Hardie Albright Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Dec 16, 1903
  • Died: Dec 7, 1975

Born to a family of vaudevillians, Hardie Albright studied drama at Carnegie Tech and took classes at the Art Institute of Chicago before embarking upon his adult theatrical career. He made his New York debut with Eva Le Gallienne's company in 1926, and his motion picture bow in 1931. Though typed as a virile, athletic leading man, there was always the air of dishonesty surrounding Albright's performances; as such, he was better off playing unsympathetic roles. Since one of his trademarks was a fixed, insincere grin, it is altogether appropriate that his last Hollywood role was as the double-crossing "Smiley" in [[Feature~V2373~Angel on My Shoulder~angelonmyshoulder]] (1946). His final film appearance was in exploitation producer Kroger Babb's notorious [[Feature~V33064~Mom and Dad~momanddad]], a 1949 quickie about sex education. In his last years, Hardie Albright wrote several informative textbooks on the art of acting, and also taught drama classes at UCLA. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
