Harry Woods
Harry Woods (5 May 1889 – 28 December 1968) was an American film actor, born in Cleveland, Ohio. He appeared in nearly 250 films between 1923 and 1958. During his 35-year film career he acquired a reputation as a screen villain par excellence; his imposing size, powerful build, piercing eyes and snarling voice typed him as a bad guy to be reckoned with. He seldom played ordinary henchmen, usually cast as both the brains (the banker or saloon owner who secretly runs the bandit gang terrorizing the area) and the brawn behind the local villainy.
Well respected by his peers—another prime screen villain, Roy Barcroft, once said of him, "Everything I know about being a bad guy I learned from Harry Woods". He enjoyed a long career in films before retiring in 1958, and he passed away in Los Angeles ten years later.
Known for Monkey Business (1931) starring the Marx Brothers, Haunted Gold (1932) with John Wayne, The Phantom Rider (1935) starring Buck Jones, Days of Jesse James (1939) starring Roy Rogers, etc, etc.
