Double vision

Peter Mandelson and Ronald Colman

By Alyssa McDonald

Mandelson

Our latest lookalike is a bit of a test of memory/film knowledge. So, for those who are struggling: the English actor Ronald Colman made his name in silent films and “talkies” such as If I Were King. Perhaps a rather fitting title for a man of such Mandelsonian smoothness.
