Aubrey Morris (born 1 June 1926 in Portsmouth, Hampshire) is a British actor perhaps best known for his appearances in the cult 1970s films A Clockwork Orange and The Wicker Man.[1]

His grandparents were from Kiev and escaped the Russian pogroms, arriving in London in about 1890. The family moved to Portsmouth at the turn of the 20th century. Morris was one of nine children born to Morry and Becky Morris. An elder brother, Wolfe Morris, was also an accomplished actor.

Work[edit]

Morris has starred in over fifty films, including Woody Allen's Love and Death (1975), Ken Russell's Lisztomania (1975), and Gene Wilder's The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother (1977). He has been in many television programmes since the late-1950s. Although most of his television appearances have been in Britain, such as Z Cars and Lovejoy, he has also made some appearances in U.S. programmes, such as a 1998 Columbo movie titled Ashes to Ashes. Morris has managed to star in a significant number of shows and films that are regarded by many as cult classics. Together with the character he played (usually present in just one episode in the case of television series), these include:
