Character actor, Richard Haydn, was born George Richard Haydon on Mar 10, 1905 in Camberwell, London. Haydn died at the age of 80 on Apr 25, 1985 in Los Angeles, CA .
Tall, angular, aloof-looking English character actor who cornered the market in prissy professors in the Hollywood of the forties. A former dancer and revue artist, he became an inveterate scene-stealer in comic cameos, and also scored in the occasional serious role, such as his schoolmaster in The Green Years. Also a writer (as Edwin Carp) and director.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Character Actors: an Illustrated Directory).

Caterpillar: I know. I have improoooved it.
