Birthday:  
Birthplace:   Not Available
A stage actor from 1906, Frederick Leister was well into his fifties when he made his first screen appearance in 1937. For the next quarter century, the distinguished, orotund Leister enlivened British films with his own brand of unassailable dignity. His more memorable screen assignments include the "downsized" auditor-turned-racetrack cashier in The Hundred Pound Window (1943) and the snobbish patriarch in 1945's The Randolph Family (aka Dear Octopus). Frederick Leister's last screen role was the judge in the prologue of the 1961 suspense melodrama The Naked Edge.
