    (March 18, 1886-September 29, 1970)
    Born in Brooklyn, New York
    Began as a vaudeville performer in 1906
    Acted in 'Too Much Business (1922),' 'Beggar on Horseback (1925),' 'The Nutcracker (1926),' 'The Hottentot (1929),' 'The Front Page (1931),' 'Trouble in Paradise (1932),' 'Top Hat (1935),' 'Lost Horizon (1937), 'Holiday (1938),' 'Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941),' 'Arsenic and Old Lace (1944),' 'Lady on a Train (1945),' 'Pocketful of Miracles (1961),' 'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963)' and 'Sex and the Single Girl (1964)'
    Narrator for the Fractured Fairy Tales segment of the TV cartoon Rocky and Bullwinkle
    Grandson of Edward Everett Hale, author of 'The Man Without a Country'
    Died of cancer in Encino, CA at age 84
    His facial expressions had a rubbery quality to them.
    His father told him to use his middle name professionally because he figured there may be other actors named Edward Horton, but only one Edward Everett Horton.
    Most of his characters were overly flamboyant, implying gay without actually stating it.
    He portrayed an angel named Messenger 7013 in two separate 1940s films.
    His buffoonish Native American character (Chief Roaring Chicken) on TV's 'F Troop' was the basis for an even more outlandish parody, Chief Screaming Chicken, in a Batman episode.
    He graduated from Columbia University.
    In his first 1922 silent movie he was paid $150 a week, a heck of a lot of money for the time period.
    He was a master at the double take, slowly turning his expression from satisfied to dour.
    His film resume was astounding, appearing in 131 movies between 1922 and 1947.
    He was a quintuple threat, working in motion pictures, theater, radio, television and voice overs for animated cartoons.
    After he died Encino renamed a part of Amestoy Avenue, the dead-end street where he resided, 'Edward Everett Horton Lane.'
    He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
