  • Angular Irish-born character comedian Sam Kydd was a fixture in British film from his first role, The Captive Heart (1945), onward. Born in Belfast, Kydd emigrated to London with his parents and was educated at Dunstable Grammar. He fought in World War II, was captured in Calais and remained a POW in Poland until 1946. (He later wrote a book about his war experiences entitled For You the War is Over. By his own reckoning he went on to appear in some 150 films, and one is hard pressed to argue with that. Some of his roles were small to microscopic, but it was hard to miss Kydd's skinny frame and dagger-sharp facial features. Among Sam Kydd's film credits were Treasure Island (1950) (as Cady, the pirate), The Quatermass Experiment (1955) and I'm All Right Jack (1959).
