Vernon Bruce Dent (February 16, 1895 - November 5, 1963) was a comic actor who co-starred in many short films for Columbia Pictures. He was frequently cast as the irascible foil to the Three Stooges' comic antics. By the time Dent retired from film in 1954, he had appeared in over 400 films. In the early 1920s Dent was a fixture at the Mack Sennett studio, working with comedians Billy Bevan, Andy Clyde, and especially Harry Langdon. Dent alternately played breezy pals and blustery authority figures opposite Langdon's timid character. Dent joined Columbia Pictures' short-subject department in 1935, and achieved his greatest success there. and went on to work with practically every star on the payroll. He suffered from diabetes later in life, and eventually went blind. Dent's diabetes worsened after his retirement, limiting his activities. He died of a heart attack on November 5, 1963.
