Gaunt, hollow-eyed character actor Wilbur Mack spent his first thirty years in show business as a vaudeville headliner. With his first wife Constance Purdy he formed the team of Mack and Purdy, and with second wife Nella Walker he trod the boards as Mack and Walker. In films from 1925 to 1964, he essayed innumerable bits and extra roles, usually playing doormen or cops. Mack also appeared in a number of "Bowery Boys" comedies. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
