Graham Stark - Actor/director Graham Stark Dead At 91

Actor and director Graham Stark has died, aged 91.

The Cheshire, England-born and bred star, who served as best man at all four of pal Peter Sellers' weddings, passed away in London on Tuesday night (29Oct13), weeks after suffering a stroke.

Stark made his movie debut in 1939 as a bell boy in The Spy in Black but his acting career stalled during World War Two when he joined the Royal Air Force and entertained troops alongside comedians Sellers, Tony Hancock and DICk Emery.

He appeared in British movie classics The Plank, Alfie, Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying MAChines, The Mouse on the Moon and the original Casino Royale, and teamed up with pal Sellers in a number of Pink Panther films including A Shot in the Dark, The Pink Panther Strikes Again and The Return of the Pink Panther.

Stark also directed the cult The Magnificent Seven Deadly Sins.

He is survived by his actress wife Audrey Nicholson and three children.
