Lionel Belmore

Lionel Belmore (May 12 1867, Wimbledon, London, England - January 30 1953, Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, California) was an English character actor and director on stage and in US films of the 1920s and 1930s. In total, he had some 200 titles to his film credit. He was notable as the huffy-puffy Herr Vogel the Burgomaster in Frankenstein (1931).

Unusually, he was a director before he became a prolific actor. He directed from 1914 to 1920, only starring in a limited number of films, until concentrating as an actor from then on.

He was the brother of actress Daisy Belmore. His grave is located at Valhalla Memorial Park Cemetery.
