Re: Wilfred Hyde-White

Grant excellent choices for him. I especially agree with the fact that he would have made a great Butler in Forgotten Lady. He would also be a great funeral parlor assistant in Ashes to Ashes working with Prince ( P. McGoohan.)

Re: Wilfred Hyde-White

I was reading about Vincent Price and I was quite surprised to find out that he’s not British. He’s from St. Louis and went to Yale. A lot of actors back then practiced a “midlantic” accent so that they could work in either the U.S. or U.K. The midlantic dialect is interesting because it didn’t occur naturally, it was taught in theater and elocution classes and only spoken by certain types of entertainment professionals.

So that’s why Price sounded British.
