John Osborne (1929-1994) was a British playwright and actor whose 1958 play Look Back in Anger marked a transformation in British theatre, inaugurating a concern with everyday life (so-called 'kitchen sink dramas'); Osborne himself was categorised by the media as the leader of a somewhat artificial movement known as the 'Angry Young Men': working class and lower middle class writers and artists, educated at grammar schools and redbrick universities, supposedly railing against the upper-class, public school and Oxbridge domination of British cultural life.

In 1971 he played gang boss and pornographer Cyril Kinnear in the film Get Carter.[1]
