Don Beddoe Overview:

Character actor, Don Beddoe, was born Donald Theophilus Beddoe on Jul 1, 1903 in Pittsburgh, PA. Beddoe died at the age of 87 on Jan 19, 1991 in Laguna Hills, CA .


Apple-cheeked, auburn-haired American actor with small, twinkling blue eyes, seen as impish confederates, excitable reporters or defective detectives. Although he was 35 when he came to Hollywood from Broadway, his cherubic, butter-innocent looks allowed him a good variety of middle-range roles before he moved into old codgers and, in one delightful instance, a leprechaun trapped in a bottle. He had the lead in 1961's Saintly Sinners. Married for the second time at the age of 71, Beddoe, a great traveller, was obviously a believer that life begins any time you choose.
