Arthur Lester Matthews[1] (6 June 1900 - 5 June 1975) was an English actor born in Nottingham. In his career, the handsome British actor made more than 180 appearances in film and on television. He was on occasion erroneously credited as Lester Mathews and especially in later years was sometimes known as Les Matthews. Matthews played supporting roles in films like The Raven and Werewolf of London, but his career deteriorated into bit parts. He died on 6 June 1975 in Los Angeles, California. His ashes were scattered into the Pacific Ocean.
