    (November 17, 1905-March 5, 1967)
    Born in St. Petersburg, Russia
    Birth name was Mikhail Unskovsky
    Grandson of violinist Leopold Auer
    Appeared in the films 'Something Always Happens' (1928), 'Command Performance' (1931), The Monster Walks' (1932), 'Drums Along the Mohawk' (1932), 'Tarzan the Fearless' (1934), 'Bulldog Drummond Strikes' (1934), 'My Man Godfrey' (1936), 'Three Smart Girls' (1937), 'One Hundred Men and a Girl' (1937), 'You Can't Take It With You' (1938), 'Destry Rides Again' (1939), 'Hold That Ghost' (1941), 'Hellzapoppin' (1941), 'Brewster's Millions' (1945), 'And Then There Were None' (1945), 'Frou-Frou' (1955), 'Mr. Arkadin' (1955), 'What Ever Happened to Baby Toto?' (1964) and 'The Christmas That Almost Wasn't' (1966)
    Starred in the radio series 'Mischa the Magnificent' (1942)
    He was married four times, divorced three times.
    Before 'My Man Godfrey,' he was typecast as sinister foreigners; after, he was typecast in comedic 'mad Russian' roles.
    The 'movie highlights' section of his AllMovies page shows 'Casablanca' -- a film he did not appear in. (We suspect they confused him with the pickpocket played by Curt Bois.)
    His father was an officer in the Imperial Navy who died in the Russo-Japanese War when Mischa was an infant.
    During the Russian Revolution, he was separated from his mother and lived on the streets with other homeless youths.
    Shortly after he reunited with his mother, she died of typhus contracted from patients she nursed (1920).
    He knew six languages: Russian, English, Spanish, French, German and Italian.
