  • Gerald Mohr was one of the most talented American radio, film and TV actors of his time.

    Gerald Mohr's acting career was a mixture of radio, film and television work, with a little stage thrown in. During the 1940s he appeared in over 500 radio plays and was the voice of Philip Marlowe in over 90 episodes of the CBS radio series from 1948-1950. He was mainly a 'B' movie film star, most notably as one of the seven actors who played "The Lone Wolf" during 1946-47. Also notable appearance at that time was in the film noir "Gilda" (1946), in a 5-minute dancing scene with Rita Hayworth. His best movie starring roles included "The Blonde Bandit" (1950), "Sirocco" (1951), "The Buckskin Lady" (1957), "Terror in the Haunted House" (1958), "Guns, Girls and Gangsters" (1959), "A Date with Death" (1959), and "The Angry Red Planet" (1960)(in colour). During the 1950s and 1960s he appeared in over 120 guest star appearances in TV series such as Maverick, Cheyenne, Bronco, Bonanza, Sugarfoot, Outlaws, Perry Mason, Hawaiian Eye, playing cowboys, Mexicans, Italians, Greeks and even Americans! He was a tall, dark and handsome, very versatile actor with a charm and sense of humour which shone through, even when playing cowboy baddies. Gerald Mohr's only 'A' listed film appearance was as Tom Branca in Funny Girl (1968), made shortly before his sudden and untimely death at the age of 54 from a heart attack on 9 November 1968 in Stockholm, Sweden.
