Andy Devine

Andy Devine (born Jeremiah Schwartz) (October 7, 1905 - February 18, 1977) was a rotund, raspy-voiced character actor and comic cowboy sidekick. His movie career started in silent films and extended until his death.

Devine was born in Flagstaff, Arizona. He grew up in Kingman, Arizona, where his family moved when he was a year old. He appeared in more than 400 films and shared with Walter Brennan the rare ability to move with ease from B Westerns to A pictures.

He was a star football player at Santa Clara University, which led to his first film role in the silent The Collegians.

Although it was at first thought that his peculiar voice would prevent him from moving to the talkies, it became his trademark and strongest selling point. Devine's speech was the result of a childhood accident. He had been running with a stake in his mouth and fell, the instrument piercing the roof of his mouth.

His notable roles included ten films as sidekick, "Cookie", to Roy Rogers, a Shakespeare performance in Romeo and Juliet in 1937, Stagecoach with John Wayne in 1939 and a reunion with Wayne in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance in 1959. He played "The Cheerful Soldier" in The Red Badge of Courage.

Devine is well-remembered for his role as "Jingles" in the US radio and TV series Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (1951). He also had a part as "Hap" on Flipper and hosted a children's TV show, Andy's Gang, and performed voice parts in animated films, including "Friar Tuck" in Disney's Robin Hood. He starred in a Twilight Zone episode as "Frisby", a talkative braggart faced with an alien invasion called "Hocus-Pocus and Frisby". He also appeared in the Over-the-Hill Gang and as "Coyote Bill" in Myra Breckenridge.

He died of leukemia in 1977.
