Oakie (1903-1978), born Lewis Delaney Offield, was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award in 1940 for The Great Dictator. (In a famous scene Oakie, as Mussolini, wrestle's Charlie Chaplin's Hitler for control of a large globe) Oakie, who made his professional debut in the chorus of the 1922 George M. Cohan musical Little Nellie Kelly, appeared in several Broadway productions before making his film debut in 1928. The character actor appeared in a long list of feature films, including The Call of the Wild (1935), The Toast of New York (1937), Little Men (1940), When My Baby Smiles at Me (1948), Around the World in 80 Days (1956), The Rat Race (1960) and Lover Come Back (1961). His trademark catchphrase was "It's all in fun!", which he had imprinted on matchbooks that he gave out to friends and fans he met while working for Paramount Studios.
