Character actor, Dudley Digges, was born on Jun 9, 1879 in Dublin, Ireland. Digges died at the age of 68 on Oct 24, 1947 in New York City, NY .
Small, dapper, often mustachioed Irish actor much in demand in the Hollywood of the 1930s. Could be downtrodden, downright evil (as in the 1931 The Maltese Falcon), wise, shifty, dogged, or devoted - few escaped typecasting more effectively. Perhaps because of this, however, his career in films faded by the end of the decade. Died after a stroke.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Character Actors: an Illustrated Directory).
