Eric Barker - Rotten Tomatoes

Eric Barker



British radio comedian Eric Barker gained popularity on such late 1940s series as Merry Go Round and Just Fancy, in which he costarred with wife Pearl Hackney. Like most English radio stars, Barker was best known by his catch-phrase, "Steady Barker." Though he'd been making films off and on since 1936, Barker didn't step before the cameras as a major character actor until 1957's Brothers In Law (for which he won a British Film Academy award), long after his radio fame had subsided. The actor appeared in several of the zany "Carry On" films, from Carry On Constable (1960) to the somewhat seamier Carry On Emmanuelle (1978). Some of the better-known films in which Eric Barker was featured were Heavens Above (1963), Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines (1965) (as a French postman!), and There's a Girl in My Soup (1971).
