Born October 5, 1874 Character Actor George Irving!

George Irving appeared in over 250 roles — and played LOTS of judges & doctors — but I know him best as Mr Peabody in Bringing Up Baby! And, quite frankly, just thinking about it, all I can hear in my head right now is Cary Grant saying
“I’ll be with you in a minute Mr. Peabody!”

George Irving in Bringing Up Baby“Oh, I know we ought to go now but somehow I can’t move.”
-Cary Grant says to Katharine Hepburn as she throws rocks up to ‘Boopie’s’ window (George Irving as Mr Peabody) to wake him up. (Bringing Up Baby, Howard Hawks 1938)
