Arthur Lake b. Arthur Silverlake (April 17, 1905 - January 9, 1987) was an American actor. He was a native of Corbin, Kentucky. Lake appeared in films starting in the late 1920's, beginning as an adolescent character actor. By the sound era he was playing light romantic roles, usually with a comic "Mama's Boy" tone to them. He is best known for portraying the Blondie comic strip character of Dagwood Bumstead in the long-running series of Blondie films produced by Columbia Pictures from 1938 until 1950. He also portrayed the character in a 1957 Blondie television series. His work in the popular Blondie radio show earned him a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6646 Hollywood Blvd. He died of a heart attack in Indian Wells, California on January 9, 1987 and was interred in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood. He was the brother of actress Florence Lake and a nephew by marriage of Marion Davies.
