  • Billy Bevan (29. září 1887 – 26. listopad 1957), vlastním jménem William Bevan Harris, byl původem australský komik zlaté éry americké filmové grotesky. Postava, kterou ve filmu ztvárňoval a která jej ve 20. letech 20. století proslavila po celém světě, se vyznačovala malým vzrůstem, výraznou gestikulací a obličejem, jemuž dominoval svislý mroží knír.
  • Billy Bevan (born William Bevan Harris, 29 September 1887 – 26 November 1957) was an Australian film actor. He appeared in 254 American films between 1916 and 1950.Bevan was born in the country town of Orange, New South Wales, Australia. He went on the stage at an early age, travelled to Sydney and spent eight years in Australian light opera. He sailed to America with the Pollard Opera Company in 1912 and later toured Canada. Bevan broke into films with the Sigmund Lubin studio in 1916. When the company disbanded, Bevan became a supporting actor in Mack Sennett movie comedies. An expressive pantomimist, Bevan's quiet scene-stealing attracted attention, and by 1922 Bevan was a Sennett star. He supplemented his income, however, by establishing a citrus and avocado farm at Escondido, California.Usually filmed wearing a derby hat and a drooping mustache, Bevan may not have possessed an indelible screen character like Charlie Chaplin but he had a friendly, funny presence in the frantic Sennett comedies. Much of the comedy depended on Bevan's skilled timing and reactions; the famous "oyster" routine performed on film by Curly Howard, Lou Costello, and Huntz Hall—in which a bowl of "fresh oyster stew" shows alarming signs of life and battles the guy trying to eat it—was originated on film decades earlier by Bevan in the short film Wandering Willies.By the mid-1920s Bevan was often teamed with Andy Clyde; Clyde soon graduated to his own starring series. The late 1920s found Bevan playing in wild marital farces for Sennett.Talking pictures took their toll on the careers of many silent stars, including Billy Bevan. His Australian accent came across as British, but was sufficiently neutral that he could play nondescript character parts (like a hotel employee in the Mae Murray talkie Peacock Alley). His starring series came to an end, however, and Bevan began a second career as a character actor and bit player. For the next 20 years he often played rowdy Cockneys (as in Pack Up Your Troubles with The Ritz Brothers), and affable Englishmen (as in Tin Pan Alley and Terror by Night).Bevan died in 1957 in Escondido, California, just before new audiences discovered him in Robert Youngson's silent-comedy compilations. (The Youngson films mispronounce his name as "Be-VAN"; Bevan himself offered the proper pronunciation in a Voice of Hollywood reel in 1930.)
