Character actor, Millard Mitchell, was born on Aug 14, 1903 in Havana, Cuba. Mitchell died at the age of 50 on Oct 13, 1953 in Santa Monica, CA and was laid to rest in Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, CA.
Rasp-voiced, short-haired, Cuban-born American actor with sharp, rat-trap, cynical-looking facial features. His image as an acid, but likeable world-weary type had taken him into top featured film roles (such as the producer in Singin' in the Rain) at the time of his death from lung cancer.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Character Actors: an Illustrated Directory).
