British actor Ian Wilson started in films in 1922, but didn't thrive until the talkie era. With wire-rim spectacles, pursed lips and a brusque manner, Wilson was perfectly cast as clerks, minor officials and snoopy bystanders. His busiest years were the '50s in such movies as Seven Days to Noon (1950), The Magic Box (1951), Tonight at 8:30 (1952), Crest of the Wave (1954) and The Good Companions (1958); he also showed up in that melancholy milestone Bela Lugosi's fading career, Old Mother Riley Meets the Vampire (1952). According to historian David Quinlan, Ian Wilson was something of a "good luck charm" to the Boulting Brothers production firm, in that the actor appeared in some capacity in just about every Boulting film.
