Jerome Cowan (born October 6, 1897 in New York, New York; died January 24, 1972 in Encino, California) appeared in over 100 films but is probably best remembered for two roles in classic films: He played Miles Archer, the doomed private eye partner of Sam Spade, in The Maltese Falcon; he was also the hapless district attorney, Thomas Mara, who is forced to cross-examine his own son about the existence of Santa Claus, in Miracle on 34th Street. The New York-born actor also played Dagwood Bumstead's boss Mr. Radcliffe in several installments of Columbia Pictures' Blondie series. He also appeared in Deadline at Dawn, June Bride, and High Sierra.
