He does pop up in some odd places. I highly recommend the 1938 British thriller They Drive By Night (not to be confused with the Raft/Bogart film of the same name, which was retitled The Road to Frisco in the UK), in which Thesiger plays a killer sex maniac. As a British proto-noir (Emlyn Williams is wrongly accused of killing his wife upon his release from prison) it's very good, and I love the detail of the titles on Thesiger's bookshelf, including one called "Sex in Prison"!
