Character actor, Thomas Gomez, was born Sabino Tomas Gomez on Jul 10, 1905 in New York City, NY. Gomez died at the age of 65 on Jun 18, 1971 in Santa Monica, CA .
Although well into his thirties before he tried films, scowling American actor, Thomas Gomez, whose greasy black hair fitted his oily characters, was soon a staple part of villainy in numerous 1940s Hollywood thrillers. The 1950s only proved that he was less effective when used as comic relief, and he faded from the scene. He received an Academy Award nomination for "Ride the Pink Horse".(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
