Valentine Dyall Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 1908
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

British actor Valentine Dyall was a well-known radio performer of the '40s, introducing a weekly "scare" series with "This is your storyteller....the Man in Black." In films, Dyall looked more like a bank president than the voice of doom, and was cast accordingly. On stage since 1930 and films since 1942, Dyall remained busy into the '80s. Some of Dyall's best-known films include [[Feature~V29185~The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp~thelifeanddeathofcolonelblimp]] (1943), [[Feature~V22161~Henry V~henryv]] (1945) (as the Duke of Burgundy), [[Feature~V7805~Caesar and Cleopatra~caesarandcleopatra]] (1946), [[Feature~V7121~Brief Encounter~briefencounter]] (1946), [[Feature~V21684~The Haunting~thehaunting]] (1963), [[Feature~V55626~The Wrong Box~thewrongbox]] (1967) and [[Feature~V8522~Casino Royale~casinoroyale]] (1967). Valentine Dyall made many of his final appearances where he began, on radio: he was indispensable to many Halloween broadcasts of the '70s and '80s, sometimes nostalgically recreating "The Man in Black." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
