Hugh Griffith (1912-1980)


  1. Richard Attenborough, Doctor Dolittle, 1967.  Both Griffith and Peter Bull were in the mix for circus owner Albert Blossom - and turned down for the same reason. Booze. Attenborough was another Blossom that year, as Shirley MacLaine’s husband in The Bliss of Mrs Blossom.
  2. Lionel Jeffries, Camelot, 1967. The booze also cost him King Pellinore...
  3. Hugh Burden, The House in Nightmare Park, 1973.   ...and even a daffy Frankie Howerd comedy.   With Ray Milland!
  4. Robert Shaw, The Sting, 1973.   Not happy with Richard Boone or Stephen Boyd as the stung, the three producers gave George Roy Hill   a   list   of acceptable Brits: Griffith, Olivier - and Shaw, who was secretly shown the script by Paul Newman while shooting in Britain.   LA wanted “greatness.” Shaw gave   "really the most intellectual performance I've   ever   done."   Oh really?
