Ned Sparks belongs to that legion of actors without whom most films could not be made. He was tremendously popular, a solid performer, reliable, liked by studio heads, directors and his fellow actors, yet always just shy of true star status. He fell into that large catch-all category generally called character actor. A category that exists not just to fill a stage, or sound stage, but also to ensure the stars can really shine because of the high quality of the talent around them.
