Neil Hamilton ACTOR


Neil Hamilton was born on September 9th, 1899 in Lynn, Massachusetts as an only child with his first name being James.  When he completed his schooling he began working as a model and appeared in a number of magazines and then developed an interest in acting.
He first began appearing on stage in some stock companies and in 1918 broke into the film industry with his first role on "The Beloved Imposter".  This role was followed by a number of other small roles and soon in 1923 he got his big break when he appeared on the big screen in "The White Rose".
Hamilton worked on a number of other films and soon Paramount Pictures took notice of him and he soon became one of their most popular leading men.  Due to his good looks and popularity, Hamilton worked consistently in Hollywood on films and television.
He had no issue making the transition from silent to sound films during the 1920's and he continued to work appearing on such films as, "The Dawn Patrol" (1930) and "Tarzan the Ape Man" (1932).
He also worked on such television shows as "Kraft Theatre" (1949-1956), "The Adventures of Jim Bowie" (1958-1959), "Maverick" (1959), "Lock Up" (1960-1961) and "77 Sunset Strip" (1959-1962) and Mister Ed (1962-1965).  He is most well known for his role as the Police Commissioner in the television series "Batman" (1966) and appeared in all 120 episodes.
Throughout his career he appeared in a total of 268 films, both sound and silent films.   
Neil Hamilton married only once to Elsa Whitmer in 1933 and they had one child together and remained married until he passed away on September 24th, 1984 in Escondido, California after suffering from complications with asthma at the age of eighty five.  His remains were cremated and his ashes were scattered at sea.
