Life and career

Cavanagh was born in Felling, Durham. He attended the Royal Grammar School, Newcastle upon Tyne, and Emmanuel College, Cambridge, where he was an undergraduate student. Cavanagh studied law in England, earning a master of arts degree at Cambridge.[3] A newspaper article published 17 June 1931, reported, "It is on record that Cavanagh won high honors in mathematics and history."[4]

Cavanagh practised "for several years" before he changed professions.[5] He went to Canada "for a year of sightseeing and wandering" before he joined and served nine months with the Royal North-West Mounted Police.[6][7]

After serving in World War I, he returned to Canada, where he practised law, including revising the statutes of Alberta,[8] but eventually went back to England to practise law. Cavanagh went onto the stage after a stroke of bad luck in 1924 caused him to lose his savings, and later he went into films.

In 1926, Cavanagh lost $22,000 in one evening on a roulette wheel in Monte Carlo. An observer offered to provide a letter "to some of my theatrical acquaintances" in London, England.[9] Those contacts led to Cavanagh's role in Walter Hackett's It Pays to Advertise.[9] He also appeared in Eden Phillpotts' Blue Comet in the West End.

After appearing in a handful of British silent films he moved to the United States. Cavanagh's first film contract and film came in 1929 with Paramount Pictures.[10]

Cavanagh died in London from a heart attack in 1964, aged 75.[citation needed]
