Biography

South Norwalk, Connecticut, USA
Born in 1906, Connecticut-born character actor Horace McMahon fell easily into his career while pursuing a law career at Fordham University. A former news reporter, his dark, streetwise mug and attitude proved perfect for playing assorted New York characters -- thugs, cabbies, henchmen, bouncers -- in a slew of late 30s and 40s crime yarns, often with a Runyonesque feel to them. On Broadway from 1931, McMahon scored his best stage role in 1949 with "Detective Story" and was able to solidify it on film in 1951 to critical acclaim. Read more...
