A distinguished stage actor from Ireland, gray-haired Brandon Tynan appeared in the odd film during the silent era -- including the starring role in Success (1923), a drama about a famous Shakespearean actor who succumbs to alcoholism -- but was rather more visible onstage until 1937, when he relocated to Hollywood. As a Hollywood character actor, Tynan played John Redmond in the controversial Parnell (1937) (and, that same year, was Captain Cobb in the equally maligned Sh The Octopus), the mayor in The Girl and the Mob (1939), James Ellison's lawyer in a RKO "B" Almost a Gentleman and, also for RKO, one of the Bohemians in Lucky Partners (1940). Tynan was the husband of American stage (and later television) actress Lily Cahill (1886-1955).
