Clarence Kolb

Acteur né le 31 juillet 1874 (décédé à 90 ans)


Clarence William Kolb was an American vaudeville performer and actor.
He was born in Cleveland, Ohio, the only child of second generation Austrian parents who owned a local meat company.
Kolb started out as one half of a vaudeville comedy team, Kolb and Dill, with Max Dill. They styled their act on the famous team Weber and Fields. In addition to their stage work, they appeared in a series of movie shorts and a feature length movie in 1917. Afterwards, Kolb made a return to vaudeville, and he only returned to the movies in the late 1930s.
He became famous for portraying the same type of character in many movies, namely a politician or businessman. He is best remembered for his role as the grumpy father in the multi-Academy Awards nominated hit comedy film Merrily We Live, the corrupt mayor in the comedy His Girl Friday, and as Mr. Honeywell in the television sitcom My Little Margie. Kolb played himself in his last movie appearance, Man of a Thousand Faces, opposite Danny Beck.
Clarence Kolb died at age 90 from a stroke at the Orchard Gables Sanitarium at 1277 North Wilcox Avenue in Hollywood. He is interred in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, California.
