Elliott Reid, the character actor who starred in classic Hollywood films like "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," died Friday of heart failure at an assisted living facility in Studio City, California. He was 93.

Other notable roles included turns in "Inherit the Wind" and "Son of Flubber."

Born Edgeworth Blair Reid on Jan. 16, 1920 in New York City, he eventually took the stage name Elliott, and at age 15 got his big break appearing on an Orson Welles radio program, which led to further collaborations between the two on the airwaves and on the stage. Known for being a gifted mimic, Reid did a famous impression of President John F. Kennedy at a 1962 Washington dinner that left the president in stitches.
