Kynaston Reeves

Birthday: May 29, 1893
Birthplace: Not Available
In films from 1919, British actor Kynaston Reeves spent the next fifty years before the cameras. From the outset, Reeves specialized in playing scholars, magistrates and military officers. His movie credits include the early-talkie literary derivations The Lodger (1932) and Jew Suss (1934), and such later audience favorites as The Winslow Boy (1949), in which he played the Lord Chief Justice. He was also seen regularly on the BBC TV series Billy Bunter (1952). Kynaston Reeves' final film role was, appropriately enough, "The Old Man" in Billy Wilders The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970).
