British actor and director Olivier, Laurence Kerr was hailed by many as the greatest actor of the 20th century.
His breakthrough came in Noel Coward's Private Lives (1930), and in Romeo and Juliet (1935). He gained international movie stardom and the first of 10 Academy Award nominations for his portrayal of Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights (1939).
He followed this with popular romantic leads in Rebecca and Pride and Prejudice (both 1940), Henry V (1944), for which he received a special Oscar. Hamlet (1948) which won Oscars for best actor and best picture. Richard 111(1955) and Othello, (1965). Olivier also starred in several plays and films with his second wife, Vivien Leigh.
Olivier was knighted in 1947, and in 1970 he was elevated to a life peerage, the first of his profession to be so honoured.
