Happy Birthday, Adolphe Menjou  (February 18th, 1890 - October 29th, 1963)
"It was my mustache that landed jobs for me. In those silent-film days it was the mark of a villain. When I realized they had me pegged as a foreign nobleman type I began to live the part, too. I bought a pair of white spats, an ascot tie and a walking stick."
