Character actor, Andy Devine, was born Andrew Vabre Devine on Oct 7, 1905 in Flagstaff, AZ. Devine died at the age of 71 on Feb 18, 1977 in Orange, CA and was cremated and his ashes given to family or friend.
Jolly, roly-poly American actor with unruly light brown hair and unique, croakingly raucous, high-pitched voice - the comic sidekick of many a western. He got into films through being a college football star, liked it, overcame objections to the effectiveness of his voice in sound films, and stayed to cheer up more than 150 of them. Death caused by cardiac arrest.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Character Actors: an Illustrated Directory).

Danny McGuire: The program tonight's gonna be swell. Take this fella Beethoven: I'm a pushover for him. And Chopin - well, he's not so dusty, either.
