John Gielgud (1904–2000) was an English actor and theatre director who, along with Ralph Richardson and Laurence Olivier, dominated the British stage for much of the 20th century.
Though he made his first film in 1924 and had successes with The Good Companions (1933) and Julius Caesar (1953), he did not begin a regular film career until his sixties.
He appeared in more than 60 films between Becket in 1964 (his first Academy Award nomination) and Elizabeth in 1998.
As the acid-tongued Hobson in Arthur (1981) he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
He earned a Golden Globe Award and two BAFTAs, and had the rare distinction of winning an Oscar, an Emmy, a Grammy, and a Tony.
