Originally a stage actor, Englishman Barry Jones successfully transitioned to the screen in 1932 and went on to work for over three decades in film and television in both the United States and England. His first several film roles were, appropriately, derived from plays, including the crime thriller "Number 17," directed by Alfred Hitchcock, and the George Bernard Shaw romantic-comedy adaption "Arms and the Man," in which Jones starred as Capt. Bluntschli. By the end of the 1930s, Jones made his first appearance on television, and by the mid-1950s he was working on such American theater-based programs as "Kraft Theatre" and "Robert Montgomery Presents." While stateside, Jones continued to take on aristocratic roles, including King Luke in "Prince Valiant," Aristotle in "Alexander the Great"--in which he starred alongside such acting royalty as Richard Burton, Fredric March, and Claire Bloom--and as Prince Mikhail Andreevich Rostov in the 1956 epic "War and Peace." Jones' career soon peaked, in terms of critical recognition, on an episode of the "Hallmark Hall of Fame" titled "Victoria Regina"; for his characteristically authoritative role of The Dean, Jones earned a Best Supporting Actor Emmy nomination. He was soon back on television in the U.K., with a leading role in the mini-series "Martin Chuzzlewit."
