~Biography~
A former dentist, Robert Dudley began appearing in small supporting roles on screen around 1917 (he
played a clerk in the first screen version of the mystery-comedy Seven Keys to Baldpate) and would
appear in literally hundreds of films until his retirement in 1951. Often cast as jurors, shopkeepers,
ticket agents, and court clerks, the typical Dudley character displayed a very short fuse. Of all his,
often minuscule performances, one, in particular, stands out: the apartment-hunting "Wienie King"
in Preston Sturges' hilarious The Palm Beach Story (1942).
