Short Biography:
British writer/director Anthony Kimmins was a naval officer in World War I, and after the war became a film actor and playwright. He wrote and directed several films for British comedian George Formby in the 1930s, but with the outbreak of World War II Kimmins rejoined the Royal Navy and spent the duration in the service. With the end of the war Kimmins returned to the film industry, but his output was somewhat erratic, ranging from the excellent and well-received psychological thriller Mine Own Executioner (1947) to the major flop Bonnie Prince Charlie (1948). His final film, The Amorous Mr. Prawn (1962), was an adaptation of his stage farce that was a hit on the West End.
