Jerome Cowan (October 6, 1897January 24, 1972) appeared in over 100 films but is probably best remembered for two roles in classic films: He played Miles Archer, the doomed private eye partner of Sam Spade, in "The Maltese Falcon"; he was also the hapless district attorney, Thomas Mara, who is forced to cross-examine his own son about the existence of Santa Claus, in "Miracle on 34th Street".

The New York-born actor also played Dagwood Bumstead's boss Mr. Radcliffe in several installments of Columbia Pictures' "Blondie" series. He also appeared in "Deadline at Dawn", "June Bride", and "High Sierra".

In the 1964-1965 television season, Cowan appeared as the demanding Herbert Wilson with Walter Brennan in the 32-episode ABC series "The Tycoon".
