Born on 8 January 1924 in Tottenham, North London (as Ronald Moodnick), Ron Moody is perhaps best known to generations of filmgoers as the villainous yet lovable rogue Fagin in Lionel Bart’s Academy Award-winning Oliver! (1968).
On stage from 1952, he specialised in revue and first played Fagin in the original stage version in 1960.
The following year the BBC offered Moody his own musical sitcom series in which he appeared with a small company of players; actors, singers and dancers. The series ran for six weeks and each was a self-contained programme that featured a different setting – Storeland, Tin Pan Alley, Clock Factory Land, Theatreland, Musketeerland and Teleland.
The series was simply awful.
