Raymond Massey

Born: 30 August 1896, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Died: 29 July 1983, Los Angeles, California, USA
Arsenic and Old Lace (1944) as Jonathan Brewster
Raymond is in heavy make-up here playing the part that Boris Karloff played on Broadway. When the theatre production company wouldn't release Karloff for the film, Massey took the part. The running joke in the film is that he looks like Boris Karloff, which make him angry.
