From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Melvyn Edouard Hesselberg (April 5, 1901 – August 4, 1981), better known as
Melvyn Douglas, was an American actor.
Coming to prominence in the 1930s as a suave leading man (perhaps best typified
by his performance in the 1939 romantic comedy Ninotchka), Douglas later
transitioned into more mature and fatherly roles as in his Academy Award-winning
performances in Hud (1963) and Being There (1979).
