Billed by some historians as "the Maltese Menace" due to his land of birth and his occasional villain roles, actor Nigel Stock moved early in life from his native Malta to England, whence he began his stage career in 1931 as a child performer. In films since 1938's Lancashire Luck, Stock appeared in such major British releases as Brighton Rock (1946), The Dam Busters (1955) Damn the Defiant (1962) and Cromwell (1969). One of his last performances was a character part in the Spielberg-produced Young Sherlock Holmes (1986). Though possibly not intended, his appearance was something of an in-joke; Nigel Stock was at that time best known for his continuing performance as Dr. Watson in a BBC-TV series of Sherlock Holmes dramas.
