About Byron Kay Foulger

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byron_Foulger

Byron Kay Foulger[1] (27 August 1899 – 4 April 1970) was an American film character actor.

He was born in Ogden, Utah. Foulger attended the University of Utah, and started acting through his participation in community theatre.[2] Foulger was of the Mormon faith[3]. He made his Broadway debut in March 1920 in a production of Medea featuring Moroni Olsen, and performed in four more productions with Olsen on the 'Great White Way',[4] back-to-back, ending in April 1922.[5] He then toured with Olsen's stock company, and ended up at the Pasadena Playhouse, where he both acted and directed.[2]

Foulger made his first three films in 1932 and 1936 with small roles in Night World (1932), The Little Minister, and The President's Mystery, the latter based on a story by Franklin Delano Roosevelt. However, his film career did not start in earnest until 1937 after he performed opposite Mae West in a racy 'Adam and Eve' sketch on the Edgar Bergen-Charlie McCarthy network radio program which resulted in West being banned from the airwaves almost immediately. (Foulger played the voice of the serpent.) From this point on, Foulger worked steadily in motion pictures.
