Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A.E. Matthews OBE (22 November 1869 - 25 July 1960) was an English actor who played numerous character roles on the stage and in film for eight decades. Matthews was born in Bridlington, East Riding of Yorkshire, England. Nicknamed "Matty," he was christened Alfred Edward Matthews. He was born in a small cottage, now demolished, which existed on the site of the current B&Q store in the town. He was affectionately regarded by the British public over his extraordinarily long career. Matthews toured during World War II in The First Mrs. Fraser with Dame Marie Tempest and Barry Morse and later in the extremely popular films Carry on Admiral, Doctor at Large and Around the World in 80 Days, amongst many others. From World War II until his death he enjoyed renown as one of British cinema's most famous crotchety, and sometimes rascally, old men.
