Australian-born actor, a versatile talent and noted early Ziegfeld star called "The man with the rubber legs."
Although he thought he wanted to become a physician his medical studies were cut short when he came down with the acting bug. He began touring Australia and New Zealand, performing in anything he could--from circuses to Shakespeare.
In 1905, he arrived in the US and entered the world of burlesque. In 1911, he worked with Flo Ziegfield and traveled to Europe and through the US, performing with the troupe. He perfomed in films as well, at first in the silent film error and later in sound films and television.
He died of a heart attack on 12 October 1951.
