This is where comedy actor Alastair Sim lived.

Location: 8 Frognal Gardens, London, NW3 6UX

Description: Acclaimed stage and film actor, Alastair Sim (1900Ė1976) lived here for over 20 years (from 1953 until 1975) and where he experienced his greatest fame.

Sim acted in the first Ealing Comedy, Hue and Cry, in 1946 and continued to appear in many films throughout the 1950s; including the films for which he is perhaps best remembered, The Happiest Days of Your Life (1950) with Margaret Rutherford, Scrooge (1951), The Belles of St Trinianís (1954) and Blue Murder at St Trinianís (1957), in which he played the headmistress Miss Fritton.

He was offered a knighthood but declined it on the grounds that he did not wish to be called Sir Alastair.
