A veteran actor from England who usually played Cockney characters, Cyril Delevanti made his American screen debut in 1931 but was at his busiest in the 1940s. Turning up as cab drivers, news vendors, bookkeepers, and the like, Delevanti enjoyed some of his best moments in action serials: Mah Ling in Adventures of Smilin' Jack (1943), Hubert, the commissioner's aide, in Jungle Queen (1945) -- brief but choice assignments that probably came his way as the father-in-law of ace serial director Ford I. Beebe. Delevanti was equally busy on television in the 1950s and 1960s.
