Raymond Walburn (September 9, 1887 – July 26, 1969) was an American character actor who appeared in dozens of Hollywoodcomedies and an occasional dramatic role during the 1930s and 1940s.

Life and career

Born in Plymouth, Indiana, Walburn moved to Oakland, California, and took up acting, the same profession as his mother. His filmography includes nearly 100 films, with his best known roles as a stereotypical bumbler and as a pompous snob. He could also be villainous, as he was when he played Danglars in the 1934 film version of The Count of Monte Cristo, and was a favourite of such celebrated comedy directors as Preston Sturges and Frank Capra, with whom he made several appearances.
