  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 1885

A slight man with an air of perpetual anxiety, character actor William Edmunds was most often cast in stereotypical Spanish and Italian roles. Edmunds' first film, the [[Performer~P33168~Bob Hope~bobhope]] 2-reeler [[Feature~V140630~Going Spanish~goingspanish]] (1934), was lensed in New York; he didn't settle down in Hollywood until 1938. He played bits in films like [[Feature~V24281~Idiot's Delight~idiotsdelight]] (1939) and [[Feature~V8482~Casablanca~casablanca]] (1942), and larger roles in such fare as [[Feature~V23349~House of Frankenstein~houseoffrankenstein]] (1944, as gypsy leader Fejos), [[Performer~P33168~Bob Hope~bobhope]]'s [[Feature~V116642~Where There's Life~wherethereslife]] (1947, as King Hubertus II) and [[Feature~V14447~Double Dynamite~doubledynamite]] (1951, as waiter Groucho Marx's long-suffering boss). His many short subject appearances include a few stints as [[Performer~P82061~Robert "Mickey" Blake~robertblake]]'s father in the Our Gang series. William Edmunds was afforded top billing in the 1951 TV situation comedy [[Feature~V135525~Actors' Hotel~sahkanim]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
