DVD box set featuring four rare Ealing titles, including the 1935 film debut of Lord Peter Wimsey in The Silent Passenger, and George Baker as Dr Jim Alcott in The Feminine Touch (1956).
George Baker made his West End début in a Haymarket revival of Frederick Lonsdale’s Aren’t We All? in 1953. Family commitments led him to turn down an offer to join the Royal Shakespeare Company and in 1954 he became contracted to the Associated British Pictures Corporation.
George later returned to the theatre, had three seasons at the Old Vic and his work with the RSC includes the acclaimed Days in the Trees (1966) with Peggy Ashcroft at the Aldwych Theatre. He played Broadway in Noel Coward’s Look After Lulu and for five years ran his own theatre company.
In June 2007, George was awarded an MBE for setting up a youth club in his home village of West Lavington.
