#Quote
1[on working in television]: I loathe the whole thing, even if it has provided me with bread and margarine for so many years. It seems to me to have had a disastrous effect on mankind and I am quite deliberately planning to spend at least half my remaining years in areas where the goggle box has not yet gained a footing.
2The name is so important for an actor, a foremost part of one's image. I like my name . . . but as an actor, it has often been a detriment. I have been mistakenly billed as Peter Dull, and under my correctly spelled name I've been reviewed as having delivered a performance which was "pure Bull".
#Fact
1Appeared in three films that were nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: Tom Jones (1963), Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) and Doctor Dolittle (1998). Of those, Tom Jones (1963) is a winner in the category.
2In the early 1930s, playing a tiny role in a play called "England Expects", Bull was startled, whilst changing in his dressing-room after the performance, by a stranger, who told him that his performance that night had been the worst he, the stranger, had ever seen. The stranger was Robert Morley; they became close friends immediately, a friendship which lasted until Bull's death over fifty years later.
3He claimed that the sentence most often addressed to him by strangers was, "I know the face, but...", which he said was the inevitable lot of a small-part actor in Britain. He eventually wrote an amusing autobiographical book using this unfinished sentence as its title.
4All his dialogue in "The African Queen" was in German, a language he could not speak; he was dubbed by Walter Rilla.
5He sold the film rights to his comic wartime memoir, "To Sea In A Sieve", to an American film company, and was amused when they suggested that he might be played on-screen, not by himself, but by his friend (and wartime comrade-in-arms) Alec Guinness, who looked nothing like him.
6Noted for his vast and unique collection of teddy bears.
7Served with the Royal Navy during World War II, commanding an anti-aircraft vessel in the Mediterranean. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross in 1945.
8Heavyweight British character actor, a former journalist. First on stage in London in 1933, two years later on Broadway. Acted on screen in both straight and comedy parts.
9In the 60s he made a spoken word recording for Minerva Records in which he read extracts from his Teddy Bear book, "Bear With Me".
10Son of Sir William Bull, MP for South Hammersmith for 30 years
11Author of several humourous books, mostly autobiographical, but also including the standard text on the subject of teddy bears.
