  • Towering character actor Matthew Betz toured in vaudeville and stock before making his film debut in 1921. Betz' best-remembered silent-screen assignment was as Schani Eberle in Von Stroheim's The Wedding March. He proved that sound would be no obstacle to his career by appearing in the first all-talkie horror film The Terror (1928). Most often cast as a menacing gangster, Betz was also seen in the plum role of Hugo the Mute in 1932's Mystery of the Wax Museum. Undoubtedly his least taxing role was in Salvation Nell (1931), in which he was cast as "Matthew Betz"!
