He remained with Sennett until 1917, when he settled into his prolific career of playing mostly aristocratic characters. Modern audiences are perhaps most familiar with his role of Marcelo Desnoyers, the well-intentioned but impractical French upper class father in Rex Ingram's 1921 film The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. His career in sound films was somewhat limited and he played in low-budget and action serial type films. He played the villainous Prime Minister Kruel in the 1925 film version of The Wizard of Oz.

Ralph Taeger (July 30, 1936 – March 11, 2015) was an American actor who starred in three short-lived television series during the 1960s. Biography Ralph Taeger was born in Richmond Hill, Queens to German-speaking parents. Taeger's first career choice was professional baseball, and he did play briefly on a farm team for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Knee injuries prompted him to switch his focus from athletics to acting, though he referred to baseball as his "first love." A high school teacher had suggested Taeger try public speaking and acting. In the late 1950s he enrolled at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City and also worked as a model. Within six months, however, he landed a major role in a production at the Beverly Hills Playhouse. An official at MGM was so impressed by Taeger's performance that the studio signed him to a contract.

Eugene Weingand (1 April 1934 – 30 November 1986) was an American actor, known as Peter Lorie Jr. Biography Weingand was born in Karlsruhe, Germany as Eugen Weingand and immigrated to the US at age of 20. Because of his resemblance to Peter Lorre he began calling himself Peter Lorie Jr. (sic). In 1963 he applied to have his name legally changed to Peter Lorie Jr., but Peter Lorre objected, as did American International Pictures, which had Lorre under contract. After a hearing in which the judge denied Weingand's petition, by deciding he was merely trying to cash in on the name, Weingand was barred from using the name Peter Lorie Jr. without Lorre's permission. After Lorre's death a few months later, Weingand began calling himself Peter Lorre Jr and claimed to be the son of the actor. Under this name, he made a handful of film and TV appearances in the 1960s and 70s.[1] including The Cat Creature, scripted by Robert Bloch.
