Highest Rated: 93% The Ballad of Cable Hogue (1970)

Lowest Rated: 8% A Thousand Kisses Deep (2011)

Birthday: Jul 29, 1941

Birthplace: Manchester, England, UK

Gangly British stage-trained actor David Warner entered film in the early 1960s and came to attention in the title role of Karel Reisz's eccentric drama, "Morgan!" (1966), playing an unbalanced artist driven to the edge by his divorce. He has worked for such distinguished directors as John Frankenheimer, Sidney Lumet, Richard Donner, Joseph Losey, Alain Resnais and--on three occasions--Sam Peckinpah ("The Ballad of Cable Hogue" 1970; "Straw Dogs" 1971; and "Cross of Iron" 1977). While highly capable of sympathetic and even poignant roles, Warner has delivered many notable performances as villains, including Jack the Ripper to Malcolm McDowell's H.G. Wells in "Time After Time" (1979), the Evil Genius in Terry Gilliam's "Time Bandits" (1983) and the sinister doctor in "Mr. North" (1988).
