Some iconic English "Georges" (fact or fiction, past or present, living or dead) for St George's Day. Each one represents something quintessentially English.
Pictured above: George Cole (b. 1925) as Arthur Daley in the Euston Films TV series, Minder (1979-84). Cole played an earlier iteration of a similar character, the spiv, Flash Harry, in Belles of St Trinian's (1954) and Blue Murder at St Trinian's (1957), The Pure Hell of St Trinian's (1960) and The Great St Trinian's Train Robbery (1966). Incidentally, "Spiv" is the only word in common English usage that ends with the letter "v".
