Cyrus Willard Kendall (March 10, 1898 July 22, 1953) was an American film actor. He appeared in more than 140 films between 1935 and 1950. Kendall's heavy-set, square-jawed appearance and deep voice were perfect for wiseguy roles such as policemen and police chiefs, wardens, military officers, bartenders, reporters, and mobsters.

On old-time radio, Kendall portrayed Judge Carter in the drama The Remarkable Miss Tuttle. [1] On early television, he played detective Jonas Flint on the game show Armchair Detective. [2]

Kendall was born in St. Louis, Missouri and died in Woodland Hills, California.
