Erik Rhodes’ birthday
Originally shared by Classic Movie Hub
Born Today, February 10, in 1906, Character Actor Erik Rhodes…
„Your wife is save with Tonetti. He prefers spaghetti!” – as Rodolfo Tonetti in The Gay Divorcee
And although most fans probably remember him best as Rodolfo Tonetti in Gay Divorcee AND Alberto Beddini in Top Hat — he was expert in dialects and accents overall, and could convincingly play non-Italian roles as well (i.e. David Scott-Frensham in Mysterious Mr. Moto and Max Corday in Charlie Chan in Paris). Oh, and by the way, he wasn’t born in Italy; he was born in El Reno, Oklahoma Territory.
