After serving in the British army during World War I, Alan Mowbray took to stage acting in his native England. Soon afterward, he moved to the United States, where he toured with the Theater Guild and later made his debut on Broadway. With the advent of the "talkies," Mowbray began to land work in Hollywood, often cast as an upper-class gentleman, aristocrat, or royalty. His first credited role was 1931's "God's Gift to Women," but he quickly followed it up with a number of pictures that same year, including an acclaimed turn as George Washington in "Alexander Hamilton." Mowbray also starred in the first movie made in three-strip Technicolor with 1935's "Becky Sharp." He acted in a myriad of films up through the 1950s, including three Sherlock Holmes movies, two John Ford pictures ("My Darling Clementine" and "Wagon Master"), and the Alfred Hitchcock thriller "The Man Who Knew Too Much." He also appeared on television as the lead in 1953's "Colonel Humphrey Flack." In addition to his many roles as an actor, Mowbray is also remembered for funding the early days of the Screen Actors Guild when it was first founded in 1933. The actor began appearing primarily in television roles in the 1950s, and would continue this trend through the following decade.
