MINI BIO:

Michael J. Pollard was a diminutive American actor with a cherubic face and a demonic smile. An Actor's Studio graduate, he shot to fame as Bonnie and Clyde's accomplice in 1967 (for which he was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar). He briefly became a leading actor, but proved difficult to cast and his films were not too successful. In his later career, he returned to character roles.
