Character actor, Lloyd Nolan, was born Lloyd Benedict Nolan on Aug 11, 1902 in San Francisco, CA. Nolan died at the age of 83 on Sep 27, 1985 in Los Angeles, CA and was laid to rest in Westwood Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, CA.
Skillful and likeable American actor of tough-guy parts, facially not unlike George Raft. Usually billed above the title but behind the stars, but quite capable of carrying a film on his own during his peak period (1935-1949), Nolan was also the star of a presentable little series of crime thrillers about detective Michael Shayne.
