There's precious little that British entertainer Jim Dale doesn't do well. A former ballet dancer, pop singer and disc jockey, Dale has been in TV since 1957 and the movies since 1961. American audiences were first made aware of the ebullient, rubber-faced Dale through his appearances in the popular British Carry On film series. In 1966, Dale's lyrics for the title tune in Georgy Girl scored a top-ten hit on American rock n' roll radio stations. Children came to know and love Dale for his work in the Disney films Pete's Dragon, Hot Lead and Cold Feet, and Unidentified Flying Oddball. He has also successfully appeared on the Broadway musical stage in Scapino and Barnum. In 1992, Jim Dale returned to his roots, as it were, as star of the "retro" film farce Carry On Columbus.
