Henry Victor
Birth: Oct. 2, 1892
London
Greater London, England
Death: Mar. 15, 1945
Hollywood
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Actor. Tall, hulking leading man of British silent films. Although born in London, he was raised in Germany and his heavy accent led him to switch to character roles with the coming of sound. Victor divided his time between England and the United States until 1939, when he settled in Hollywood. Horror buffs will remember him as the villainous circus strongman Hercules in "Freaks" (1932). When World War II broke out he was immediately typecast as a Nazi, a role he delightfully spoofed as the dumb Gestapo Captain Schultz in Ernst Lubitsch's "To Be or Not to Be" (1942). Victor's other credits include "The Picture of Dorian Gray" (title role, 1916), "The Call of the Sea" (1919), "A Bill of Divorcement" (1922), "The Prodigal Son" (1923), "Braveheart" (1925), "The Beloved Rogue" (1927), "One Heavenly Night" (1931), "I Spy" (1934), "The Great Barrier" (1937), "Confessions of a Nazi Spy" (1939), "The Mortal Storm" (1940), "Underground" (1941), "Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon" (1943), "Mission to Moscow" (1943), and "Betrayal from the East" (1945). He died at 52 of a brain tumor. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
