      Stanley Blystone

      Highest Rated: 98% Modern Times (1936)

      Lowest Rated: 80% Charlie Chan at the Wax Museum (1940)

      Birthday: Aug 1, 1894

      Birthplace: Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA

      The brother of director John G. Blystone, actor Stanley Blystone was best known for playing the villainous foil to Larry, Moe, and Curly in numerous "Three Stooges" comedies. He debuted in the silent era, and one of his earliest credits was as a gamin's unemployed father in Charlie Chaplin's classic about factory life "Modern Times." Blystone's first standout role as a bad guy was as the corrupt ringmaster alongside Tom Mix in the film "Circus Ace." He was first cast opposite the Three Stooges as the no-nonsense Captain of the Guard authority figure in "Restless Nights," but he wouldn't hit his stride until he appeared in the Stooge classic "Half Shot Shooters" as the malicious Sergeant MacGillicuddy, who tries to blow the three comics away with a shot from a cannon. He returned to play opposite the Stooges in "Spook Louder," in which he played the nefarious spy leader, and "Slaphappy Sleuths," in which he portrayed a malevolent crook who robs the Stooges' gas stations. After Columbia's Stooge movies came to a close, Blystone transitioned into television and he was walking to the set of a Desilu production in 1956 when he collapsed and died of a heart attack.
