D'Arcy Corrigan (2 January 1870 – 25 December 1945) was an Irish-born lawyer who became a character actor.

Life and career[edit]

D'Arcy Corrigan was born in County Cork, Ireland, playing over 50 film roles from 1925 to 1945. His early career included a stint as private secretary for a member of Parliament and as a stock company leading man. Corrigan had a distinguished appearance with his wrinkled, gaunt face. His roles typically were very brief but impressive, like as his ominously silent, darkly shrouded Spirit of Christmas Future in the popular 1938 MGM film A Christmas Carol. Corrigan was also memorable as the odd morgue-keeper in Bela Lugosi's Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932) and as a blind man in The Informer (1935) by John Ford.

Corrigans roles were especially in his late career mostly uncredited, like the thoughtful Professor LaTouche in the first scene of Bringing Up Baby. He retired from acting widely in 1940 and died on Christmas Day in 1945, in Los Angeles, California.
