  • 1934
    Age 50
    When the Production Code took effect on July 1, 1934, the "pansy" characters played by Arthur were banned from all Hollywood movies.
    More Details Hide Details He spent the rest of the 1930s playing fussy, long-suffering wimps, albeit certifiably "masculine roles". This new character served him well in low-budget films like The Ghost Walks, The Natzy Nuisance, Ellis Island and Danger on the Air, as well as big budget pictures like Crime and Punishment and Road to Singapore.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1923
    Age 39
    Born John Lennox Arthur Williams in Scottdale, Pennsylvania, Arthur was a veteran of twenty-five years on stage before he made his screen debut in 1923's The Unknown Purple.
    More Details Hide Details Arthur's screen personality was nebulous enough to allow him to play the romantic lead in the Lon Chaney vehicle The Monster (1925). With the coming of sound, Arthur developed his first comedic image, a limp-wristed, ultra-effeminate "Nancy Boy" in films such as The Desert Song (1929), She Couldn't Say No (1930), and Penrod and Sam (1931).
