American portrayer of the meek and mild who came to Hollywood in early silent days and stayed for 45 years. He was educated at a military academy, but was already winning film roles at 18 and soon began playing characters many years older than his own age, usually subservient and timid, but sometimes interfering, short-tempered, and self-opinionated. Considered a great make-up wizard in silent days, he was also a talented writer who contributed occasionally to screenplays. His middle name was Rameses.
