Lionel Belore

Lionel Belmore Lionel Belmore Unlike most people Lionel started his career as a director (1914-1918). Lionel made his career playing bit parts in several 1930s film classics. He was gainfully employed in Hollywood as English butlers, innkeepers, lairds, burgomasters and town elders.
Belmore was in "Frankenstein" (1931) and later showing up on the village council in "Son of Frankenstein" (1939) and "Ghost of Frankenstein" (1942). he would then appear in Warner Bros films "Prince and the Pauper" (1936) and "The Adventures of Robin Hood" (1938). Even though he was given good billing, Belmore appeared in Laurel and Hardy's "Bonnie Scotland" (1935). His role was cut down to him tapping out the Laurel and Hardy theme song on his anvil!

It's Love I'm After (1937) as Friar Lawrence in stage performance with Bette Davis

Lionel Belmore died January 30, 1953 (at the age of 84) in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, California, USA. His final resting place is at Pierce Brothers Valhalla Memorial Park Cemetery in North Hollywood, California, USA.
