Henry Daniell was a British-born Hollywood actor with a hard, unsmiling face and rat-trap mouth. A villain par excellence, he could also project sympathy in off-beat leading roles. He was probably run through by more swashbuckling stars than any other villain except Basil Rathbone.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
