When and how (and why) did John Stride become an American? He went to school with me at Alleyn's in Dulwich, London, and learned his stagecraft under our English master, Michael Croft. No trace of an American in those days.

Sent this before and it then vanished?? I was in Liverpool in the Philharmonic orchestra when John did his first year with the Liverpool rep. He had another actor friend living in my digs and often came round and at that time 1957 we all got on very well. However he was English I am sure and had a splendid voice and delivery and in the whole time we all knew each other he certainly never said he was an American,Nor did he ever sound like one, so I am sure this info is wrong..I too was sorry he vanished from public life in general and all I can say that whatever the reason was it was far too soon.!! Just wnated to add my four pennyworrth. Patricia.
