Pat Harmon Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Feb 3, 1888
  • Died: Nov 26, 1958

Granite-faced, mustachioed American character actor Pat Harmon began his film career in 1922. A comedy "regular," Harmon was closely associated with Harold Lloyd in the 1920s, playing the juicy role of the college football coach in The Freshman (1925). During the talkie era, he worked with The Marx Brothers in Monkey Business (1931, as the harried passport official) and Laurel & Hardy (as the tongue-twisting conductor in 1929's Berth Marks and the field officer in 1932's Pack Up Your Troubles). In addition, Pat Harmon worked steadily at Paramount and MGM as Wallace Beery's double. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
