We devote a lot of time to the stars of noir. What about the little guy? Or the little gruesome guy? Like Percy Helton. Today would have been his birthday...
Check out Percy about 3 minutes into (and even creepier 5 min in) this clip from Wicked Woman!
Percy wasn't always a sleaze. Most of the time he was a regular working joe.
His noir includes:
Kiss Me Deadly (watch the hand!)
Alias Nick Beal
The Set-Up (with a rogues gallery of pugly actors)
The Crooked Way
Terror at Midnight
