~Los Angeles Times, 1970~
Edward Everett Horton whose distinctive Yankee elocution and fussy, crinkled-nose mannerisms
were the trademarks of a 63-year acting career.

Although his career was mainly in legitimate theater, his voice was familiar to children watching the
Saturday and Sunday morning cartoon feature "Fractured Fairy Tales," as he narrated.

Horton came to Los Angeles in 1919 to replace Lewis Stone at the old Majestic Theater. Two years
later, he made his first film appearance in the leading role in "Too Much Business."

He was credited with creating the role of Henry Dewlip, a lovable rake, in the production
"Springtime for Henry." The play became known as Horton's vehicle and he played it more than
2,600 times.
