Ralph Lynn (1882-1962) b. Manchester, England.

Ralph Lynn

Born in Manchester, dark-haired comedian Ralph Lynn (pronounced "Rafe") made a stage career out of playing the monocled silly ass. He was a veteran performer of the popular London Aldwych Theatre farces; they were mostly produced by Tom Walls and Ralph Lynn and written by Ben Travers between 1925 and 1933. He and fellow performers Tom Walls and Robertson Hare successfully took many of their very English productions to film during the 1930s. His last film was For Valour (1937).
