There's some article about him commenting on his brilliant CV saying ..not bad for an old drunk..Ron Wood in his biog writes about seshs with John. My favourite role Winston Smith I think with the old Welsh drunk:)

he was excellent in "1984". I'd read the book just a few months before the film came out, and he was exactly how I would have envisaged Winston Smith both looking and acting.

Nonetheless my favourite appearances of his career were as Timothy Evans in "10 Rillington Place" (speaking of Welsh drunks) and as high-class pimp Stephen Ward in "Scandal". The latter role can't have been an easy one to nail but he was supremely smarmy in it.
