Emory Parnell Overview:

Character actor, Emory Parnell, was born on Dec 29, 1892 in St. Paul, MN. Parnell died at the age of 86 on Jun 22, 1979 in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles and was cremated and his ashes given to family or friend.


Emory Parnell was a rotund American character actor with receding brown hair and a neck that stretched from the point of his jaw to his chest.  He was just as likely to turn up in a lunatic comedy part or as a prison warden. He also played a large number of policemen, frequently baffled by the hero or the case. A former vaudevillian, he made scores of Hollywood films before venturing into television in the 1950s, becoming familiar to viewers as the bartender in the long-funning western series "Lawman". He died from a heart attack.
