Character actor, Jay C. Flippen, was born on Mar 6, 1899 in Little Rock, AR. Flippen died at the age of 71 on Feb 3, 1971 in Los Angeles, CA .
Jay C. Flippen was a bulldog-faced, craggy, thick-set American actor with thick, grey curly hair and beetle brows that expressed doubt or incredulity. For years he was a minstrel and comic in traveling shows and he also made a couple of early two-reel comedy films. He returned to films in 1947 as a character actor to play hard eggs who could be comic or genuinely tough (1947, Brute Force; 1951, The Lemon Drop Kid; 1956, Kismet). He was much in demand until the end of the fifties. Unfortunately Flippen lost a leg in later years and, eventually died from an aneurysm in 1971.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
