Theodore Lorch (September 29, 1873 – November 12, 1947) was an American film actor.[1] He appeared in more than 140 films between 1908 and 1947.


Born in Springfield, Illinois, in 1873, Lorch appeared in several Three Stooges comedies. He was the suspicious Major "Bloodhound" Filbert in Uncivil Warriors, the snooty psychologist Professor Sedlitz in Half-Wits Holiday, and General Muster in Goofs and Saddles. He also performed tiny bit roles, such as the butler in If a Body Meets a Body and Micro-Phonies.

Lorch died on November 12, 1947. His final Stooge film, The Hot Scots, was released posthumously in 1948. He was interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale, California. [2]
