He appeared in a couple dozen movies between 1932 and 1940. He quit the movies to serve in World War II, and afterwards, in 1946, he became the second major movie actor ever to hold national political office, serving as a Congressman (the first was Helen Gahagan Douglas). In 1950, he became Governor of Connecticut, and later, he served as ambassador to several countries! Some of his movies include: Bank Holiday, The Woman Accused, and Bulldog Drummond At Bay. He passed away in 1985 at the age of 82.
