Returned to Broadway in 1972, the year he died, in the Phil Silvers-led production of "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.".

Was not originally scheduled to play Ebenezer Scrooge in the MGM classic version of A Christmas Carol (1938). Reginald was a last-minute replacement for the ailing Lionel Barrymore.

Known for his vast portrayals of fictional and non-fictional fellows. Played Dr. Watson in Sherlock Holmes (1932), and then played the super-sleuth himself in A Study in Scarlet (1933), thus making him the only actor to play both roles. Also played King Louis XV in three different films.
