Elwyn Brook-Jones (11 December 1911 – 4 September 1962) was a British theatre, film and television actor.[1]


Brook-Jones was born in Kuching, Sarawak, on the island of Borneo. After a private education, he attended Jesus College, Oxford.

His public debut was in Australia, aged 11, as a concert pianist; he later made cabaret appearances in the US and the Far East.[2] He was a repertory actor, first appearing in London in 1943 in Hedda Gabler as Judge Brack, before going on to appear in many productions in the West End, films and television.[3][4]

In the BBC children's series Garry Halliday, he was the hero's opponent "The Voice".[5] His most prominent film role was arguably Tober in Carol Reed's Odd Man Out (1947).[2] He was also Gladwin in Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's The Small Back Room (1949) and the Emir in The Pure Hell of St Trinian's (1960).[1]

He died in Reading, Berkshire, aged 50.[1]
