Actor. Born in Toledo, he was the grandnephew of South African pioneer and former president Paul Kruger. He made his Broadway debut at 15 and later studied acting at Columbia University. He became a well-known character actor who specialized in playing urbane businessmen or suave villians. He retired in the 1960s after a series of strokes. Some of his more memorable films include "Chained" (with Joan Crawford), "Another Thin Man," "Dracula's Daughter" (one of the few films in which he played the lead) and "Duel in the Sun" (with Jennifer Jones).
