Schilling Mini Biography Former burlesque comedian who usually portrayed nervous types on screen. In films from 1940. IMDb Mini Biography By: Bill Takacs Spouse Betty Rowland (? - ?) (divorced) Trivia Although Gus was usually cast as comic relief, he appears in many of Orson Welles' major films, starting with Citizen Kane (1941) through his posthumous appearance in Touch of Evil (1958). A wonderfully surreal running gag occurs in Gus' two-reel comedies with Richard Lane: for no reason, a young woman will walk by Gus, stop, slap him hard across the face and shout "How DARE you look like someone I hate?!" Uncle of film director Barry Sonnenfeld.
