Cambridge-educated Paul Cavanagh appeared in pictures as the epitome of the debonair, well-dressed Englishman. The former barrister and Royal Canadian Mountie turned to acting in 1924 and had a starring role on Broadway in 'Scotland Yard' (1929). His film career began in 1928 and lasted just over three decades. During that time, he portrayed charming grifters (Le retour de Sophie Lang (1934), stalwart leading men (Mae West's love interest in Je veux être une lady (1935), as well as the occasional murder victim or dastardly swine (as Martin Arlington in Tarzan et sa compagne (1934). He was at his best however, as the urbane older husband of Joan Crawford in the brilliant Humoresque (1946), tolerating the antics of his neurotic wife - and Oscar Levant's wisecrack ("Does your husband interfere with your marriage?") with nothing but bemused languor.
