Victor Moore was a comedian who was known for his round face and elf-like smile.

He appeared in hundreds of motion pictures and gained his greatest Broadway acclaim for his portrayal of Vice President Alexander Throttlebottom in the prize winning musical "Of Thee I Sing."

Moore started making motion pictures in 1916, almost always playing gentle and retiring comedians with a jovial smile.

He started acting at 17, answering an advertisement for "50 tall men for supers" to play in "Babes in the Wood." Moore recalled that he got the job because he was standing on a paving stone, but added: "When they got me in full armor and handed me a long spear, I realized why they wanted tall men."

Later, he played in vaudeville and motion pictures and on Broadway.
