    Hosted the TV game show 'Celebrity Time' (1949-52)
    President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (1932-33)
    One critic claimed that, despite his long and prolific career, 'He did not appear in even one production in which he leaves a memorable impression.'
    He was married and divorced three times.
    If Joan Fontaine's description of their brief fling ('It reminded me of the time when I had to stand up in class as a child and be vaccinated') was at all typical, then he can be disqualified as one of Hollywood's great lovers.
    He was so into table tennis that he had an extra-large paddle imported from Germany.
    His movie career went into a tailspin when he incurred the wrath of Louis B. Mayer by quitting AMPAS and becoming a founder of the Screen Actors Guild.
    He served in the US Navy during World War I.
    He made a smooth transition from silents to talkies and was even asked by MGM to assess their contract players concerning the suitability of their voices for sound pictures.
    He said, 'I was never a big star, so I never had a role like Moses or D'Artagnan. But being assigned to 31 pictures in 24 months, I had an opportunity to play every type of part.'
    He received an honorary Academy Award for his work with the Motion Picture Relief Fund (1940).
    He has three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, for movies, TV and radio.
