Yes yes. There was a Billy Wilder series here recently, and he was in Avanti! He played, like most character actors, basically the same part as always. And as usual, he did the job perfectly.

He was the self-important bank president, Senator, stuffed-shirt father of the gal who's trying to break loose and marry the guy with the motorcycle. There were a legion of guys and women like him who added spice to a movie. Made a flick that might have just laid there fun.

I always wondered if he was as much fun off-screen as he was on.

I adore Edward Andrews! He was one of the greatest!

Who else but...

Louis Calhern as Buffalo Bill Cody?
Carroll O'Connor as Archie Bunker?
Edward Andrews as George Babbitt?

That Trident gum commercial he did from back in the 60's; "Sugar! I Don't Have Time To Watch Sugar!!!"

Classic!

I saw him iceskating at Rockefeller Center. I will never forget how excited I was. He was born to be Babbitt, that scene in Elmer Gantry thrilled me so much because he brought him to life for me.
