Donald Henry Pleasence, OBE, (5 October 1919 – 2 February 1995) was an English actor who gained more than 200 screen credits during his long career, often having been typecast as villainous and/or psychopathic characters. Pleasence is possibly best known for his work in two of cinema’s most enduringly successful franchises: the James Bond and Halloween series.

Robin Bailey

Robin Bailey (5 October 1919 – 14 January 1999) was an English actor. Although often chosen for upper class and tradition-bound roles such as Judge (Death’s Head) Graves in Thames Television’s Rumpole Of The Bailey, Bailey is perhaps most fondly remembered for his portrayal of Uncle Mort in I Didn’t Know You Cared, the BBC adaptation of Peter Tinniswood’s stories about an extended Yorkshire family.
