John Hart

Actor

Born - 13 December 1917, Los Angeles, California, USA

Huskily handsome American actor with genial smile who played leads in minor films and bit parts in bigger pictures. Although he made more than 100 feature films, his greatest success came as, first, a hero of movie serials, then, on TV, as The Lone Ranger (after Clayton Moore gave up the role) and Hawkeye in the series Last of the Mohicans both in the 1950s. His film debut came at 20 in Daughter of Shanghai. Among scores of others were Northwest Mounted Police (1940), followed by war service that disrupted the progress of his career, Last of the Redmen (1947), Warpath (1951), The Crooked Web (1955), The Shaggy Dog (1959), Marnie (1964), 36 Hours (1965), the lead in Blackenstein (1973) and The Legend of the Lone Ranger (1981), his last. He was married to actress Beryl Bainbridge.
