MINI BIO:

Jolly, roly-poly American actor with unruly light brown hair and unique, croakingly raucous, high-pitched voice - the comic sidekick of many a western. He got into films through being a college football star, liked it, overcame objections to the effectiveness of his voice in sound films, and stayed to cheer up more than 150 of them. Death caused by cardiac arrest.
