Did You Know?
[on Universal Pictures studio heads Leo Spitz and William Goetz
] Mr. Spitz was a nice man, but he wouldn't talk to either Bud [Bud Abbott
] or Lou [Lou Costello
]. I think he was scared of them. Mr. Goetz was a very fine independent producer. But you had two people in charge of the studio who didn't know anything about comedy at all.
Two films he can be seen in are Beau Geste
(1926) (He plays a Foreign Legionnaire) and Wings
(1927) (He plays the soldier "injured" by Clara Bow's ambulance).
