*Frederick Treves*, who had a rich career on stage, screen, and television, has died aged 86. I saw him on the stage often, first in David Hare's play Plenty at the National Theatre, London, though he may have first come to the attention of American audiences as Col. John Layton, the father of Sara and Susan Layton in The Jewel in the Crown.

Treves was actually the the great nephew and namesake of Dr Frederick Treves, the surgeon who became famous for discovering and befriending Joseph Merrick, best known as the "Elephant Man" (played in the David Lynch film by Anthony Hopkins).

 

You may also recall that, when the film was shown on AMC, in his introductions the hapless Bob Dorian would pronounce the poor doctor's name "TREV-ehss" instead of the correct "TREEVZ."
