George K. Arthur was an actor from the 1910s to the 1930s. Some of his movies include: The Salvation Hunters, Spring Fever, and Chasing Rainbows. He became a major MGM star in the later 1920s, often appearing with Karl Dane. But because Dane had a thick Danish accent, their team had little success in sound movies. He and Dane appeared in vaudeville together, and after that did not work out, he went into non-acting endeavors, with little success (but at least things went better for him than for poor Karl Dane, who, after no success at all, bought a hot dog cart, and set it up outside MGM studios, where he had been a star, likely thinking he would get much sympathy business, but after a while, he couldn't take the humiliation, and killed himself)! Arthur passed away in 1985 at the age of 86.
