William Haade Overview:

Character actor, William Haade, was born on Mar 2, 1903 in New York City, NY. Haade died at the age of 63 on Nov 15, 1966 in Los Angeles, CA .


Visually a cross between Harry Carey and Bruce Cabot, William Haade made his film debut as the boxing champion managed by Humphrey Bogart in "Kid Galahad". After getting himself knocked out by Wayne Morris in the climatic bout, Haade spent the next 20 years being slugged by other movie heroes, mostly in minor westerns, before quitting films for television.
