Character actor, Raymond Walburn, was born on Sep 9, 1887 in Plymouth, IN. Walburn died at the age of 81 on Jul 26, 1969 in New York City, NY and was laid to rest in Ferncliff Cemetery and Mausoleum in Hartsdale, NY.
Round-faced, brown-haired, mustachioed, pop-eyed American actor, a favorite comic character star of the 1930s and 1940s, often seen as phony military types and jovial confidence tricksters, and constantly surprised at the pricking of his own pomposity of bogusness. Excelled in the low-budget "Henry" comedies of the late 1940s and early 1950s. A most likeable rogue.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Character Actors: an Illustrated Directory).
