Paul Harvey Overview:

Character actor, Paul Harvey, was born Roy Paul Harvey on Sep 10, 1882 in Sandwich, IL. Harvey died at the age of 73 on Dec 5, 1955 in Los Angeles, CA .


Everything about this grey-haired, hearty American actor was large and expansive. He played solid citizens, blustering windbags, comforting fathers, district attorneys who let the hero do the legwork, dyspeptic executives and trilbied authoritarian figures behind desks. After 23 years of such roles, Harvey's long, heavy head, large ears, and solid girth were seen in perhaps their best-remembered guise, the Rev. Mr. Galsworthy in Father of the Bride and Father's Little Dividend. He was still busily acting at 72 at the time of his death from a coronary thrombosis.
