BIOGRAPHY

Veteran character actor, often in villainous roles, who started his career in radio on such programs as "First Nighter," "Lux Radio Theater" and "The Mercury Theater." Spotted by director William Wellman while acting on Broadway in "Joan of Lorraine," Kroeger soon thereafter played a supporting role in Wellman's film "The Iron Curtain" (1948). Over the next three decades he performed in several dozen films as well as on stage and TV. Kroeger's flair for decadent leering and evil scowls often led to his being cast in schlock fare like "Chamber of Horrors" (1966) and "The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant" (1971). He is probably best remembered for his role as the sleazy Packett in Joseph H. Lewis' cult crime classic, "Gun Crazy" (1949).
