Syd Saylor born Leo Sailor, was a light comedy actor and movie cowboy sidekick who appeared in 395 films and TV series between 1926 and 1962. His father George was in San Francisco when the big 1906 earthquake hit the area. He was never seen again. Syd was a member of several local actors groups and discovered he had a knack for making people laugh. An uncle was a captain in the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department—and a former member of Mack Sennett's comedy troupe The Keystone Kops. Syd's uncle used his connections in the Hollywood film industry to get Syd's foot in the door to films. In the silent film days of the 1920s he had his own series of two-reel shorts.

He appeared in everything from comedies to westerns, usually as the hero's comical sidekick. Saylor was also the second television "Bozo the Clown" on KTTV Ch
