"Maxwell Caulfield is the ideal spider in the web", wrote one critic, saying he [Caulfield] was "as disarming of himself as he is of others - which gives this revival that tragic tinge of great comedy."
Maxwell Newby was born to Oriole Rosalind (née Findlater) and Peter Newby on 23 November 1959 in Belper, Derbyshire — although he later claimed to be a native of Glasgow, reportedly to be "more interesting". By 1965, his parents had divorced. Although not a child actor per se, aged around seven he played "Ted" (under the name Maxwell Findlater, using his mother's maiden name) in the 1967 film, Accident.
