Biography

A former operatic tenor, diminutive (about five feet tall) Polish-born character comedian Marek Windheim usually portrayed excitable characters, such as headwaiters and hotel clerks, often sporting a fake French accent. Making his Hollywood debut as the ballet master in Shall We Dance? (1937), Windheim popped up in countless, usually unbilled bit parts until at least 1946.
