Character actor, Arthur Treacher, was born Arthur Veary Treacher on Jul 23, 1894 in Brighton, East Sussex. Treacher died at the age of 81 on Dec 14, 1975 in Manhasset, NY and was laid to rest in unknown Cemetery.
A tall, dark-haired and long-faced British actor, Arthur Treacher came to America in 1926 and, in the next decade, became Hollywood's perfect butler -- complete with upper-crust voice and unflappable manner. He actually played P. G. Wodehouse's Jeeves twice, but from 1940 was less busy, and began to devote more time to television and outside interests. He built up a chain of up-market fish-and-chip shops in America (yes, Arthur Treacher's Fish and Chips) at the time of his death from heart ailment.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
