The first movie I remember

The first movie I remember seeing Harry in was "Orchestra Wives" from back in the early 40's. It starred George Montgomery and a very young Dale Evans, before she starred with Roy Rogers. Harry was never a big, big star but you always zeroed in on him, whether it was a western, a current film, or supporting on some tv role. He was a great actor and why he never got a lifetime achievement or academy award is beyond me. He added so much to any project just by being there. Rest in Peace Harry.

All I can say is thanks.
