Walter Long Overview:

Character actor, Walter Long, was born Walter Huntley Long on Mar 5, 1879 in Nashua, NH. Long died at the age of 73 on Jul 4, 1952 in Los Angeles, CA .


American tough-guy actor, who took over from the equally fearsome Noah Young whenever Laurel and Hardy needed an awesome opponent to threaten them with dire physical improbabilities. After blacking up for his first major film, The Birth of a Nation, Long was almost always a villain, most notably as Stan Laurel's (cheating) opponent in Any Old Port. More or less retired after 1942: died from a heart attack.
