Biography

Son of Harry Harvey, a Broadway star and long-time character actor of Hollywood film and TV, Harry Harvey Jr. managed to carve out his own little niche, albeit on a smaller scale. One of his best known roles is that of Crewman Randall in the 1956 sci-fi classic "Forbidden Planet." He also trod the Western path that was well worn by his dad, appearing as Dave Barker in several episodes of "The Adventures of Kit Carson" in the early '50s and jumping from there into a recurring, irregular role on "The Roy Rogers Show." However, as the sort of straightforward Western TV productions of the '50s and early '60s waned in favor of more sophisticated small-screen entertainment, so do did his career. His last appearance was on a '70 episode of the police drama "Mannix." As a matter of trivia, Harvey Jr. also had an uncredited appearance as a youngster in the most famous of all Ronald Reagan dramas, '40's "Knute Rockne All American."
