    British actor

      Born: Huyton, Lancashire 1908
      Died: New York, USA 1990

      Never an actor of hidden profundities, Harrison's natural environment was theatrical light comedy in which elegance was preferred to depth, and urbanity to rough edges.

      Though, in keeping with the mood of the late 1930s, he plays an idealitic reporter in Victor Saville's Storm in a Teacup (1937) and appears in King Vidor's socially conscious The Citadel (1938), he seems more at home in Herbert Wilcox's I Live in Grosvenor Square, David Lean's Blithe Spirit, or Sidney Gilliat's The Rake's Progress (all made in 1945).
