On-stage from the late 19th century, comic actor Hugh Cameron became one of Broadway's most popular musical comedy stars, appearing in such popular shows as Paris by Night (1904), Lew Fields' Hanky Panky (1912), the 1921, 1922, and 1923 editions of The Music Box Revue, and all the way to the 1936 revival of the Ziegfeld Follies and Cole Porter's perhaps biggest hit Du Barry Was a Lady (1939-1940)....
