On-stage from 1939, when he appeared in the Old Vic production of French Without Tears, Michael Aldridge carved out a niche for himself in light, aristocratic comedy roles. His first film appearance was in the otherwise unremarkable Bank Holiday Luck (1947). Orson Welles aficionados will remember Aldridge's work as the cadaverous Pistol in Chimes at Midnight (1967). As busy on British television as he was elsewhere, Michael Aldridge starred or co-starred in such series as The Man in Room 17 (1965-1966), Love for Lydia (1977), Charlie (1984), Charters and Caldicott (1985), and Last of the Summer Wine (1985-1989); he also appeared as the C.S. Lewis-like professor in the 1988 TV production of Lewis' The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
