Otherwise he can be seen opening doors in such films as "Call Her Savage" (1932), "Bombshell" (1933), "The Age of Innocence" (1934), "Curly Top" (1935), "Rose-Marie" (1936), "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (1939), "Suspicion" (1941), "Mrs. Miniver" (1942), "Heaven Can Wait" (1943), "Gaslight" (1944), "National Velvet" (1944), "The Secret Garden" (1949), and "Strangers On a Train" (1951). Carey was born in England. He performed on the London stage before arriving in Hollywood in 1930. In all he appeared in 125 films. Carey retired in 1956 and died at the Motion Picture Country Home. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
