Harrison, Rex,

1908–90, English actor. Born Reginald Carey, he entered repertory theater at 16 as an apprentice. Harrison, noted for his suave, insouciant style, has appeared in many plays, including Anne of the Thousand Days (1949), Bell, Book, and Candle (1950), and In Praise of Love (1974). His performance in both the stage (1956) and film (1964) versions of My Fair Lady won enormous popular and critical acclaim. Harrison's other films include The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947), The Fourposter (1952), and Cleopatra (1962).
