The youngest son of actor Bernard Gorcey, David Gorcey reached Broadway at the tender age of 14 when he was cast in Sidney Kingsley's Dead End. During the early stages of production, David secured a role in the play for his older brother Leo. It was Leo who subsequently rose to stardom, while the quieter, self-effacing David seemed content to remain a background player. After making his film debut in 1938, David was cast in Universal's "Little Tough Guys" series, an offshoot of Warners' Dead End Kids films, which of course spotlighted brother Leo. When Leo moved to Monogram's East Side Kids David went along in the featured role of Pee-wee. After serving in the military, David rejoined Leo at Monogram, appearing as Chuck in the Bowery Boys series beginning in 1946. Evidently to avoid accusations of nepotism, David adopted his mother's maiden name of Condon for billing purposes. The younger Gorcey outlasted Leo as a Bowery Boy, remaining with the series until its final entry, 1958's In the Money. During this period, he occasionally accepted minor roles at other studios, usually playing a newsboy (most amusingly in 1950's Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion). David Gorcey became a minister after retiring from films, devoting his time and energy to anti-drug programs for LA ghetto youths.
