Academy Award Winner for Best Supporting Actor ( 3 times, still a record) Walter Brennan.

Before becoming an actor, Walter Brennan made a fortune in real estate - which he lost during the Great Depression (sound familiar?) He had performed in vaudeville so he turned to acting full time to get a job. He was a great success. He performed in dozens of films, made a couple of records, but Boomers will remember him best as Grandpa in the tv show The Real McCoys.
