Oh, what a sweet face.
All right, Fred and Ginger fans. If you don’t know who this babyface gentleman is, allow me to introduce you. He’s Edward Everett Horton, and he was one of the prime character actors/comedians in Hollywood. He appears in The Gay Divorcee, Top Hat, and Shall We Dance with Fred and Ginger in addition to doing lots of comedies and movies on his own.
Eddie was known for his neurotic and fussy characters, most often playing a man of great means and wealth but comically little common sense. He is, however, always harmless and utterly charming. He bumbles very well. He was one of the most famous farceurs in Hollywood for the entire duration of his career. If you’re interested in more about Eddie because who isn’t, then check out Charlie’s blog dedicated to him.
Aw, it’s nice to see Edward Everett Horton posts on tumblr. One of my favorite character actors ever.
And everyone should watch Lost Horizon (1937) at least once in their life. Such a great movie.
Horton hears a wha?
The man could double take with the best of them.
