Douglas Leaves Little To Family
Legendary British actor JACK DOUGLAS left just $21,000 (£14,000) to his relatives following his death last year (08).
The 81-year-old, best known for his recurring role in the classic Carry On comedy film franchise, passed away in December (08) after a battle with pneumonia.
And despite his high profile work in eight Carry On movies, as well as appearances in British TV comedies such as The Goodies and The Benny Hill Show, the star was left with very little money to pass on to his family by the time his will was executed this year (09).
Throughout his life Douglas often complained of the low pay he received during his time as a Carry On actor, claiming he was never handed any royalties from repeat TV screenings.
