Character actor, Samuel S. Hinds, was born Samuel Southey Hinds on Apr 4, 1875 in Brooklyn, NY. Hinds died at the age of 73 on Oct 13, 1948 in Pasadena, CA .
Although one's abiding memory of this American actor remains an image of him stretched out on a slab beneath Bela Lugosi's pendulum in The Raven, in fact he played scores of solid citizens through the 1930s and 1940s. Ironically, fair-haired (turning to silver), affable-looking Hinds was often cast as an attorney - his own profession before turning his hobby of acting into a profitable career in the early 1930s. Occasionally, his honest looks hid a streak of crookedness, a break he no doubt enjoyed after so much kindliness and wisdom.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Character Actors: an Illustrated Directory).
