Longtime actor Frank McHugh was practically born on stage, and amassed an amazing amount of screen credits throughout his career. Born into a theatrical family, McHugh began acting in vaudeville with his siblings and parents when he was a child, then later graduated to Broadway. He was hired by Warners in 1930 as a contract player, and appeared in a dizzying amount of titles in the '30s and '40s, often as comic relief. He played a supporting role to Edward G. Robinson in the crime film "The Widow from Chicago," appeared in the classic romantic comedy "The Front Page," and portrayed a dance director alongside good friend James Cagney in the Busby Berkeley production "Footlight Parade" in 1933. He had supporting roles in some of the era's most celebrated pictures, appearing in the Raoul Walsh thriller "The Roaring Twenties" and co-starring with Bing Crosby in his spiritually-themed musical "Going My Way
