Robert Burton Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Aug 13, 1895
  • Died: Sep 29, 1964

American actor Robert Burton had the haunted eyes and funereal manner of a city coroner. As such, his film roles were confined to such stock parts as the crooked politician, the unfeeling physician, the self-absorbed scientist, the crooked attorney, the weakling politician, the hidden killer, or the surly fellow whom the heroine shouldn't have married. Burton's movies seldom made the "classic" category; while he appeared in several "A" films like [[Feature~V5428~The Big Heat~thebigheat]] (1953), [[Feature~V74927~Compulsion~compulsion]] (1959) and [[Feature~V31268~The Manchurian Candidate~themanchuriancandidate]] (1962) (appearing in the latter as the convention chairman in the climactic assassination sequence), most of his movies were along the lines of [[Feature~V76045~I Was a Teenage Frankenstein~iwasateenagefrankenstein]] (1957) and [[Feature~V25285~Invasion of the Animal People~rymdinvasionilappland]] (1962) (for which he was top-billed). Robert Burton was also a frequent TV guest star, though his credits should not be confused with those of soap-opera regular Robert "Skip" Burton. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
