Leo Ernest Britt (27 March 1908 – 1979) was a British-American actor. He made about 40 film and television appearances between 1933 and 1975, both in England and the United States. He is perhaps best-remembered as the storyteller at a party in Alfred Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder (1955). One of his last film roles was General James Scarlett in the historical drama The Charge of the Light Brigade (1968). He became a U.S. citizen in 1955, but returned to England, where he died aged 71.
