That was over 85 years ago in 1935.
In 1997 he died aged 89, starring in 103 films in his career, 102 since The Scoundrel was released.
In The Scoundrel, I think Burgess Meredith looks:
The Scoundrel scores 6.8 out of 10 on The Movie Database.
Burgess Meredith's first acting role was as 'Flop House Bum' in The Scoundrel, released in 1935 when he was 27.
