Actor. Born Howard H. Jenkins in Norristown, Pennsylvania he served in the US Army during the Spanish-American War. A "Gabby Hayes" type character, he came up from the circus and vaudeville ranks and provided a comedy role as toothless old codger in numerous western movies. He broke into films in 1931 and was often teamed with actor Walter Brennan. He is probably best remembered for his brief appearances in the films "Topper" (1937), "A Day at the Races" (1937), "Drums Along the Mohawk" (1939), "Stagecoach" (1939), and "Zorro's Black Whip" (1944). His last film appearance was in "Oklahoma Annie" (1952) after which he retired from acting and died of heart disease in Woodland Hills, California at the age of 93.
