Born 100 years ago today:


You may remember his role as "Number Two" in THE PRISONER episode "Hammer Into Anvil". 

He did much film and TV work, working with the likes of Tony Hancock. There was also the sitcom FATHER, DEAR FATHER.

Definitely a memorable face/talent.

I also remember him from HELP!, where his character was knowledgeable about the Berlin Zoo tiger who could be calmed by people singing "Ode to Joy" (in German)
.

Cargill was particularly brilliant in The Prisoner's Hammer into Anvil episode. From murdering sadist to gibbering wreck in 50 minutes, when you watch his mental deterioration in that episode it is worth remembering that Cargill filmed his scenes out of order. A great actor, much missed.

I remember watching Father Dear Father as a kid, the two
blonde daughters stick in my mind for some reason, and
the St Bernard dog!
