Hank Mann

Biography

Hank Mann (May 28, 1887(1887-05-28) - November 25, 1971 (aged 84) was a comedian and silent screen star who is best known as the last surviving member of the Keystone Cops. He was born in Russia, emigrated to New York City with his parents and siblings as a baby, and died in South Pasadena, California. He was one of the earliest of film comedians, working first for Mack Sennett as an original Keystone Cop, and later for William Fox, in silent film comedies. With the advent of motion picture sound and the "talkies", he became a popular bit player and background extra in many quintessential motion picture dramas as well as comedies, including "The Maltese Falcon" (one of a group of reporters) and "Mr Smith Goes to Washington" (as a photographer). One of his most famous bits was as the "glass door man" in the Three Stooges' short "Men in Black". Later in his career he continued to play bit parts in TV comedies, and made some appearances in several Jerry Lewis film comedies in the 1960's. Although he never really retired completely from the film industry, his later years were spent as an apartment building manager with his wife, Dolly, in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles.
