Tall, saturnine English actor, in some excellent films, typically playing a villain.

Rolfe was a professional boxer and racing driver before turning to acting at the age of 24. He made his screen debut in 1937 with an uncredited appearance in Knight Without Armour and went on to make over 40 films.

 His credits include Ivanhoe (as Prince John, 1952), Young Bess (as Ned Symour. 1953), Hammer’s The Stranglers of Bombay (leading role, 1959), The Barbarians (1960), King of Kings (as Caiaphas, 1961), Taras Bulba (as Prince Grigory, 1962) and The Case of Marcel Duchamp (as Sherlock Holmes, 1984) .

He is now perhaps best remembered for his role as Andre Toulon in the Puppet Master slasher film series, appearing in the third, fourth, fifth and seventh films, with archive footage in the eighth.

Rolfe’s television credits include The Saint, The Avengers, The Champions, Department S, The Troubleshooters,  Space: 1999, Secret Army and Kessler.

This is a very fine original black and white publicity photograph (9.75" x 7.25") signed and inscribed ("To Philip, Guy Rolfe") in blue fountain pen ink across the image. Apart from the fact that Rolfe's handwriting is shockingly bad, and always has been, this is in very good condition.
