Todd was never able to repeat his success in the United States, appearing in several films which did not do as well as his first role.

An interesting note about this role - during the war, Todd met with Major John Howard on the Orne Bridge (later renamed as 'The Pegasus Bridge') in Normandy. In the movie, he played Major Howard, and the scene in which Howard met up with Todd appears in the film. In D-Day the Sixth of June, he portrayed the commanding officer of the unit in which Todd and Howard served, and the scene was filmed again.

He has continued an active acting career into his eighties. He was married to the actresses Catherine Grant-Bogle, who he met in Dundee Rep (1949-1970, two children) and Virginia Mailer (1970-1992, two children).
