While working in the show, he was noticed by Gene Kelly and was called to Hollywood to audition for him for a part in the film adaptation of the musical Hello, Dolly!

He was cast and shared top billing with Barbra Streisand and Walter Matthau. It went on to win three Academy Awards , was nominated for a further four including Best Picture , and is now considered to be one of the greatest musical films ever.

His later films fared less successfully, although Alice's Adventures in Wonderland , in which he played the White Rabbit, enjoyed moderate success in the UK.

After performing in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland , and with offers of work greatly reduced and much of his salary from Hello, Dolly! During this difficult time, his marriage fell apart and divorce followed in Crawford's acting career took off again after he appeared on the London stage in the farce No Sex Please, We're British , in which he played the part of frantic chief cashier Brian Runnicles.

His performance led to an invitation to star in a BBC television comedy series about a childlike and eternally haphazard man who causes disaster everywhere he goes.

Originally, the part had been offered to comedy actor Ronnie Barker but after he and Norman Wisdom had turned it down, Crawford took on the challenge, adopting a similar characterisation to that which he used when playing Brian Runnicles.

Cast alongside him was actress Michele Dotrice in the role of Frank's long-suffering wife, Betty, and the series premiered in Initially, only two series were produced, from to , while the show's creators felt that it should stop while at its peak.

There was a brief hiatus until popular demand saw it revived for a final series in The immense popularity that followed the sitcom was due perhaps to the unusual amount of physical comedy involved.

Crawford said he had always been a fan of comedians such as Charlie Chaplin , Buster Keaton and Laurel and Hardy , as well as the great sight gags employed in the days of silent film, and saw Some Mothers as the ideal opportunity to use such humour himself.

He performed all of his own stunts during the show's run, and never used a double. This was his first leading man role on the West End stage and helped to cement his career as both a singer and showman.

The part was demanding, requiring proficiency in both song and dance, and in preparation for the role, Crawford began taking both more seriously, studying singing under the tutelage of vocal coach Ian Adam and spending hours perfecting his dancing capabilities with choreographer Onna White.

Billy gave the many fans of Crawford's portrayal of Frank Spencer an opportunity to see him in a broadly similar role on the stage, and was a considerable hit West End performances.

After the closing of Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em , Crawford continued to perform in plays and musicals, starring in Flowers for Algernon in the role of Charley Gordon, based on the book of the same title.

The show did not go over well with his fans: the popularity of Crawford's portrayal of Frank Spencer, and the similar Billy Fisher character, had left him somewhat typecast , to the extent that they could not accept his very different role as Dave Finn.

Crawford abandoned the show during its first series and returned to theatre work. On their television show, critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert featured the film in their round-up of the year's worst films pointing out the less-than-special effects such as the visible harness and cable used to suspend Condorman in the air and the obvious bluescreen effect.

The film performed poorly at the box office but years later gained a cult following among Disney fans. He trained at the Big Apple Circus School in New York City to prepare for the ambitious stunts, learning to walk the tight-rope, juggle and slide down a rope from the rafters of the theatre.

After further training for the second opening of Barnum , he was awarded a British Amateur Gymnastics Association badge and certificate as a qualified coach.

Barnum opened on 11 June at the London Palladium , where it ran for performances. Crawford and Deborah Grant headed the cast. It was well-received, becoming a favourite of Margaret Thatcher as well as the Queen Mother.

After the initial production of the show, he worked extensively with Torvill and Dean , and can be seen rinkside with them as they received their "perfect six" marks in the world championships for their 'Barnum' routine.

In this production, with a new cast, though still headed by Crawford, was recorded for television and broadcast by the BBC. Crawford's Barnum is one of the longest runs by a leading actor.

In , at the final preview of Starlight Express , Crawford happened to run into the show's creator, Andrew Lloyd Webber. Lloyd Webber had met Crawford socially several times and remembered him from his work in Flowers for Algernon.

He informed Crawford that he was working on a new project based on a Gaston Leroux novel and wanted to know whether he was interested.

Crawford said he was, but the show was still in the early planning stages, and nothing had been decided. Several months passed, during which Lloyd Webber had already created a pitch video featuring his then-wife Sarah Brightman as the female lead Christine, and British rocker Steve Harley as the Phantom, singing the title song in the manner of a contemporary new wave video.

Crawford was turned off by that, supposing the songwriter had chosen to do a "rock opera"-inspired spectacle in lieu of a more traditional operatic musical.

Since casting Harley, however, Lloyd Webber had also begun to regret his artistic choices. As production continued on the show, the bulk of the score was revealing itself to be far more classical and operatic, entirely unsuited to Harley's rough, contemporary voice.

Wanting instead a performer with a more classic, melodic voice, as described in the original book, he began yet another search for the perfect actor to play his Phantom.

Crawford's landing of the role was due in large part to the coincidence that Sarah Brightman had taken lessons with the same vocal coach as Crawford.

She and her husband had arrived early for her lesson, and it was while waiting that they chanced to hear Crawford practising the aria Care Selve , from the opera Atalanta by Handel.

Intrigued, Lloyd Webber asked Ian Adam who his student was. Soon after, Crawford was called in for an audition and was hired virtually on the spot.

Many critics were sceptical; Crawford was still largely pigeonholed as the hapless Frank Spencer, and questions were asked about Crawford's ability to manage such a vocally and dramatically demanding role.

In , he began his performance in London at Her Majesty's Theatre , continuing on to Broadway in , and then Los Angeles in Bush in Washington, D.

At the gala, Crawford was presented with a birthday cake it was his 47th birthday. On 29 April , after three and a half years and over 1, performances later, Crawford left the show.

He admits to having been saddened at his departure, and, during the final Lair scene, altered the Phantom's line to "Christine I loved you At the request of Liz Kirschner, wife of film producer David Kirschner , he obtained the role of Cornelius in 20th Century Fox 's animated film Once Upon a Forest , which was produced by her husband.

During his voice over sessions, Michael stated that he had a terrible time singing one of the musical numbers called "Please Wake Up". This was because he had to struggle not to cry when this was being completed, as the scenario was that his character Cornelius was singing to a child who was on the verge of death.

The film was released in cinemas over the summer of Early into the run, Crawford suffered an accident during a performance which involved him sliding from a wire hanger from the back of the theatre all the way to the stage and then jumping down 12 feet 3.

In the late s, Michael began a long-term relationship with Natasha MacAller, an American dancer and chef.

Crawford had a short comeback to Broadway as the Count von Krolock in the short-lived musical Dance of the Vampires — However, he was forced to leave the show three months later because of ill health caused by dehydration resulting from the enormous fat-suit he wore during the performance.
