Jack Hulbert was born in Ely on April 24th, 1892. He was educated at Westminster and Cambridge, where he joined the amateur theatrical group, and decided that as he had a natural talent for entertaining others, he might as well earn his living by it. In 1913 he made his professional debut in The Pearl Girl, in which a leading role was taken by Cicely Courtneidge, who was destined to become famous with him and to be his wife. After the War, he returned to a successful career, and later took up film work with even greater success, his best-known pictures including Falling for You and The Camels Are Coming.
