Biography

Michael Medwin first appeared on stage in 1940.

His many West End theatre credits include Man and Superman, The Rivals, Love for Love, Duckers and Lovers, Alfie, St Joan of the Stockyards, and What the Butler Saw.

He is probably best known for his role as radio boss Don Satchley in the BBC television detective series Shoestring, and playing Scrooge's nephew Fred in the musical film version of "A Christmas Carol", Scrooge, as well as for his role in The Army Game, a British television comedy series of the late 1950s and early 1960s.

He made many film appearances, including Carry On Nurse (1959) and The Longest Day (1962), before turning to producing films. Among the films he produced for Memorial Enterprises, a company he established with actor Albert Finney, are Charlie Bubbles (1967), directed by Finney, and Lindsay Anderson's If.... (1968), which won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. He worked again with Anderson on O Lucky Man! (1973), continuing the story of the Mick Travis character from their earlier film.

In tandem with his producing career he appeared in many films, including Never Say Never Again in 1983 as a Shrublands Doctor putting Bond through his physical.

He was awarded the O.B.E. (Officer of the Order of the British Empire), in the 2005 Queens Birthday Honour's List for Services to Drama, which he says is the single greatest thing that has ever happened to him.
