Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jack La Rue (birth name: Gaspere Biondolillo) (May 3, 1902, New York City, New York - January 11, 1984, Santa Monica, California) was a film and stage actor. He worked on the New York stage; the Internet Broadway Database lists seven Broadway credits for him from 1923 to 1931. He moved to Hollywood, where he appeared in numerous films. Sometimes mistaken for Humphrey Bogart, he played mostly thugs and gangsters. For example, in such a role, La Rue tormented the wrongly-accused Richard Cromwell in Universal Pictures's anti-Nazi action drama Enemy Agent (1940). He is the father of actor Jack La Rue, Jr. La Rue died of a heart attack at the age of 81 and was buried in Culver City, California.
