Mitchell Elliott CBE (31 May 1922- 6 October 1992) was an English character actor.
He is probably best remembered for his role as Marcus Brody in Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. He won three BAFTAs in a row for Trading Places, A Private Function and Defence Of The Realm. His other roles included Sub-Lieutenant John Morrell in The Cruel Sea, an abortionist in Alfie, Vance Fowler in The Night They Raided Minsky's, Charles Hillyer in The House That Dripped Blood, Will Scarlet in Robin and Marian, Sidney Beynon in The Boys from Brazil, Cowslip in Watership Down, Mr. Emerson in A Room with a View and Selsdon Mowbray in Noises Off (his final film appearance).
- The Character Died with Him: Marcus Brody's death is acknowledged in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in the form of a commemorative statue.
- Large Ham: Not in the BRIAN BLESSED sense, but Elliott had a talent for pulling extremely expressive faces that would draw the attention of the audience. On both the British stage and in British cinema, it was often warned of lead actors to, "Never act with children, dogs, or Denholm Elliott" because of his scene stealing.
