His hangdog expression gracing scores of Hollywood films from 1925 to 1950, Frank Austin (born George Francis Austin) portrayed Abraham Lincoln in the 1928 Jack Holt film Court-Martial. Adept at comedy as well as drama, Austin is memorable as the sinister butler in The Laurel and Hardy Murder Case (1930), the prisoner with the sore tooth in the team's Pardon Us (1931), and the diner with high blood pressure in W.C. Fields' Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941). Making his mark on B-Westerns as well, Austin delivered standout performances as the coroner in Reb Russell's Outlaw Rule (1935), the ill-fated Chuckwalla in the serial Riders of Death Valley (1941), and the assayer in Whip Wilson's Arizona Territory (1950), his final screen performance.
