MINI BIO:

Lean, straight-backed American actor, a leading man of silents with occasional forays into silky villainy. His slightly sinister personality became a concerned one as the sound years wore on, and he became totally identified with his running role as the wise paterfamilias, Judge Hardy, in the Andy Hardy series. Nominated for an Academy Award on The Patriot. Died from a heart attack when trying to chase vandals from his property.
