Jack Duffy (actor)

Jack Duffy (September 4, 1882 – July 23, 1939) was an American film actor. He appeared in 85 films between 1916 and 1937, usually looking older than his age with his make-up. He acted in a series of silent shorts for the Christie Film Company, a pioneering movie studio that specialized in producing situational comedies, but also appeared in some Buster Keaton comedies. When his acting career declined in the early 1930s, he continued to work in his dual capacity of make-up artist. Duffy was born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and died in Hollywood, California. His sister was actress Kate Price.
