Birth: Jan. 28, 1907
Death: Oct. 26, 1966
North Hollywood
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Charming, handsome actor whose career started in the late silent era as a leading man and continued into sound features and finally television. Born in Illinois, Mr. Morton spent his adolescence in Madison, Wisconsin, receiving his education at Madison High School and the University of Wisconsin. Making his first stage appearance at the age of seven with his parents, the Team of Morton and Mudge, he later appeared in stock, vaudeville and on the legitimate stage. Both his exceptional appearance and buoyant personality were noted by the studios and at the age of 20 signed his first contract with Fox in 1927. In 1928, he co-starred in John Ford's "Four Sons" as well as in reknown lost film, "4 Devils" directed by FW Murnau. Sadly, after 1933 Mr. Morton's career began to lose momentum and by 1936 his roles were significantly reduced until playing small support roles as well as doing stunt work. This continued until his death from arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease in his apartment on 4160 Arch Drive in North Hollywood. (Unfortunately, the original building appears to have been either remodeled extensively or replaced.) Mr. Morton had been married and divorced twice. Cremated, his ashes were interred nine days after his death. As of 2014, they still remain unmarked. (bio by: Melissa)
