Meyer for Hire

A fissure instead of a maw
Like a maniac scissored his jaw
The cartilage nub
Of his nose is the hub
Of a face that's beyond any law.

David Cairns

As a character actor, meaty Emile Meyer often played a cop. He's very scary as corrupt officer Harry Kelo in Sweet Smell of Success (Alexander Mackendrick, 1957). Image source: Flickr (top); If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger (above).
