Emmett Lynn (1897–1958)

Lynn was one of the old grubby prospector sidekicks who supplied the comic relief in a number of Republic Westerns through the forties and early fifties. He also appeared with the Three Stooges in 'The Yokes on Me (1944)'. His last two films were of a religious nature with 'A Man Called Peter (1955)' and 'The Ten Commandments (1956)'. See full bio »
