BIOGRAPHY

Prolific character player of the 1930s and 40s, later on TV, typically in cranky but endearing comedy roles. Appeared in all of Preston Sturges' Paramount films of the 1940s, most memorably as Officer Kockenlocker in "The Miracle of Morgan's Creek" and as the tough Marine sergeant in "Hail the Conquering Hero" (both 1944). Well known as Uncle Charley on the long-running TV series "My Three Sons."
