- Respected character actor of the silent and early sound period, specializing in cruel villains. The son of a Kansas City policeman, he and his younger brother Wallace Beery both left home in their teens, each seeking a career as a performer. Noah Beery made his stage debut at the age of sixteen and worked steadily in the theatre until his early thirties. Following his brother into films, he quickly established himself as a competent player and a familiar heavy in all sorts of films, particularly Westerns. He never achieved the great fame of his younger brother, but succeeded in carving a memorable niche for himself in the history of film. His son Noah Beery Jr. became equally familiar as a character actor, though usually in more genial roles.
