Donald MacBride

Donald MacBride (June 23, 1889 ? June 21, 1957) was an American character actor on stage, in films and on TV who launched his career as a teenage singer (making several recordings in 1907) in vaudeville and went on to be an actor on Broadway. He appeared in nearly 140 films between 1914 and 1955. His year of birth is given variously as 1889 or 1893 in the standard reference books, but the latter seems to be the correct one as his "New York Times" obituary records his age as 63. ... more on Wikipedia
