Jerome Cowan (1897-72) appeared in over 100 films but is probably best remembered for playing Miles Archer, the doomed private eye partner of Bogart's Sam Spade in THE MALTESE FALCON, and the hapless district attorney, Thomas Mara, forced to cross-examine his own son about the existence of Santa Claus, in MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET. He also appeared in noirs DEADLINE AT DAWN and HIGH SIERRA.

I remember he replaced Jonathan Hale, in the Dagwood Bumstead films, and was also underated.
