Born in San Francisco, Walter Catlett ended 30 years on the legitimate stage when he made his film debut in 1929. Since then he had been characterized as the fidgety, google-eyed comic in scores of motion picture roles.

In 1930, Catlett signed a long-term contract to direct a series of comedy shorts for RKO, but he bowed out a short time later to launch his three-decade career as a character actor in feature films.

Catlett's screen credits include "Up in Arms," "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town" and "Davy Crockett and the River Pirates."
