Actor. He began his career on Broadway in the 1920s and organized the Moroni Olsen Players, one of the most prestigious touring stock companies in the business. He first came to films in the role of Porthos in the "The Three Musketeers" (1935), and followed in the comedy "Mummy's Boy" (1936). Thanks to his aristocratic bearing and classically trained voice, he was often called upon to play historical or authority figures. These included Buffalo Bill in "Annie Oakley" (1935), Robert E. Lee in "Santa Fe Trail" (1940), a general in "Air Force" (1943), and Sam Houston in "Lone Star" (1952). Throughout his Hollywood career, he was active as a director and performer with the Pasadena Playhouse and was the guiding creative force behind Hollywood's annual Pilgrimage Play. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
