Mike Mazurki (1907-90) was a Ukrainian-born actor and professional wrestler who appeared in over 100 movies. Tall, stocky and muscular with a dough-like face that looked as if it had taken one too many punches and with a raspy, rugged voice to match, he was naturally cast as gangsters, thugs and henchmen, including a wrestler in NIGHT AND THE CITY, a boxer in THE HARDER THEY FALL, and a lovesick mug called Moose Malloy in MURDER, MY SWEET, all noir classics.
