  • A former stock company juvenile, Hugh Sothern (born Roy Sutherland) returned to acting in 1937 after years of heading his own brokerage firm. Gray-haired and distinguished, Sothern played President Andrew Jackson in Cecil B. DeMille's gargantuan The Buccaneer (1938) and was then unmasked as the villainous master criminal The Lightning in the serial The Fighting Devil Dogs (1938). There were more action serials to come, including Captain America (1944), and a few B-Westerns as well. Sothern retired in 1944.
