Syd Saylor (born Leo Sailor;[citation needed] March 24, 1895 – December 21, 1962)[1] was an American comedic actor and movie cowboy sidekick who appeared in 395 films and television series between 1926 and 1962.

Early years

Saylor's father, George Sailor, was in San Francisco when the 1906 San Francisco earthquake hit the area. He was never seen again. Saylor was a member of several local actors' groups and discovered he had a knack for making people laugh. An uncle was a captain in the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department—and a former member of Mack Sennett's comedy troupe, The Keystone Kops. Saylor 's uncle used his connections in the Hollywood film industry to get Saylor 's foot in the door to films.[citation needed] In the silent film days of the 1920s, he had his own series of two-reel comedy shorts.[1]

Saylor graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago and worked as an artist before venturing into acting.[2]

Career

Saylor went on to have a prolific career as a character actor, set apart from other character actors by his protruding Adam's apple and unique comedic speaking voice. He appeared in everything from comedies to westerns, usually as the hero's comical sidekick.[1]

Saylor was also the second television "Bozo the Clown" on KTTV Ch. 11 in Hollywood, California during the early 1950s.

Personal life and death

Saylor was married in Chicago in 1920. On September 5, 1941, his wife, Marie, obtained a divorce in Los Angeles. They had a daughter, Jeanne.[3] He died in Hollywood in 1962, aged 67.
