Vaughan Glaser spent many of the pre-WW I years as a stock company actor/manager in his native Georgia. One of Glaser's personal triumphs during this era was landing baseball star (and fellow Georgian) Ty Cobb for an acting role in the stage play The College Widow. When he set up the Sunbeam Motion Picture Company in 1916, Glaser's first--and apparently last--production was Somewhere in Georgia, again starring Ty Cobb. Glaser's Hollywood career began in 1939, when he re-created his Broadway role as ulcerated high-school principal Bradley in What a Life. When this film resulted in Paramount's "Henry Aldrich" series, Glaser came along for the ride, playing Bradley in most of the "Aldrich" installments. He was also seen as Judge Scoggs in Those Were the Days (1940) and in supporting roles in a brace of Frank Capra productions, Meet John Doe (1941) and Arsenic and Old Lace (1941). Disciples of Alfred Hitchcock will remember Vaughan Glaser as the sightless Philip Martin in Saboteur (1942).
