Herbert Mundin Overview:

Character actor, Herbert Mundin, was born on Aug 21, 1898 in St. Helens, Lancashire. Mundin died at the age of 40 on Mar 5, 1939 in Van Nuys, CA and was laid to rest in Inglewood Park Cemetery in Inglewood, Los Angeles County, CA.


Short, dark-haired, often mustachioed British actor with the common touch, facially not unlike the present-day British comedian Ronnie Corbett. A concert-party and music-hall comedian, he soon won popularity in early British talkies and decided to go to Hollywood, which kept him equally busy, most notably as the man-servant in Cavalcade, Barkis in David Copperfield, and the chirpy Much the Miller in The Adventures of Robin Hood. Killed in a car crash.

Herbert Mundin Facts
A popular character actor, Mundin died in Van Nuys, California in a car crash. He was killed instantly when the car in which he was riding collided with another car at a street intersection. The force of the impact threw open the door and hurled Mundin to the street. He received a fractured skull and crushed chest. The other occupants of the car were not injured. Mundin was just 40 years old.

Memorable as one of Robin's Merrie Men, for his bumbling, shy but obvious flirtation with Maid Marian's lady-in-waiting (portrayed by the wonderfully fidgety Una O'Connor in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938).
