Character actor, famous for his roles in "Min and Bill", "The Champ", "Dinner at Eight", and "Treasure Island", amongst others. Usually played the tough, gruff, folksy parts. Wallace started out in the Ringling Bros. circus, then moved onto Broadway and then onto Hollywood, where he started out in the silents in the "Swedie" comedies (playing a maid!). He then moved onto character roles. He had also been married to Gloria Swanson, though their marriage only lasted two years due to Wallace's heavy drinking.
