From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

William Gilbert Baron or Billy Gilbert (September 12, 1894 - September 23, 1971) was an American comedian and actor most known for his odd and unusual sneeze routines.

Born William Gilbert Barron in Louisville, Kentucky, he began working in vaudeville at the age of twelve and was thirty-five years old before he appeared in his first film for the Fox Film Corporation in 1929.

Gilbert is most recognizable as a perrenial nemesis of Laurel and Hardy in many of their 1930s short subjects, including the 1932 Academy Award winner The Music Box. Gilbert also appeared in a number of Our Gang shorts, and contributed his sneezing routine to Walt Disney Productions as the voice of Sneezy the Dwarf in 1937's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

For his contribution to the motion picture industry, Billy Gilbert has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6263 Hollywood Blvd.

Billy Gilbert died in 1971 in Hollywood and was interred in the Odd Fellows Cemetery in Los Angeles.
