Denholm Mitchell Elliott, CBE (31 May 1922 – 6 October 1992) was an English film, television and theatre actor with more than 120 film and television credits. His well-known roles included Dr Marcus Brody in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), Coleman in Trading Places (1983) and Mr. Emerson in A Room with a View (1985).
Elliott earned critical acclaim in his later career. He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in A Room with a View, and won the BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in three consecutive years in the 1980s, the only actor ever to have achieved this. Film critic Roger Ebert described him as "the most dependable of all British character actors".
The New York Times called him "a star among supporting players" and "an accomplished scene-stealer".
