~Biography~
Cadaverous character actor Tully Marshall attended the University of Santa Clara in the 1880s.
Drifting into acting, Marshall first appeared onstage at the age of 26, turning professional shortly
thereafter. He had nearly a quarter century of theatrical experience behind him when he made his
first film in 1914. Like his fellow actors Charles Coburn and Donald Crisp, Marshall was one of those
performers who seemed to have been born at the age of 60. Throughout the silent era, he played a
vast array of drunken trail scouts, lovable grandpas, unforgiving fathers, sinister attorneys and
lecherous aristocrats. In films until his death at the age of 78, one of the best of Tully Marshall's last
performances was as the wheelchair-bound criminal mastermind in This Gun For Hire (1942).
