He escaped working in the impoverished mining town of his youth when he won scholarships to a Swiss school and Oxford. In 1927 he debuted onstage in both London and New York, and by the early '30s he was among the most well-respected leading men of his day; meanwhile he branched out into playwrighting and direcing. The best known of his plays is The Corn is Green (1938), which won the New York Drama Critics Award as best foreign play in 1941. He authored the autobiographies George (1961) and Emlyn (1973). He debuted onscreen in 1932 and for a decade he was very busy in films; after 1942 his film work was sporadic.
