Film producer and director. Born Herbert Sydney Wilcox at Norwood. He fought in the Royal Flying Corps in World War I and entered film production in 1922. He specialised in romantic, light-hearted films, with his protégée and later wife Anna Neagle starring in thirty-two of them. The so-called 'London Series' of films which included 'Spring in Park Lane' and 'Maytime in Mayfair' were amongst his most popular. In the 1950s a combination of financial misfortunes and changing audience tastes led to his bankruptcy. Appointed a C.B.E. in 1951. Died in London.
