  • British actor George Woodbridge both looked and sounded like a rural tavern patron, thus was cast accordingly in many of his films. Woodbridge's red-faced characters in movies like Green for Danger (1946), The October Man (1947), and An Alligator Named Daisy (1955) always looked as though they'd just stopped in for a drink after selling their crops and poultry at market. He was also a regular in the Hammer Dracula films of the '50s and '60s, which featured incongruously provincial English in a Transylvania soundstage, as he related tales of "aunts" and "spooks" to his fellow pubgoers. Woodbridge had a weekly job on the '50s TV series Stryker of Scotland Yard, in which he portrayed a hearty police sergeant, just as he had so often before on the big screen. George Woodbridge was also prominently cast in the international TV success The Forsyte Saga (1967), playing Swithin.
