Harry Carey Jr

Actor

Born - 16 May 1921, Saugus, California, USA
Died - 27 December 2012

A character actor predominantly in westerns, Carey was the son of silent and early sound western star Harry Carey, but completely unlike his father in looks, with a cherubic, apple-cheeked face topped by tousled gingery fair hair. After a single early appearance in his father's Sunset Pass (1933), the younger Carey began in semi-leading roles as young westerners undergoing baptisms of fire, but settled into grizzled outdoorsmen while still in his thirties: Rolling Home (1946), Pursued (1947), Red River (1948), 3 Godfathers (1948), She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949), Wagonmaster (1950), Rio Grande (1950), Warpath (1951), Niagara (1953), Mister Roberts (1955), The Searchers (1956), Rio Bravo (1959), Two Rode Together (1961), Cheyenne Autumn (1964), Shenandoah (1965), The Way West (1967), The Undefeated (1969), Big Jake (1971), Cahill (1973), Nickelodeon (1976), The Long Riders (1980), Gremlins (1984), Mask (1985), The Whales of August (1987), Bad Jim (1989), Tombstone (1993), The Sunchaser (1996) and the TV movie Last Stand at Saber River (1997), his last.
