David Landau - Rotten Tomatoes

David Landau



Foghorn-voiced stage actor David Landau was brought to Hollywood in 1931 to re-create his Broadway role of the homicidal Maurrant in Elmer Rice's Street Scene. Landau went on to appear in 32 films over a four-year period. Seldom permitted to play a sympathetic role, Landau thrived in parts calling for drunkenness (1932's Taxi), brutality (1932's I Am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang) and all-around skullduggery (Mae West's 1933 vehicle She Done Him Wrong). Modern filmgoers will recall David Landau as high-rolling gambler Jennings in the Marx Brothers' Horse Feathers (1932) and as the mysterious, tattered transient Bob Gillis in Will Rogers' Judge Priest (1934).
