Tierney, Lawrence
▪ 2003

      American actor (b. March 15, 1919, Brooklyn, N.Y.—d. Feb. 26, 2002, Los Angeles, Calif.), appeared in dozens of B movies and generally played the tough guy, most notably the title role in Dillinger (1945) and the head of a gang of killers in Reservoir Dogs (1992). In the heyday of his career, his offscreen life was often a mirror image of his movie roles, and his career suffered for many years before he was able to make a comeback.
