Actor Edward Lexy made his first London stage appearance in 1936. The following year, the brusque, stocky Lexy made his screen debut. At his peak in the immediate pre-WW II years, he gained a following as Inspector Hollis in a brace of delightful British "Thin Man" derivations, This Man is News (1938) and This Man in Paris (1939). Thereafter, he settled into supporting and minor roles, often unbilled. Little is known of Edward Lexy's activities after his retirement in 1958.
