Acteur né le 05 mai 1889 (décédé à 79 ans)
Harry Woods 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 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 died in Los Angeles ten years later from uremia.
