Henry Armetta Overview:

Character actor, Henry Armetta, was born on Jul 4, 1888 in Palermo, Italy. Armetta died at the age of 57 on Oct 21, 1945 in San Diego, CA .

MINI BIO:

Short, stocky and mustachioed, Henry Armetta, was an Italian-born Hollywood actor who cornered the market in harassed, excitable, voluble foreigners, from the beginnings of the sound era. His early death from a heart attack robbed him of the well-deserved opportunity of carrying a film-filled career through to the end of the studio era. He stowed away on a ship to come to America in 1902.
