Biography

A genial, durable character actor, boyishly handsome yet still ordinary looking, Noah Beery Jr appeared in over 100 films. He began as a child performer in silents and remained busy until the mid-1980s. Beery came from a distinguished family of film actors: his father was one of the most notable screen villains of the first half century of American cinema, and his uncle Wallace Beery was a prolific silent screen star who, in late middle age, became a popular MGM player. Beery, though perhaps less attention-getting in his acting style, nonetheless brought warmth and good humor to an incredibly prolific career spanning over 60 years.
