STUDIO
CITY—Actor Elliott Reid, who famously starred in classic Hollywood films such as “Gentleman Prefer Blondes” passed away of heart failure at an assisted living facility on Friday, June 21. He was 93.

 

Reid was famous for starring in films that spanned multiple genres and media including film, television, radio, as well as stage. He was renowned for his performances beside Hollywood legends such as Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell in “Blondes” and Fred MacMurray in “The Absent- Minded Professor.” He was also recognized for his roles in “Son of Flubber” and “Inherit the Wind.”

 

He was born on January 16, 1920 in New York City. He was born as Edgeworth Blair Reid, but at age 15 he took the stage name Elliot after appearing on an Orson Welles radio program. He once made an impression of President John F. Kennedy at a 1962 Washington dinner that earned him an excellent reputation with the president as a gifted mimic.

 

He quickly became a beloved household name as he appeared in a variety of programs, and he also appeared in episodes of “Love Lucy” and “Murder, She Wrote.” He appeared in an episode of “Seinfeld” in 1992 as one of his last credited roles.
