My name is John Cooper, a freelance writer. I am researching the life of George Arliss, a well known British actor of screen and theatre. He lived from 1868 to 1946, and was the first British actor to win an Academy award.

Arliss lived in Exmouth, at Linksway, in Douglas Avenue, which is now a Nursing Home.

I stayed at Linksway, then a hotel, in the early 1970s when it was then run by a Mr and Mrs House.

I should very much like to know the period of time that George Arliss lived at the property.

Some of the ladies who staff the Exmouth Museum remember the actor driving around the town in his Rolls Royce in the mid-1930s. I should be grateful for any information regarding this truly great actor.
