Halliwell Hobbes


Herbert Halliwell Hobbes made his stage debut in 1898 with Sir Frank Benson, and this was the start of his career in Shakespeare as he toured with the Benson Company. His real career and the one he is most noted for did not begin until 1929 in Hollywood when he played a part in his first film. Between 1929 and 1956 he appeared in 109 films—one of those character actors one remembers seeing many times in the movies.
