Rex Harrison - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (788 words)
Harrison was born in Huyton on Merseyside and was educated at Liverpool College.
Although Harrison's acting was often described as limited, he attracted favourable notices for his portrayal of Julius Caesar in Cleopatra (1963) and as Pope Julius II in The Agony and the Ecstasy (1965), opposite Charlton Heston as Michelangelo.
Harrison's affair with young actress Carole Landis, which is suspected to have played some part in her suicide, caused a scandal but failed to derail his career.
