Death: Oct. 14, 1958

American Motion Picture Actor. He earned cinematic fame as a comic drunk despite being a teetotaller. Norton entered films in 1934 often playing stone-cold sober characters as well. The Jack Norton which audiences loved was first seen in "Cockeyed Cavaliers" (1934). Norton would actually follow a drunk for blocks, memorizing each movement in order to perfect his character. He played sober roles in "You Belong to Me" (1940), "The Fleet's In" (1941), "Sin of Harold Diddlebock" (1946), "The Awful Tooth" (1938), "Heather and Yon" (1944) and the Three Stooges' "Rhythm and Weep" (1946). He retired from films in 1948 due to illness.
