Raymond Griffith Facts
On November 25, 1957, he was having dinner at The Masquers Club, a private club for actors and producers in Los Angeles, when he choked on some food and died. The newspapers initially listed his cause of death as a heart attack. An autopsy reveal he died of asphyxia.

His daughter recalls that he was an avid reader of classic literature, and that he probably got much inspiration for the stories of his movies from this interest.

While rarely credited as a writer, Griffith did, in fact, apparently co-write more movies than he appeared in as an actor.
