Raymond Bailey

Born: 6 May 1904, San Francisco, California, USA
Died: 15 April 1980, Irvine, California, USA

Raymond Bailey tried several times to make it in Hollywood, often falling into other jobs instead when success didn't come his way. In 1938, he landed several small parts in big movies with stars like James Stewart, James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart. From there he moved on to bigger character roles. Television was Bailey's big break and Bailey was in demand. He starred in his most famous role towards the end of his career on the hit sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies (1962) as banker Milburn Drysdale.
