  • American actor Chick Chandler was an army brat, the son of a much-travelled military surgeon. Chandler was groomed for a career in uniform, but he dropped out of military school and headed for Hollywood. He worked as a prop man and gopher before making his first film appearance in 1925's Red Love. Polishing his craft in vaudeville and legitimate theatre, Chandler was much in demand once the movies began to talk in 1929. He starred in his own series of two-reelers at RKO, and also made feature-film appearances in such RKO features as Melody Cruise and Murder on a Honeymoon. By the mid-1930s, Chandler was an accomplished monologist and hoofer, enabling him to attain a 20th Century-Fox contract. Perhaps too brash and abrasive to make it as a leading man, Chandler nonetheless thrived as a supporting actor. Once in a while he'd play the romantic lead, but it was usually in poverty-row items like PRC's Seven Doorways to Death (1943). While he remained in films until the late 1960s, it was television that afforded Chick Chandler his most substantial latter-day assignments: he co-starred with John Russell on the 1955 syndicated adventure weekly Soldiers of Fortune, and was a regular as the hero's father on the 1961 "newlywed" sitcom One Happy Family.
