Maurice Evans

Maurice Herbert Evans (1901–1989) was an English actor noted for his interpretations of Shakespearean characters.

He took a stage production of Hamlet to Broadway in 1938 and later acted as a defence witness in a plagiarism law suit filed by Irving Fiske against Alfred Hitchcock, which went to court in New York in October 1954.

Evans also starred in the first stage adaptation of Frederick Knott's Dial M for Murder, alongside Anthony Dawson and John Williams who both reprised their roles in Hitchcock's film version of the play.
