American actor. According to his bio in the 1929 Motion Picture Almanac, spent seven months working for Hal Roach, followed by three months working for Al Christie. Under his real name of Albert B. Rutt, he was also a minister and worked in real estate.
In early 1916, Rev. Rutt, then "bishop of Mennonite church and pastor of Mennonite Home Chapel, 6201 S. Carpenter, [was] arrested on [a] disorderly charge. Police say he was intoxicated." Three years later, Rev. Rutt "was sentenced to thirty days in jail . . . on a shoplifting charge and Rutt admitted it." In 1937, among a string of "sex offense complaints" in Chicago, 22-year old elevator operator Clifton J. Ryding accused Rev. Rutt, then acting pastor of a Chicago church, of molestation and "disorderly conduct." Another article stated that Rev. Rutt "annoyed [Ryding] on a street corner" and mentioned the 1919 shoplifting conviction. According to another, Rev. Rutt "said he was to have been installed today as the regular pastor of the church, [and] denied the accusation . . ."
