Biography
Learning how to properly use his larynx and lungs while working as a London newsboy, British actor Harry Fowler entered radio in the early years of World War II, playing brash cockney kids. Fowler's film entree was the morale-boosting Salute John Citizen (1942), and within five years he was playing juvenile leads, notably the insouciant street kid in Hue and Cry (1947). Headlining in programmers while confined to supporting parts in major films, Fowler showed up in such productions as A Spot of Bother (1952), The Pickwick Papers (1953), Fire Maidens from Outer Space (1956) (as the standard sci-fi comedy relief), I Was Monty's Double (1958) and Lawrence of Arabia (1962). Sporting a moustache to qualify for grownup roles, Harry Fowler was a regular on the British TV comedy series The Army Game and Our Man at St. Mark's.
