Harold Kruger - Rotten Tomatoes

Harold Kruger



A champion swimmer from Hawaii, Harold Kruger (aka Stubby Kruger) was the featured comedian in Billy Rose's Aquacade in the early '30s and, as such, appeared as himself opposite Olympic gold medal winner Johnny Weissmuller (the future "Tarzan") in The Human Fish, a two-reel comedy directed by Clyde Bruckman. The following year, he was credited as "technical advisor" for You Said a Mouthful, a Joe E. Brown comedy with a distinct aquatic theme, but Kruger's own screen career didn't begin until 1941, when old friends Ole Olsen and Chic Johnson cast him in their anarchic Hellzapoppin' (1941). He continued to pop up in bit roles well into the 1950s, but Kruger never became a featured screen comedian in his own right.
