BIOGRAPHY

Heavy-set character actor, mostly in horror films or westerns whose most famous role was as "The Wolf Man" in numerous films. Chaney also appeared out of monster makeup in support of Bob Hope in "My Favorite Brunette" (1947), and as the arthritic marshall in "High Noon" (1952), but his finest starring role was as the slow-witted Lennie in Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men" (1939).
