Andy Devine Facts
Father of Tad Devine and Denny Devine, who played his sons in Canyon Passage (1946).

His high-pitched, gravelly voice was the result of a childhood accident. While running with a stick (some accounts say a curtain rod) in his mouth, he tripped and fell, ramming the stick through the roof of his mouth. For almost a year, he was unable to speak at all. When he did get his voice back, at length, it had the wheezing, almost duo-toned quality that would ultimately make him a star. Another account of his throat injury says he was sliding down the banister in his father's hotel and somehow damaged his throat.

Was an avid pilot and owned a flying school that trained flyers for the government during World War II.
