early 1930s RKO actor?

Postby DickLindsay » Fri Feb 15, 2019 11:45 am

Hello all:
I am trying to identify this actor; it was suggested to me that he is from RKO Radio Studios, circa 1932-1933. The DH is not the name of the film, but most probably his initials. any ideas?

Does anyone know a character actor by the name of 'oscar dutch hendrian' I am trying to find an early photo of him; the NC on the bottom of this photo corresponds with a warners title NARROW CORNER. He was in that film as well as many RKO films in the 1932-1933 period. thanks!

I can tell you right now that that is not a picture of Dutch Hendrian, he's an ex-boxer who plays thugs and pug uglies. You can see him play the football referee around 14:40 in THREE LITTLE PIGSKINS with the Three Stooges:

and at the time of THE NARROW CORNER, he was thirty-six years of age.

I've seen the guy in this pic before, he's a lesser-known secondary lead, I just haven't had time to rack my brain and remember what I saw him in recently.

This is John Horsley, and here is the film in which he has his one major role:
