Child: John Huntley Long
Despite his mean, tough-guy appearance on film, he was reported to be one of the warmest, nicest people in the business.
Died of a heart attack while watching the fireworks display at the Coliseum in Los Angeles, during the Fourth of July celebration.
Served as Captain of the Military Police during World War II in Washington DC and Virginia.
Shaven-headed tough guy actor who appeared in many D.W. Griffith films (once notoriously as a Negro villain in The Birth of a Nation (1915), in blackface make-up),but is perhaps now best remembered as a scowling comic villain in several Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy films.
