Rex Ingram (October 20, 1895 – September 19, 1969) was an American stage, film, and television actor.


Rex Ingram débute au cinéma en 1918, passe sans problème du muet au parlant, et continue sa carrière (à ses débuts, sans être crédité) jusqu'à un dernier film en 1968. Il interprète deux de ses rôles les plus connus dans Les Aventures d'Huckleberry Finn (1939), avec Mickey Rooney, et Le Voleur de Bagdad (1940), avec Conrad Veidt.

De 1953 à 1969 (année de sa mort), il participe pour la télévision à plusieurs séries, dont deux épisodes (1967-1968) de Daktari.

Il se produit également au théâtre, à Broadway, entre 1934 et 1961, dans des pièces et comédies musicales. Parmi ces dernières, citons Un petit coin aux cieux (musique de Vernon Duke) en 1940-1941, aux côtés d'Ethel Waters — qu'il retrouvera dans l'adaptation au cinéma (même titre) de 1943 —.

Widower Ty Ty Walden (Robert Ryan) and his two daughters live in the backwoods of Georgia during the Great Depression (although the film appears to be set in the 1950s, since many of the cars are 1950s vintage).

Ty Ty has been digging for gold on his land for 15 years. Pluto Swint (Buddy Hackett) arrives to announce he's running for sheriff. Swint is invited to come around back where Darlin' Jill (Fay Spain) is taking a bath in an outdoor bathtub positioned near a handpump and spigot. She asks him to pump some more water (the camera never dips lower than the top of the tub). He is asked to keep his eyes closed, but takes a pleasurable peek.
