Slight, unobtrusive-looking British actor Eliot Makeham made his first film appearance in 1932. Makeham was most effectively cast as put-upon clerks or henpecked husbands. He played a handful of leads in the 1930s, then settled into supporting and featured roles. No matter the size of his part, he always made the most of what he was given; an excellent example was his performance as Schwab in Carol Reed's Night Train to Munich. Married three times, Eliot Makeham's third wife was another familiar British character player, Betty Shale.
