'Snub' Pollard

Born: 9 November 1889, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Died: 19 January 1962, Burbank, California, USA
Harry 'Snub' Pollard was a former vaudevillian. When he entered films in 1911 he became a featured player very quickly with his visual slapstick and expressions. He went on to work with the top acts of the day including Charley Chase, Harold Lloyd (in the Lonesome Luke series of shorts), Andy Clyde, Bebe Daniels and later Laurel and Hardy. He also starred in his own series of silent comedy shorts. In sound films his starring roles faded and he earnt his living in bit parts and walk-ons.
Brother of Daphne Pollard.
