Jeremy Lloyd

Jeremy Lloyd: 

† July 22 1930 – December 23 2014

Definitive upper-class twit and lecherous toff in British cinema of the '60s, he sadly abandoned acting in the '70s in favour of writing and producing TV shows like 'Are You Being Served?', 'Allo Allo' and 'Hi-De-Hi'. See him at his best in 'Smashing Time', 'School For Scoundrels', 'The Magic Christian' and 'Salt & Pepper' (as one Lord Ponsonby, naturally). He'd make a good sinister MI5 type these days.

But here's possibly his most obscure screen appearance (with thanks to punk potentate and beat-group aficionado Richard Huggins): Sabotaging The Tornados in the film 'Just For Fun' (1963).
