Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

Best remembered for playing the coroner in Bride of Frankenstein, 1930s bit player Edwin Mordant had been a Broadway performer of some fame in the early years of the 20th century, appearing in such plays as Sherlock Holmes (1915) with William Gillette and the hugely successful Business Before Pleasure (1917), while moonlighting in New York-lensed screen melodrama for Famous Players. He became a Hollywood bit player late in life, a career that lasted until 1938 and included such potboilers as the Bela Lugosi serial S.O.S. Coast Guard (1937) and Grand National's Shadows Over Shanghai (1938), in both of which the veteran character actor played medical doctors.
