Charles Laughton was an English actor from the 1920s to the 1960s. He appeared on the stage in England beginning in 1926, and he appeared in a few movie shorts in the 1920s, but his acting career really did not begin until 1931. Some of his movies include: Witness for the Prosecution, Spartacus, Mutiny On The Bounty (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film), The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Advise and Consent, The Private Life Of Henry VIII (winner of the Best Actor Academy Award for this film), and Island of Lost Souls. He was married for many years to Elsa Lanchester, although he was reportedly gay. He directed a single movie, "Night of the Hunter", and because it was not financially successful, he never directed another, which is a real shame, because that movie is considered a major classic by most critics! Laughton passed away in 1962 at the age of 63.
