      Alan Napier

      Alan Napier

      Highest Rated: 100% Lured (1947)

      Lowest Rated: 20% Desiree (1954)

      Birthday: Jan 7, 1903

      Birthplace: Birmingham, England, UK

      Tall, gaunt, elegant, mustachioed character actor, born in England, who after considerable stage and some film experience moved to the United States in 1939. Almost invariably in gentlemanly roles connoting Britishness, Napier played a variety of noblemen, butlers, senior officers, professors and aristocrats, with an occasional villager or con man thrown in for good measure. His over 70 film credits include roles in "The House of the Seven Gables" (1940), "The Song of Bernadette" (1943), "Three Strangers" (1946), "Macbeth" (1948), "Julius Caesar" (1953), "The Court Jester" (1956), "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (1959) and "Marnie" (1964). A prolific TV performer, Napier is best-known as Alfred, the perfect butler to the Caped Crusaders (and the only person to know Batgirl's true identity), on the camp classic, "Batman."
