Kenneth Griffith has Died

In Memory

Kenneth Griffith English character actor and documentary film maker has passed on at the age of 84. Griffith is not a big name in this country, in fact I wouldn't doubt that he was semi-obscure in his own, however he has a large body of work to recommend him. My knowledge of Griffith is quite minimal, in fact I'd probably have a hard time identifying him on film, but to look at a list of his films brings back to my memory a number of unusual British offerings I have enjoyed over the years. He was in a number of early Peter Sellers films including Heavens Above and I'm All Right Jack (for which Sellers won his BAFTA). He was also in that mid-90's film with a real long title about a small Welch town, and some other Hugh Grant work. Most importantly however was his role (both in front and behind the camera) in the 60's cult classic TV series The Prisoner. Kenneth Griffith left some work you just might want to check out.
