    Who else is a fan of Mr. Waverley? With them redoing Get Smart, when will The Man From U.N.C.L.E. be remade? Leo G. Carroll was in more Alfred Hitchcock movies than any other actor (excluding Alfred, of course). Leo fought in WWI and was badly hurt. Named after Pope Leo, as his parents were fervant Catholics. Did the TV version of Topper for years.

    I like Carroll alot. He was a great character actor in many a Brit film and in a number of my favorite Universal monster films from the 40s and 50s (Tarantula, for instance). You need someone with his gravitas to make those bug flicks work.
