Early life[edit] Mitchell was born in Stoke Newington, London. His father was a glass and china merchant. He was of Russian Jewish descent[2] (originally surnamed "Misell"[3]) and described himself in an interview as an atheist, but also stated that he "enjoy[ed] being Jewish".[4] He was interested in acting from an early age and attended Gladys Gordon's Academy of Dramatic Arts in Walthamstow
Walthamstow
from the age of seven. He did well at Southgate County School (now Southgate School),[5] a state grammar school at Palmers Green, Middlesex. He then studied physical chemistry at University College, Oxford, for six months. There he met his contemporary, Richard Burton, and together they joined the Royal Air Force in 1944. He completed his navigator training in Canada
Canada
just as the Second World War
Second World War
ended.[6] Career[edit] Richard Burton's description of the acting profession had convinced him that it would be better than completing his chemistry degree and so Mitchell attended RADA for two years, performing in the evening with London's Unity Theatre. After a short stint as a DJ on Radio Luxembourg, in 1951, Mitchell became a versatile professional actor with straight and comedy roles on stage, radio, film and television. His first broadcast was as a regular on the radio show Educating Archie, and this led to appearances in both the radio and television versions of Hancock's Half Hour. By the late '50s, he regularly appeared on television: as Sean Connery's trainer in boxing drama Requiem for a Heavyweight (1957), with Charlie Drake
Charlie Drake
in the sitcom Drake's Progress (BBC, 1957) and a title role in Three 'Tough' Guys (ITV, 1957), in which he played a bungling criminal. He also appeared in several episodes of Armchair Theatre. During the first of these, Underground (1958), one of the lead actors died during the live performance.[7] He also had roles in The Avengers in addition to many ITC drama series including: William Tell, The Four Just Men, Sir Francis Drake, Danger Man
Danger Man
and as a recurrent guest in The Saint.[6] His cinema début was in Guy Hamilton's Manuela (1957), and he began a career of minor roles as sinister foreign agents, assisted by his premature baldness and facility with Eastern European accents. He appeared in The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone
The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone
(José Quintero, 1961), Carry On Cleo

(1964) and Help! (Richard Lester, 1965) and played leads in All the Way Up
All the Way Up
(James MacTaggart, 1970), The Chain (Jack Gold, 1984), The Dunera Boys (Ben Lewin, 1985) and Foreign Body (Ronald Neame, 1986).[6] In 1965, Mitchell was cast in the role for which he became best known, as the Conservative-voting, bigoted cockney West Ham United supporter Alf Garnett in a play for the BBC
BBC
Comedy Playhouse series, broadcast on 22 July 1965. This was the pilot edition of the long-running series Till Death Us Do Part, with Gretchen Franklin, Una Stubbs
Una Stubbs
and Antony Booth. The part of Mum, played by Franklin, was recast with Dandy Nichols in the role when the programme was commissioned as a series.[8] Mitchell's real life persona was different from Alf Garnett, being Jewish, Labour-voting and a staunch supporter of Tottenham Hotspur.[citation needed] The show ran from 1966 to 1975, in seven series, making a total of 53 30-minute episodes. While the series aimed to satirise racism, it actually also gained the support of many bigoted racists who perceived Alf as "the voice of reason".[9] Mitchell had a long and distinguished career on stage and television. Other small screen roles included a 13-episode series, Men of Affairs with Brian Rix
Brian Rix
(ITV, 1973–74), based on the West End hit farce Don't Just Lie There, Say Something! There were also performances in 1975 in Play for Today

in The Merchant of Venice (BBC, 1980) and Gormenghast. In 2001, he appeared in a Christmas Special
Special
episode of Last of the Summer Wine, "Potts in Pole Position".[12] In the early 1970s, Mitchell appeared as a team captain on the television comedy panel game show Jokers Wild, opposite Les Dawson.[13] He was a subject of the television programme This Is Your Life in 1972 when he was surprised by Eamonn Andrews. On stage he received extensive critical acclaim for his performances as Willy Loman

BBC
series In Sickness and in Health (1985–92). He also reprised his role as Alf Garnett in 1983 in the television series The Main Attraction where comedians recreated their famous acts from their past in front of a live and television audience (similar to An Audience with... that began in 1976). In 1997 he played the role in An Audience with Alf Garnett. The same year, ITV aired a series of mini-episodes called A Word With Alf, featuring Alf and his friends. All the TV shows and both films were written by Johnny Speight. When Speight died in 1998, the series was cancelled at Mitchell's request. In 2008, at the age of 82, Mitchell was performing, alongside Ross Gardiner at the Trafalgar Studios, in London's West End, as a retired dry-cleaner in Jeff Baron's portrait of Jewish-American life Visiting Mr. Green.[18][19] Awards[edit] In 1976, his one-man show The Thoughts of Chairman Alf won the Evening Standard Theatre Award for best comedy in London's West End.[20] In 1982, he received an Australian Film Institute Award for best supporting actor in the film Norman Loves Rose.[21] He received two Laurence Olivier

Theatre Awards—for playing Willy Loman

in Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman

Death of a Salesman
also won him an Evening Standard Theatre Award and was highly praised by Peter Hall. Miller reportedly described Mitchell's performance as "one of the best interpretations of the part he had ever seen."[19]

Personal life and death[edit] Mitchell was a patron of the British Humanist Association.[22] In 1951 he married[23] Constance M. Wake, an actress who appeared in early 1960s television dramas such as Maigret. They had three children.[18][24] For over twenty years, Mitchell suffered pain from nerve damage, caused by transverse myelitis,[25] and was a supporter of the Neuropathy
Neuropathy
Trust.[26] He suffered a mild stroke in August 2004. He was back onstage a week later, reprising his lauded role as a cantankerous old Jew in Arthur Miller's The Price.[27] Mitchell died in Highgate, London, on 14 November 2015 after a long illness, two months before his 90th birthday.[28] Filmography[edit]
