      Elisha Cook Jr.

      Elisha Cook Jr.

      Highest Rated: 100% Don't Bother to Knock (1952)

      Lowest Rated: 0% National Lampoon's Movie Madness (1981)

      Birthday: Dec 26, 1903

      Birthplace: San Francisco, California, USA

      Diminutive, wiry character player memorable for his numerous roles as cowardly villians and neurotics. Originally from vaudeville and the Broadway stage, Cook, who briefly entered films in 1929 before returning to the stage, made a strong impression with his definitive sniveling gunsel in "The Maltese Falcon" (1941), and followed with similar roles as weaklings or sadistic loser-hoods: Harry Jones in "The Big Sleep" (1946) and George Peatty in Stanley Kubrick's "The Killing" (1956) over a more than sixty-year career.
