Character actor, Warren Hymer, was born on Feb 25, 1906 in New York City, NY. Hymer died at the age of 42 on Mar 25, 1948 in Los Angeles, CA .
Warren Hymer kept very busy in Hollywood from 1929 to 1942, his close-set eyes and fast delivery of a line lending themselves ideally to dim-witted but generally good-natured characters on either side of the law. The demand for "big palookas", however, decreased in post-war years and ill-health also impacted his career. He died in the hospital after a long illness at only 42. He was the son of the playwright John B. Hymer ("Aloma of the South Seas," "Law of the Underworld," "His Lucky Day").(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
