Biography by Hal Erickson

A performer since the age of ten (his first major film role was in 1921's The Fifth Form at St. Dominic's), British actor Leslie Dwyer matured into an agreeable character player. His plump frame and jaunty cockney dialect were familiar ingredients to many films of the '40s and '50s. Dwyer could be seen in such internationally distributed British productions as In Which We Serve (1942), The Way Ahead (1944), Vacation from Marriage (1946), Laughter in Paradise (1951), the remake of Hitchcock's The 39 Steps (1959) and Die, Monster, Die (1966). When not before the cameras, Leslie Dwyer could be found at the cricket fields, either as player or enthusiastic spectator.
