Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Doleful-looking, deadpan comic character actor who after earning a law degree from Notre Dame and working as a reporter went on the stage as a supporting player in several Broadway musicals. Butterworth entered films in 1930 and specialized in playing reticent, befuddled and indecisive characters--often rich bachelors--who did not get the girl, most notably as Jeanette MacDonald's nervous suitor in "Love Me Tonight" (1932).
