Harry Carey, Jr.

Harry Carey, Jr. (born May 16, 1921) is an American actor. He has appeared in over 90 films (several were Westerns directed by John Ford) and numerous television series. Harry Carey, Jr. was born Henry G. Carey in Saugus, California, the son of actor Harry Carey (1878–1947) and actress Olive Fuller Golden (1896–1988). As a boy, he was nicknamed "Dobe", short for adobe, because of the color of his hair. He served with the United States Navy during World War II. A respected character actor like his father, Carey appeared in several Westerns. He made four films with director Howard Hawks: Red River, which also featured his father (although they never shared a scene), Monkey Business, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and Rio Bravo. Carey made ten films with actor John Wayne, starting with Red River and ending with Cahill U.S. Marshal. Carey collaborated frequently with director John Ford, a close friend, and became a regular in what was commonly called the John Ford Stock Company.
