Anthony George

Anthony George was born on January 29, 1921 in  Endicott, New York, United States, is Actor. Virile-looking actor Anthony George is best remembered for a couple of popular TV crime series back in the early 1960s. Born Octavio George in Endicott, New York, he began in small roles in motion pictures and TV in the 1950s. Picked up by 20th Century-Fox he was sometimes billed as Tony George or Ott George in such "B" movies as You Never Can Tell (1951), Three Bad Sisters (1956), Chicago Confidential (1957) and Gunfire at Indian Gap (1957). More often than not, however, he appeared uncredited and his dark, swarthy features usually had him typed as minor heavies (convicts, thugs, mobsters, etc.). The fast pace and expectations of making movies proved too much for the actor, however, and he suffered a nervous breakdown during one such filming. Traveling back East to recover, TV ended up being a more adaptable medium. He finally hit pay dirt in 1960 when he was cast as a tough-talking good guy, agent Cam Allison, alongside Robert Stack's Eliot Ness in The Untouchables (1959). He abruptly left that series to head up his own cast as investigator Don Corey in the detective drama Checkmate (1960). The show lasted two seasons and made him a familiar face, if not a household name. Following this peak, he became a steadfast presence in daytime soaps with regular roles on Dark Shadows (1966), Search for Tomorrow (1951) and One Life to Live (1968). On occasion he would appear on stage and in 1966 had a chance to play Nicky Arnstein in "Funny Girl" at Los Angeles' Ahmanson Theatre opposite singing comedienne and impressionist Marilyn Michaels, who was known for her dead-on impersonation of Barbra Streisand. Other productions would include "The Front Page," "Winterset," "Come Blow Your Horn" and "Cactus Flower." A voice-over actor in commercials as well, Anthony George died of complications from lung disease in Los Angeles, California on March 16, 2005.

He was born in the village of Endicott, New York, the second son of Italian immigrant parents. From the age of six, George dreamed of being in films. After serving in World War II, George moved to Hollywood. Though the first few years were lean, by 1950, he had received his first credit and the work began to accumulate. The vast majority of George's roles were on television.


In 1955, George appeared as Sergei in the episode "Mightier Than the Sword" of the religion anthology television series, Crossroads, based on stories about American clergymen. He guest-starred in an episode of the syndicated television series, the sitcom, How to Marry a Millionaire, with Barbara Eden and in the first Brian Keith series, Crusader, a 1955–1956 Cold War drama which aired on CBS.


George was cast as an Indian guide in the 1956 episode "Death in the Snow" of NBC's anthology series, The Joseph Cotten Show: On Trial; Cotton later returned the favor, guest-starring in the episode "Face in the Window" of Checkmate. George portrayed Indian roles in the CBS western series, Brave Eagle, starring Keith Larsen as a young Cheyenne chief who tries to maintain peace with the white community. George was cast in the episodes "The Treachery of At-Ta-Tu" (1955), as Night Wind in "Voice of the Serpent" (1955), and as Red Wing in "Witch Bear" (1956).


On July 31, 1957, George was cast as Nick Frazee, a bank robber who kills a deputy sheriff before making his getaway, in the episode "Hold Up" of the syndicated crime drama, Sheriff of Cochise. Sheriff Frank Morgan (John Bromfield), based in Cochise County in Arizona, establishes roadblocks in pursuit of Frazee and two of his men, but the fleeing bandits take an isolated road into the mountains.


In 1958, Anthony George played an escaped mental patient in an episode of Highway Patrol, a police drama starring Broderick Crawford. (The first name of George's acting credits is sometimes Anthony, sometimes Tony.)


Later in 1959, at the age of thirty-eight, George was cast as federal agent Cam Allison in the first season of ABC's The Untouchables, with Robert Stack. He left that series when he landed his role on Checkmate, but The Untouchables outlasted Checkmate by a total of two years. Checkmate was George's most successful series. After Checkmate, George appeared in the lead in "The Johnny Masters Story" on another ABC western, Wagon Train.


George's longest-running success came from his decades-long career in daytime television soap-operas. In 1967, George replaced Mitchell Ryan as the brooding Burke Devlin on Dark Shadows. Some months later, the character was "killed" in a plane crash, and George created the role of Jeremiah Collins in a flashback to the year 1795. The story ran for most of 1967, until Jeremiah was killed off. George obtained further roles on CBS's Search for Tomorrow (as Dr. Tony Vincente, 1970–1975) and One Life to Live, the latter as Dr. Will Vernon #3.


In the late 1970s and early 1980s, One Life to Live was written and produced by many Dark Shadows alumni, which led to a scene where former Dark Shadows stars George, Nancy Barrett, and Grayson Hall, as their Llanview counterparts, wondered where they had previously met.


After being written out of One Life to Live in 1984, George continued to make sporadic film and television appearances. In 1988, he played the role of Alex Karides in "Baja, Humbug" in the CBS crime drama, Simon and Simon.


In 1991, George was awarded a Bronze Star on the Sidewalk of Stars in Binghamton, New York, close to Endicott, where he was born and raised.


George died of emphysema in 2005, aged 84, in a hospital in Newport Beach, Orange County, California.
