Victor Moore was a stage and screen actor from the 1910s to the 1950s. He had a long and fascinating career! He was born in 1876, and in 1893, had his first stage role, and became a frequent actor in Broadway plays through 1915. That year, he was in Los Angeles on a trip and had an emergency appendectomy, and while recovering he decided to try movies! Moore appeared in several dozen shorts over the next three years, but in 1918, he returned to the stage. He came back to Hollywood after the coming of sound in 1930 (when there was much demand for stage actors in the new talkies), and he had a second notable career as a character actor over that decade, and he continued acting less frequently in the 1940s. He had two memorable roles in Marilyn Monroe movies: as the Justice of the Peace in "We're Not Married" in 1952, and as the plumber trying to help get Marilyn's foot unstuck from the bathtub in "The Seven Year Itch" in 1955 (when Moore was 78 years old!). He passed away in 1962 at the age of 86.
