J. Pat O'Malley ACTOR

J. Pat O'Malley was born on March 15th, 1904 in Lancashire, England.  His career in entertainment began as an English singer and later a well known character actor as well.  Many times, J. Pat O'Malley and Patrick H. O'Malley Jr. (Pat O'Malley), both actors, people are confused to be the same man, when indeed, they were both successful in their own right, but are two completely different individuals.
J. Pat O'Malley began his music career in 1925 working as a recording artist and later as a singer for the Jack Hylton orchestra in the United Kingdom for three years.  During the early 1930's he recorded over 400 songs and his success lead to a move to the United States and a interest in pursuing films.
It did not take long for him to begin breaking into the acting industry appearing on a number of film and television roles in the early 1940's.  Some of his earlier work included his film debut, "Lassie Come Home" (1943) starring Roddy McDowall, Donald Crisp, Dame May Whitty, Nigel Bruce, Elsa Lanchester, Alan Napier, Edmund Gwenn and a young Elizabeth Taylor, followed by roles on such television series as, "Stage 13", 'Danger", "Crime Photographer" and "The Adventures of Kit Carson".
In addition to his music, television and film work, he also added a couple stage credits to his resume over the course of his acting career with appearances in such productions as, "Ten Little Indians" and "Dial M for Murder".

Although he appeared in over 200 acting roles, the majority of his work was as a television actor with just an occasional film role.  Some of his more well known television series credits included, "Bonanza", "Death Valley Days", "Make Room for Daddy", "The Beverly Hillbillies", Walt Disney's "The Adventures of Spin and Marty", "Lights Out", "Petticoat Junction", "The Lucy Show", "Rescue 8", "Burke's Law", "Wagon Train", "Hennesey", "The Jim Backus Show", "Zane Grey Theatre", "Perry Mason", "City Detective", "The Dick Van Dyke Show", "I Spy", "Playhouse 90", "Maverick", "Mr. Lucky", "The Islanders", "M Squad", "Lawman", "The Defenders", "Peter Gunn", "Bus Stop", "Suspense" and "Going My Way" among many others.
Some of his film credits include, "Four Boys and a Gun" (1957) with Frank Sutton, Larry Green, Karl Swenson and James Franciscus, "Blueprint for Robbery" (1961) co-starring Robert J. Wilke, Robert Gist and Marion Ross, "Shotgun Wedding" (1963) with Jenny Maxwell, Valerie Allen and Nan Peterson, "Gunn" (1967) starring Craig Stevens and Laura Devon, "Star!" (1968) starring alongside Julie Andrews, Richard Crenna, Anthony Eisley, Daniel Massey, Michael Craig and Robert Reed and his final film role in 1981 in, "Cheaper to Keep Her" also starring Mac Davis, Tovah Feldshuh, Jack Gilford, Rose Marie and Bruce Flanders.
O'Malley also worked on a number of voice over projects for film and television roles such as the voice of 'Buzzie' in, "The Jungle Book" (1967) and the voice of Topper on the 1967 television series, "Johnny Quest".  Other animated film he worked on included, "Mary Poppins" (1964) starring Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke, David Tomlinson, Glynis Johns, Karen Dotrice, Ed Wynn, Matthew Garber and Elsa Lanchester and "The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad".

J. Pat O'Malley married only once to Fay M. O'Malley in 1926 and they had two children together and remained married until he passed away on February 27th, 1985 in San Juan Capistrano, California from heart disease.
