i'm listening to Berlin Diary as book-on-tape, and Shirer today mentioned a new year's eve party he attended in 1939, where one of the guests is jack trevor, a british actor who has turned traitor.

i'd not heard of him, so went to wikipedia, where there is not much information at all. to quote:

Quote:
Although winning the Military Cross serving with the Manchester Regiment during World War I, during World War II he made propaganda films for Joseph Goebbels’ ministry, for which he was eventually sentenced to three years’ imprisonment but the sentence was quashed on appeal as he was held to be acting under duress.


and that's it...

so, does anyone know any more? just curious, obviously

Jack Trevor was his stage name - search on "Anthony Cedric Sebastian Steane" or "Anthony Steane MC" and you get results.
