A flying trapeze acrobat, Hank joined Mack Sennett in 1912 and soon became one of the original Keystone Kops. He later went to Fox and appeared in his own series of films. Due to poor management, Mann was near penniless by the late 1920s. He appeared in a number of films during the 30s and worked steadily in Frank Capra films. He worked as a makeup artist and also operated a malt shop. During the 1950s, he was a very reliable source for numerous newspaper interviews.
