Hollow-cheeked character player Kenneth Colley acted in several of the "trendy," director-dominated films glutting the market of his native England in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Colley was seen in Michael Winner's The Jokers (1967), Richard Lester's How I Won the War (1968), Ken Russell's The Devils (1971) and The Music Lovers (1971). Many of the actor's later performances were in more conformist films like Hitler: The Last Ten Days (1973) and Return of the Jedi (1983) (as Admiral Piett), though in 1989 he was back with Ken Russell in The Rainbow (1989). Colley portrayed Lord Horatio Nelson in the four-part TV biography I Remember Nelson, telecast in America as part of the 1981-82 season of Masterpiece Theatre.
