Hugh Wakefield (1888 - 1971). As a useful stage actor Wakefield was in great demand during the quota era, though few of his films of the period were distinguished. Later he got to appear in a few decent films. The best film he was in was Blithe Spirit in which he played the doctor. After The Million Pound Note he retired.
