Robert Benchley as an actor

It was not his main line of work, but Robert Benchley was wonderful as an actor. Although his scope probably was quite limited, he had a great flair for understated humor, even in serious films such as Hitchcock's Foreign Correspondent. He was great as Rosalind Russell's business partner in Take a Letter, Darling. And, of course, his little cameo inserts in Road To Utopia with Hope and Crosby are a classic.
