#Fact
1Character actor, on stage from 1906 at the Comedy Theatre in London. Noted for playing nervous or edgy characters, bullies, cowards and blackmailers. Used by Hitchcock in three of his early films. He had a strong screen presence and distinctive diction.
2During the filming of Spanish Eyes (1930) in 1930, Donald Calthrop invited a chorus girl, named Nita Foy, to his dressing room for drinks during a break. Nita stepped too near the stove and her costume caught on fire, and she burned to death. Donald, who was married, faced the additional horror of explaining to his wife why Nita was in his dressing room to start with. Supposedly the situation led to the end of Donald's marriage and the beginning of his drinking problem.
3Grandson of Dion Boucicault.
