MINI BIO:

A surly-looking, Broadway-trained American actor, Howard Da Silva was a very useful off-centre villain whose career was stopped in its tracks by the McCarthy Blacklist. He was fired from the film, Slaughter Trail (1951), on which he was working, and spent 11 years in the wilderness. Unsurprisingly, his film career failed to recover, although he made sporadic returns to movies mainly in biting cameo roles, since 1962.
