Educated at Switzerland's Fischer Institute, British character actor Michael Medwin was first seen on screen in 1946's Piccadilly Incident. He essayed breezy cockney bits and supporting roles in a number of war films as well as several lighthearted comedies of the Genevieve (1953) variety. With the 1967 "mod" seriocomedy Charlie Bubbles, Medwin switched hats to become a producer; his subsequent productions have included such off-the-track fare as If... (1968) and O Lucky Man (1973) etc. Even while producing, Medwin occasionally kept his hand in the acting game. British TV fans were offered a surfeit of Michael Medwin on the popular sitcoms The Army Game (1957-72) and Shoestring (1979-80).
