Audiences saw him in his last and perhaps most famous role---the Old King in "The Thief of Bagdad"---more than a year after he died.
In a career that spanned over sixty years, he was probably best remembered for playing affable "fruity" aristocrats.
At the time of his death he was thought to have been the oldest film star in Britain.
On stage from 1878.
According to the director Michael Powell, who directed him in his final picture, "The Thief of Bagdad", Selten was an illegitimate son of the then 19-year-old Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII (1841-1910) of England.
