Francis Curray "FRANK" McHUGH (1898-1981) began his career in the entertainment field on vaudeville at age ten, appearing in an act with his brother, Matt, and his sister, Kitty. In 1930, five years after he debuted on Broadway in The Fall Guy (1925), McHugh signed with Warner Bros. He made over 90 films for the studio, playing second leads and important supporting roles. His film credits included The Front Page (1931), Stage Struck (1936), Dodge City (1939), Virginia City (1940), Going My Way (1944), Mighty Joe Young (1949), A Lion is in the Streets (1953), The Last Hurrah (1958) and Easy Come, Easy Go (1967). In 1951, three years before he signed this contract, McHugh made the first of a long list of television appearances. In addition to appearing on numerous early TV anthology series, McHugh made guest appearances on several series, including Route 66 and F Troop, and he appeared as Willis Walter on The Bing Crosby Show from 1964-1965. LEE TRACY (1898-1968) was nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in 1964 for The Best Man, his final film.
