J.M. Kerrigan (1884–1964)

Elfin character player who, sometimes ornery, sometimes self-righteous and usually puffin' away on his pipe, would likely elude the mischief he made for others! (Rather like his countryman Barry Fitzgerald, with a bit more shiftiness - a bit more of a mean streak perhaps.) See full bio »
