American actor of over 80 films in his 50-year career, the brother of actor Scott Brady. Tierney had a very brief career on stage before entering films in 1943. His most memorable film was the lead in "Dillinger" at the age of 26, followed by "The Greatest Show on Earth," "Abduction" and more. He played mostly gangsters and tough guys in many B- pictures.
Tierney attended Manhattan College where he excelled in track athletics. By the 1950s, he had many skirmishes with the police over numerous drinking and brawling episodes, leading to wide publicity for being a wild man. Booze was his main handicap, leading to such behavior as tearing a public phone off the wall, hitting a waiter in the face with a sugar bowl, breaking a college student's jaw and choking a taxi-driver.
After several stokes, pneumonia and ill health for several years, Tierney died in a Los Angeles nursing home on 2/26/2002.
