Arthur Hohl Biography

Arthur Hohl (May 21, 1889 - March 10, 1964) was an American 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, but he also played a few sympathetic characters.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 film version of "Show Boat" (1936), and as Mr. Montgomery, the man who helps Richard Arlen and Leila Hyams to make their final escape in Island of Lost Souls (1932). He also played Brutus opposite Warren William's Julius Caesar in Cecil B. DeMille's version of Cleopatra (1934), 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 (1947), and as Journet, a bereaved innkeeper who seeks to avenge his daughter's murder in the Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes film The Scarlet Claw (1944). Hohl also played a Christian named Titus (no relation to Titus Andronicus) in Cecil B. DeMille's religious epic The Sign of the Cross (1932).Many sources claim that Hohl played a monk in the 1943 film classic The Song of Bernadette, but he is nowhere to be seen in the finished film.Hohl also appeared on the Broadway stage in plays by William Shakespeare, George Bernard Shaw, and Henrik Ibsen. Some of his stage roles, such as Sir Andrew Aguecheek in a 1930 Broadway revival of Twelfth Night, were considerably larger than his film roles.

Interesting Facts

1Lean, beady-eyed character actor, often in villainous or bucolic roles.
2Although seldom remembered today, this tall, lanky character actor was quite talented at tackling a wide range of accents which kept him in high demand. His considerable resume during the 1930s is demonstrative of his versatility and included work at Warner's (in three early Cagney hits), Paramount, Columbia, RKO, Universal, MGM, 20th Century Pictures (and later after the Fox merger)... even lowly Mascot.
3He was seen mainly on the Broadway stage between 1917 and 1932, when he permanently abandoned the stage for films. He appeared in several Broadway productions of classic plays, including Ibsen's "Ghosts" and Shaw's "Mrs. Warren's Profession".
