Actor
    (March 15, 1904-February 27, 1985)
    Born in Burnley, England, United Kingdom
    Birth name was James Patrick Francis O'Malley
    Performed in Broadway shows 'Ten Little Indians' (1944) and 'Dial M for Murder' (1954)
    Acted in 'Lassie Come Home,' 'The White Cliffs of Dover,' 'Son of Flubber,' and 'The Fastest Gun Alive'
    Provided voice work for 'Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad' (1949), 'Alice in Wonderland' (1951) '101 Dalmatians' (1961), 'Mary Poppins' (1964), 'The Jungle Book' (1967), and 'Robin Hood' (1973)
    Regular on 'The Adventures of Spin and Marty' (1955) and later 'The New Adventures of Spin and Marty' (1957)
    Portrayed Mr. Burns on 'My Favorite Martian' (1964-65)
    He was typecast in grandfatherly/uncle roles.
    He emigrated to America to pursue a bandstand career which never panned out.
    Dick Van Dyke claimed he acted as his dialect coach for Bert's - cringe-worthy - cockney accent for Mary Poppins (ironically that same year he would play Rob Petrie's father on an episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show).
    Some websites have credited him with the voice work for Brer Fox in 'Song of the South' over James Baskett, when nothing documented supports this.
    He recorded more than four hundred popular songs in his native England.
    He guest-starred on over 100 television programs.
    He received critical acclaim for his performance on Broadway for 'Ten Little Indians.'
    He had a memorable turn in The Twilight Zone as an alien king who masquerades as a kindly old man and befriends a sick little girl.
    He became a favorite of Walt Disney - who used him regularly, often casting him in multiple parts (as in 'Ichabod and Mr. Toad' or 'Alice in Wonderland').
