Short, stockily built, round-faced, wary-looking American-born actor, popular in early British films as tough-talking gangsters and sharpsters, even getting a leading role or two. He went to Hollywood in 1936 and stayed, although, after a good start as Humphrey Bogart's henchman in Kid Galahad, he declined to fairly minor mobster roles, often of the dim variety.
