Conservatively attired in a three-piece suit and Hoover collar, with a pince-nez firmly perched on his upper nose, American actor Paul Stanton was the very model of a small-town rotarian, banker, or school principal. After a brief fling at films in 1915, Stanton began his movie career proper in 1934, remaining before the cameras until 1949. He spent most of the '30s at 20th Century Fox, with such occasional side trips as Columbia's The Awful Truth (1937), in which he played the nonplused judge presiding over Irene Dunne and Cary Grant's divorce. At MGM in the 1940s, he served as an excellent foil for the undignified antics of the Marx Brothers (The Big Store, 1941) and Laurel and Hardy (Air Raid Wardens, 1943). Usually a pillar of respectability, Paul Stanton turned in a surprising characterization in the Universal comedy-mystery She Gets Her Man (1945), playing a genial general practitioner whose hobby is homicide.
