German-Jewish leading comedian and character actor of stage and screen under the name of Siegfried Arno before the Nazi era. He acted in ninety films in Germany, including G.W. Pabst's Pandora's Box with Louise Brooks, before he left Germany in 1933, touring the Continent until 1939 before reaching the USA.

During the next twenty years in Hollywood he appeared in over fifty movies, often playing waiters, maitre d's and "funny Europeans". Arno appeared in such films as Pardon My Sarong and The Mummy's Hand. He may be best remembered from The Palm Beach Story (1942) as Toto, the nonsense-talking mustachioed man who hopelessly pursues Mary Astor's "Princess Centimillia".

He also did well in New York with several memorable Broadway productions, including Time Remembered and Song of Norway.

Sig Arno died of Parkinson's Disease on 17 August 1975, aged 79, in Woodland Hills, California.
