~Gino Corrado~

Born: February 9, 1893 in Florence, Italy
Died: December 23, 1982 in Woodland Hills, California, USA
~Gino Corrado in a scene from The Desert Flower, 1925~
Enjoying one of the longer careers in Hollywood history, Gino Corrado is today best remembered as a
stocky bit-part player whose pencil-thin mustache made him the perfect screen barber, maître d', or
hotel clerk, roles he would play in both major and Poverty Row films that ranged from Citizen Kane
(1941) and Casablanca (1942) to serials such as The Lost City (1935) and, perhaps his
best-remembered performance, the Three Stooges short Micro Phonies (1945; he was the bombastic
Signor Spumoni).

A graduate of his native College of Strada, Corrado finished his education at St. Bede College in Peru,
IL, and entered films with D.W. Griffith in the early 1910s, later claiming to have played bit parts in
both Birth of a Nation (1915) and Intolerance (1916). By the mid-1910s, he was essaying the "other
man" in scores of melodramas, now billed under the less ethnic-sounding name of Eugene Corey. He
became Geno Corrado in the 1920s but would work under his real name in literally hundreds of
sound films, a career that lasted well into the 1950s and also included live television appearances. In
a case of life imitating art, Corrado reportedly supplemented his income by working as a waiter in
between acting assignments.
