Arthur Hohl


Arthur Hohl

Arthur Hohl (May 21 1889 - March 10 1964) was a stage and motion-picture character actor. He was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and began appearing in films in the early 1920s. He played a great number of villainous or mildly larcenous roles, although his screen roles usually were small. His talented for mimicking a wide range of accents kept him in high demand with the studios.

Hohl's two performances seen most often today are as Pete, the nasty boat engineer who tells the local sheriff about Julie (Helen Morgan) and her husband's (Donald Cook) secret interracial marriage in the 1936 adaptation of "Show Boat", and as Brutus opposite Warren William's Caesar in Cecil B. DeMille's 1934 version of "Cleopatra", starring Claudette Colbert. Among his other notable roles were as Olivier, King Louis XI's right-hand man, in "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (1939), as the real estate agent in Charlie Chaplin's "Monsieur Verdoux", and as Journet, a bereaved innkeeper who seeks to avenge his daughter's murder in the Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes film "The Scarlet Claw".

Hohl also appeared on the Broadway stage in plays by William Shakespeare, George Bernard Shaw, and Henrik Ibsen.
