An underrated character actor.
- Paul Donahue
Mr. Davenport in a number of films, has consistently been / played a pivotal role in his films, in spite of limited screen time. He enriched the films he acted in and created a tone which could not be duplicated by other period actors.
My all time favorite character actor!!!!!!!!!!
- Dennis Shea
Mr Davenport was always the wisdom and all that was good in the movies I saw him in. He was the qintecential grampa! This man made 13 movies in 1939 and 12 the year before and the list of all time great films he apeared in is second to none. I think Harry should get his own month on TCM !! Actually TCM should start charactors of the month starting with Harry and maybe Una Oconner,C. Aubrey Smith , J. Carrol Nash, Thomas Mitchell , Henry Traves to name a few.
once you see him
- michael york
you cant forget him no matter what size the role so many years of stage experience-including noel cowards hay fever-is brought to the screen with so much delight and wisdom who can ever forget his important role as dr meade in gwtw? or his warm loving grandpa smith in meet me in st louis the highlight of the film to me is when he takes esther to the dance his roles could be big pr small but he always made an impression i wish he would get a salute on tcm
