George O’Hara


Appreciated for his function in early 20th-century silent motion pictures, he most famously made an appearance as boxer Gale Galen in the favorite Fighting Blood vessels movie series. Early in his profession, he appeared in various Mack Sennett-directed features, including a favorite 1920 silent love titled Like, Honor, and Behave. He didn’t fully transition in the silent film period to age sound films; nevertheless, he do make uncredited performances in The Grapes of Wrath (1940), Cadet Female (1941), and various other mid-century features. Blessed George Bolger, he spent his start in NY, NY, and the majority of his youth in LA, California. He performed the villainous half-sibling of John Barrymore’s personality in the 1926 film THE OCEAN Beast.
