Before starting out as an actor Stanley Morgan had many other jobs as a young man, including sewing machine salesman, debt collector and bank clerk. In 1951, he emigrated to Canada where he spent some time working in the Bank of Nova Scotia. In 1955, he emigrated again, this time to Southern Rhodesia. He started his acting career there, and was later sponsored to return to London following his winning a Best Actor award. Upon his return Morgan featured mostly in B-movies, although he did have a small and memorable role in the James Bond film Dr. No playing the Concierge in the casino who first introduces Sean Connery as James Bond.

Whilst between acting jobs in the late 1960s, Morgan began to write seriously and his first novel The Sewing Machine Man was published in 1968. Allegedly autobiographical, the novel revolved around the character Russ Tobin and Morgan has gone on to write a further 18 novels in the series. The latest of the Russ Tobin novels was published in 2005 after Morgan came out of retirement, mainly due to renewed interest in his work via the internet.
