From a well-known theater dynasty (his uncle was playwright/actor Frank Craven), Eddie Craven (formerly known as John Edward Craven) made his Broadway debut in 1932. A light leading man who could play comedy as well as drama, Craven was less fortunate in Hollywood, where he struggled mightily to get a foothold. After playing various elevator boys, messengers, and reporters, he was awarded the juvenile lead in Boris Karloff's The Invisible Menace (1938). Unfortunately, Craven's romantic interest in the film, Jane Wyman, was replaced at the last moment by Marie Wilson (of My Friend Irma fame), who gave one of the season's most grating performances. In the end, what should have been a break proved merely forgettable and Craven returned to playing bit parts. Following military service during World War II, he became an illustrator and is perhaps best known today for creating the comic strip Dimestore Daisy.
