Biography

Springfield, Massachusetts, USA
Born on May 21, 1899 in Springfield, Massachusetts, veteran character actor Ralph Sanford came from a theatrical family. His parents were in the business, although not as actors.

An actor and stage manager on the Broadway stage in the early years of his career, Sanford appeared in such productions as "Half a Widow" (1927), "The Constant Sinner" (1931) and "Between Two Worlds" (1934). He began his screen work in 1937 at Vitaphone Pictures working in shorts, as a burly foil to such established two-reeler comics as Shemp Howard, Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle and Fritz Feld. Read more...
