A former semipro baseball player, Brown appeared in several baseball films, including Elmer the Great (1933) and Alibi Ike (1935). During World War II, he toured tirelessly to entertain the troops. He made his last film, The Comedy of Terrors, in 1964. Lightly toned, silvered and bowed, otherwise in fine condition.
