Allen Jenkins' big break occurred when he replaced Spencer Tracy for three weeks in the Broadway play The Last Mile. He went to Hollywood and signed first to Paramount and shorty after to Warner Bros. With the advent of talking pictures, he made a career of playing henchmen, stooges, policemen and other tough guys in numerous films in the 30s and 40s. Jenkins also worked in TV in the 50s, including such series as I Love Lucy. In the 1960s he could be heard as the voice of Officer Dibble on the Hanna-Barbera TV cartoon Top Cat. Eleven days before his death he made his final film appearance in The Front Page in 1974. He was the seventh member of the Screen Actors Guild.
