Biography | show moreshow less
Henry Armetta (1888-1945) was an illegal-immigrant, 1902-style, stowing away on a boat from Italy. He found success in Hollywood as a character actor, often playing stereotypical, excitable Italians in comedies and not a few dramas, beginning in the silent era. Laurel and Hardy fans may remember his as the flustered innkeeper in The Devil's Brother (1933). His last film, A Bell for Adano, appeared after his death.
