Gaunt character actor William Wagner appeared in nearly 50 feature films -- some of them major productions -- between 1932 and 1948, usually in small roles and bit parts as butlers, anonymous clerks, persnickety store managers, and other such roles. He was only credited in one of them, for his work as the Reverend Turner in the 1938 Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm starring Shirley Temple, and is scarcely remembered in any of them. Millions of people, however, will remember Wagner for his work in three Our Gang/Little Rascals short subjects, as the greedy store owner who tries to steal Pete the dog from the kids in For Pete's Sake (1934); the angry property owner who makes the mistake of sneezing around Stymie's mule Algebra in Honkey Donkey (1934); and the equally unpleasant businessman who tries to drive kindly lemonade seller Gus Leonard out-of-business in The Lucky Corner (1936).
