Biography by Sandra Brennan

Though primarily associated with British theater, Irish playwright and character actor Joseph Tomelty had an extensive film career that spanned three decades. In 1956, injuries from a serious auto accident during the filming of Bhowani Junction temporarily derailed Tomelty's career. Following his recovery, he appeared less frequently in films and, in 1965, retired from acting. His film credits include Odd Man Out (1947), Meet Mr. Lucifer (1953), Front Page Story (1954), Upstairs and Downstairs (1961), and The Black Torment (1965).
