Actor. He appeared in several Three Stooges shorts, often playing a henchman or cop. He was a World War II veteran.
He signed with Columbia Pictures' rollicking short subjects department in the mid-'30s and returned to the unit after serving in World War II. Sadly, he had caught "jungle rot," a skin disease, at Guadalcanal, and later developed cancer. Despite his illness, he continued to appear opposite The Three Stooges (memorably in Fright Night (1947)) until his death in 1948.
He was a World War II veteran and is buried at Los Angeles National Cemetery, Los Angeles, CA. He worked while he was suffering from terminal cancer to make sure his family could survive after his death. He spent the bulk of his screen career menacing The Three Stooges. He appeared in 35 film shorts with The Three Stooges.
