Actor, Olympic Athlete. An Olympic wrestler, he won a silver medal in wrestling at the 1920 Olympics in Belgium and was a two-time Eastern Intercollegiate Wresting Association champion (1914 to 1915) while at Columbia University. After his Olympic career he turned to professional wrestling, which eventually led him to Hollywood. His physical prowess led to him being cast as the strongman "Sandow" in "The Great Ziegfeld" with William Powell, with whom he would work again in several of the "Thin Man" movies as Detective John Guild. He also wrote a movie for himself, 1933's "Deception," in which he played a wrestler.
