According to the National Cowboy Museum, Walter Brennan “lost half of his teeth in a World War I gas accident and lost the remaining ones in an early movie accident” — which gave his voice its distinctive whistle… Walter Brennan owned a large cattle ranch near Joseph, Oregon… It’s true: Walter Brennan won three of the first five Oscars given for supporting actor. He was also nominated in year six for Sergeant York (1941) but did not win and was never nominated again. He and Jack Nicholson are the only men to win three acting Oscars.
