Actor. Although he seldom got screen credit, Hoyt made a delightful impression playing henpecked husbands, bullied clerks, jittery politicians, and other wimpy types. He is memorable as Zeke, the put-upon motel owner in "It Happened One Night" (1934), and in nine films for writer-director Preston Sturges. His credits include "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" (1921), "Camille" (1921), "The Lost World" (1925), "The Beast of the City" (1932), "20,000 Years in Sing Sing" (1933), "Heroes for Sale" (1933), "Magnificent Obsession" (1935), "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town" (1936), "Fury" (1936), "A Star is Born" (1937), "Made for Each Other" (1939), "The Great McGinty" (1940), "Christmas in July" (1940), "The Lady Eve" (1941), "Sullivan's Travels" (1941), "The Palm Beach Story" (1942), "The Miracle of Morgan's Creek" (1944), "Hail the Conquering Hero" (1944), and "The Great Moment" (1944). Hoyt was born in Georgetown, Colorado. He was already established on Broadway as an actor and director when he made his Hollywood debut in 1916. He went on to appear in 275 films, the last being Sturges' "The Sin of Harold Diddlebock" (1947). Hoyt died at the Motion Picture Country Home.
