Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

Donald Kirke was born May 17, 1901, in Jersey City, NJ, and died May 18, 1971, in Los Angeles, CA. Onscreen from 1930 through the 1950s, Donald Kirke usually played mustachioed B-Western villains but could also be found among the thugs in action-melodramas and serials. At Republic Pictures in the mid-'30s, Kirke enjoyed a brief stay with posh MGM in the early '40s but his roles there were small. He later appeared on the television Western Maverick.
