Actor and director Murray Melvin trained with Joan Littlewood's Theatre Workshop company at the Theatre Royal Stratford East. Murray’s film career began in the 1960s, with a notable early appearance as a gay man in A Taste of Honey (1961) – a bold role for the era. Soon afterwards he appeared in Joan Littlewood’s only film, Sparrows Can’t Sing (1963), when it transferred from stage to screen. He became a favorite and lifelong friend of director Ken Russell, who cast him in his films The Devils (1970) and The Boy Friend (1971), to name just a couple. Other notable film appearances include Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon (1975); Peter Medak’s The Krays (1990) and David Copperfield (2000); Christine Edzard’s Little Dorrit (1988) and in 2004 The Phantom of the Opera. This event is presented by Thomas Bowington and the London Film Convention.
