David Landau (I) (1879–1935)

Very busy Hollywood character actor who didn't hit his stride on screen until he was in his 50s but who nonetheless appeared in 33 films between 1931 and 1934. Many of his performances were somewhat wooden, although that suited the characters he portrayed. Landau was best known for his deep, sonorous speaking voice. See full bio »
