Burton Gilliam achieved fame long before his film career, setting the record for most wins as a Golden Gloves boxer. Gilliam worked as a fireman in Dallas before turning to acting in the early 1970s. His toothy grin, braying voice and village-buffoon demeanor was effectively harnessed for such roles as the night clerk who "compromises" buxom bimbo Trixie Delight (Madeline Kahn) in Paper Moon (1974), the chain-gang boss in Blazing Saddles (1975) and the leader of the "Flying Elvises" in Honeymoon in Vegas (1992). On TV, Burton Gilliam was seen as Virgie on Evening Shade (1992) and as one of the "This stuff's made in New York City!" kvetchers on the popular Pace's Picante Sauce commercials.
