American actor Richard Cromwell, sometimes known as Roy Radabaugh, was born LeRoy Melvin Radabaugh on January 8, 1910, and passed away on October 11, 1960.
In the 1930 motion picture King of Jazz, which stars Paul Whiteman and his band, Radabaugh can be seen.
Friends urged him to try out for the adaptation of the Richard Barthelmess silent film Tol'able David in 1930 on a whim (1930).
Radabaugh defeated thousands of competitors to land the job. Harry Cohn gave him his movie identity and started his career in fairytale manner.
Tol'able David paid Cromwell $75 each week for his labor. John Carradine and Noah Beery Sr. both starred in the movie.
