Chet Brandenburg

Born: 15 October 1897, Peoria, Illinois, USA
Died: 17 July 1974, Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, California, USA

Chet Brandenburg was a bit part player, stunt man and occasional second unit director in films for over forty years. He and his brother Ed Brandenburg appeared in silent films for Hal Roach studios and found themselves in Laurel and Hardy and Will Rogers pictures. You will be hard pushed to find a film where either Ed or Chet spoke any dialogue.
