Charles Everett Horton Jr. was born on 18 March 1886 in Brooklyn, New York City, New York, USA and passed away on 29 September 1970 in Encino, Los Angeles, California, USA.

From IMDB:
It seemed like Edward Everett Horton appeared in just about every Hollywood comedy made in the 1930's. He was always the perfect counterpart to the great gentlemen and protagonists of the movies. Like many of his contemporaries, Horton came to the movies from the theatre, where he debuted in 1906. He made his movie debut in 1922. Unlike many of his silent-film colleagues, however, Horton had no problems in adapting to the sound, despite, or perhaps because of his crackling voice. From 1932 to 1938 he worked often with Ernst Lubitsch, and later with Frank Capra. He has appeared in more than 120 movies, in addition to a large body of work on television, among which was the befuddled Hekawi medicine man Roaring Chicken on the western comedy "F Troop" (1965).
