Early life and career

Morris was one of nine children born to Morry and Becky Morris. An elder brother, Wolfe Morris, was also an accomplished actor. 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. Aubrey attended Portsmouth Municipal College and RADA. His first stage appearance in 1944 was at the Open Air Theatre, Regent's Park in The Winter's Tale. From 1954 to 1956 he was at The Old Vic and he also appeared on Broadway.[3]

Film and television

Morris featured in over fifty films, including Woody Allen's Love and Death (1975),[2] Ken Russell's Lisztomania (1975),[2] and Gene Wilder's The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother (1977).[2] He also appeared in many television programmes, his debut being in a BBC production of the comedy Fly Away Peter (1948).[1] Although most of his television appearances were in Britain, such as Z-Cars and Lovejoy, he also made some appearances in US programmes, such as a Columbo movie titled Ashes to Ashes (1998).
