LE MESURIER, John

mesurierThat it’s possible to get worked up about The Mezh being solely known for a single role of such manifold brilliance and subtlety points up just how amazing the rest of his career was. To attempt anything like a representative sample within the space here allowed would invite the reproach ‘Do you think that’s awfully wise?’ Just look at a few titles – St Trinians, School for Scoundrels, Follow a Star, the Rebel, Only Two Can Play, The Wrong Box, City under the Sea, The Magic Christian… Name it, he’s done it.

FINEST HOUR: Under J Le M’s wing Passelewe, the long-suffering aide to Max Wall’s questionable King Bruno in Jabberwocky, developed a relationship with his master akin to an even more strained Mainwaring/Wilson affair.
