Actor Morgan Conway made his first film appearance in Looking for Trouble (1934). He arrived in Hollywood just in time to get on the ground floor of the industry's burgeoning labor movement; along with such notables as Boris Karloff and Lyle Talbot, Conway was a founding member of the Screen Actors Guild. While under contract to RKO in 1945, Conway was assigned to star in Dick Tracy, Detective, becoming the second actor to impersonate Chester Gould's jut-jawed comic-strip detective (Ralph Byrd was the first). After his brief spurt of stardom, Morgan Conway went back to secondary roles, leaving movies altogether in 1949.
