Actor. Born David Magee in Philadelphia, he had a long but unremarkable stage career until 1930, when he played a murderous cuckold in the road show production of Elmer Rice's "Street Scene". He powerfully recreated the role in director King Vidor's 1931 film adaptation. Armed with a menacing look and a cavernous bass speaking voice, Landau became a much sought-after screen heavy and from 1931 to 1934 he appeared in 33 films, including "Horse Feathers" (1932), "I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang" (1932), "Taxi!" (1932), "She Done Him Wrong" (1933), "Gabriel Over the White House" (1933), and "Judge Priest" (1934). In 1934 he suffered a stroke from which he never recovered.
