Michael Mark (March 15, 1886 – February 3, 1975) was an American film actor. He appeared in over 120 films between 1928 and 1969. A native of New Brunswick, New Jersey, Mark was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Mark. M. Gushy and a 1954 graduate of New Brunswick Senior High School. His uncle was an actor in Albania, and his sister was an actress in France. He attended Rutgers University but left to enlist in the Air Force. While he was stationed in Cut Bank, Montana, he was master of ceremonies for an Air Force group that entertained in the central and western United States.Mark began his career in an apprenticeship with the Theater By the Sea in Matunuck, Rhode Island. An opportunity came sooner than he anticipated when an actor did not show up and Mark took his place in a production of Stalag 17. After his military service, he acted at Foothill Playhouse in Middlesex Boro and then went to the American Theater Wing acting school in New York.During the 1930s and 1940s, he was used by Universal Studios in minor roles for several Frankenstein movies, although he played different parts in each of them. He is perhaps best-remembered as the desperate father of the killed girl in Frankenstein (1931) with Boris Karloff. Mark died in Los Angeles, California, in 1975.
