Actor. He is remembered by his trademark handlebar mustache, that drooped well below his chin. A veteran of silent and sound B-Western films, his career spanned three decades from 1920 to 1950, appearing in over 370 films, most of them uncredited, with actors like John Wayne, Gabby Hayes, Paul Fix, and Noah Beery. He performed roles as a stagecoach driver, stage guard, lawman, prospector, bartender, townsman, posse rider, and many others, including sidekick duties. His grade A films include "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town" (1936, with Gary Cooper) and "The Egg and I" (1947, with Fred MacMurray and Claudette Colbert). He continued to perform in films up to his death from a heart attack at the age of 58. (bio by: William Bjornstad)
