Grant Mitchell, 1874-1957

I've mentioned quite often that I'm a fan of character actors, as they bring so much to the movies of the 1930s and 1940s. One of the underrated character actors, Grant Mitchell, was born on this day in 1874. Needless to say, I've mentioned several of his performances before. One that's showing up overnight tonight on TCM is Wild Boys of the Road, in which he plays Frankie Darro's father; that's airing at 4:45 AM ET tomorrow. He's also got a brief appearance at the end of Dinner at Eight; that's going to be airing at 8:00 AM ET on June 28.
