George Delbert "Dell" Henderson (5 July 1883 – 2 December 1956) was a Canadian actor, director and writer in films from the early silent days.


Henderson was a frequent associate of film pioneer D.W. Griffith and, on a less prolific basis, Mack Sennett. After retiring from directing in 1927, Henderson turned to acting full-time, on several occasions as a comic foil for such comedians as The Three Stooges, W.C. Fields and Laurel and Hardy.

Modern audiences will remember Henderson as annoyed hospital president Dr. Graves in The Three Stooges film Men in Black and the put-upon chaperone in the Little Rascals film Choo-Choo!.

Henderson died of a heart attack on December 2, 1956.[1][2]
