The son of a British army colonel, actor Ronald Squire attending Wellington College and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. He first appeared on stage in 1909 in a provincial production of An Englishman's Home, which was transferred to London the following year. A charter member of the Liverpool Repertory, Squire appeared in everything from Shaw to Barrie. He made his first New York appearance in 1917's Gambler's All. Turning producer in the mid 1920s, Squire continued his London career into the late '40s, and also toured in Blithe Spirit and While the Sun Shines. After his 1934 film bow, Culver settled into smug, self-important comedy roles along the lines of American actor Fred Clark. Loyal to the Mother Country, Ronald Squire made few films for US consumption; the few exceptions included No Highway in the Sky (1951) My Cousin Rachel (1952), Around the World in 80 Days and Count Your Blessings (1958) -- all Hollywood-financed films lensed in England and Europe.
