Cameron came in for a screening of “Pool of London” (1951), the film that provided his breakthrough role, and then amused the audience with stories of his career as he spoke with National Public Radio’s Peter Rainer. Cameron’s accomplishments in both theatre and more than 61 films were celebrated at the event.
“Mr. Cameron has been widely hailed as the most successful black actor that Britain has produced, and rightly so,” says the festival’s director of programming, David O’Beirne. “His career has spanned more than half a century, and he continues to be a working actor today. We’re honored to have Mr. Cameron return to share his vast wealth of experience with us.”
