In Memorium: Michael Gough

Noted British character actor Michael Gough appeared in well over 100 films, but he is perhaps best known to audiences for his roles in the Hammer Horror films of the '60s and '70s, and for his recurring role as Alfred Pennyworth in four movies of the "Batman" franchise, beginning with Batman (1989) and recurring in Batman Returns, Batman Forever & Batman and Robin. Gough has passed away at the age of ninety-four after an extended illness.

His film roles also include appearances in Anna Karenina, Horror of Dracula, Konga, The Phantom of the Opera, Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors, Trog, The Boys from Brazil, The Legend of Hell House, Out of Africa, The Serpent and the Rainbow, The Age of Innocence, Sleepy Hollow, Corpse Bride and Alice in Wonderland.

Some of his extensive television series work on the BBC network (and other) include appearances in Sherlock Holmes, Julius Caesar, The Adventures of Robin Hood, Count of Monte Cristo, The Saint, The Avengers, Pride and Prejudice, The Protectors, Blakes 7, Brideshead Revisited, Inside the Third Reich, Smileys People, Doctor Who, Inspector Morse and The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones

The Catacombs extends its sincerest condolences to his family, friends and fans.
