Win a collection of films starring Stanley Holloway

Born in London in 1890 Stanley Holloway OBE was one of Britain's finest comedy actors. A wide-ranging talent, he was a favourite on both stage and screen by the 1930s, but it was after the Second World War that Holloway produced arguably his finest work on the big screen.

Oscar, Tony and Golden Globe-nominated, the comic is perhaps best remembered for his appearances in a range of Ealing Studios classics such as The Titfield Thunderbolt and Passport to Pimlico, but his work was much more varied, both on screen and off.
