An actor/playwright, Leary played on the stage as far back as 1911, later appearing in over 150 movies, mainly in bit parts. He may best be remembered as the deaf-mute father of Lon Chaney (James Cagney) in the 1958 film “Man of 1000 Faces.” Occasionally, he would show up as Ted Baxter’s father on the hit television series, “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.”  (bio by: TLS)
