THE INFORMER is by far one of his best performances.

I also like him in:


THE QUIET MAN(1952)-Excellent as the loutish "Red" Danaher

SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON (1949)-Delightful as Top Sergent Quincannon

THE PRINCESS AND THE PIRATE (1944) -A wonderful parody performance as "The Hook"

HANGMAN'S HOUSE(1928)-Excellent as the vengeful Citizen Hogan

WHAT PRICE GLORY (1926)-He _IS_ Captain Flagg!


I would love to have seen what his performance in MOTHER MACHREE (1928), was like, sadly, only the first 30 minutes (or so) survive and he is just barely in it at that point.
