Mild-mannered British stage actor Stringer Davis was serving in the British army in 1945 when he was married by proxy to actress Margaret Rutherford, an old friend from his regional repertory days. Upon his return to England, Davis elected to accept minor roles in the films and theatrical productions starring Rutherford. This was not opportunism but devotion: Several years her husband's senior, Rutherford depended upon Davis to tend to her many health problems while she was on tour or on the set. Davis' most sizeable screen role was Mr. Stringer, the platonic gentleman companion of amateur sleuth Miss Marple (Rutherford, of course), in a quartet of comedy-mysteries bearing such titles as Murder She Said (1962) and Murder at the Gallop (1964). Fifteen months after the death of his wife, the disconsolate Stringer Davis likewise passed away at the age of 77.
