Personal Quote:

The most difficult, the most delicate, the most interesting, and a very worthwhile job is that of making people laugh. See more »


Although Griffith had a long career as an actor, writer and producer, he is probably best known to modern audiences for his small but pivotal role in All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) as the French soldier who takes cover in the same shell crater as German soldier Lew Ayres, who stabs him with a bayonet and is then forced to spend the night watching him die.

At the height of his popularity, he usually played charming, elegant and somewhat unemotional characters who always wore a silk hat.
