Biography

New York City, New York, USA
Robert Emmett Keane was one of Hollywood's more overworked character players to be found near the bottom of the credit list. An ex-vaudevillian, he appeared on Broadway from as early as 1914 and at the London Hippodrome two years later, invariably specialising in musicals and comedies. Keane did not enter films until 1929, but thereafter amassed an impressive record of almost 200 screen appearances, often for the smaller studios like RKO, Columbia and Monogram. Read more...
