He started in the same film Greg Peck debuted.Good villain,also good in The Secret Garden in opening scene discovering Margaret O'Brien's orphaned character,a Colonial in King Solomon's Mines,gangster in Roadblock & Johnny Angel,another villain in cahoots with Georgie-boy Macready (love both those guys,villains or not!).
BigFan Of Gilmore
What happened to this son of the Midwest?58 is awful young to die,and he had a distinguished career.One of his last credited performances he looked quite ill.Need info on this terrific man!
Whatever Was Cause Of Early Death?
Lowell,we hardly got a chance to know ya.Died at age 53,possible chronic disease.No cause given and he'd retired from acting in 1953.Born in Minnesota 1906,first stage acting 1929.First film with Gregory Peck was Days Of Glory,playing Russians vs Nazis.Villain in Johnny Angel opposite George Raft.Wavy blond hair,blue eyes,nice voice,usually played British-type characters.In first scenes in 1949's The Secret Garden,plays British Officer who finds Mary,Margaret O'Brien,alone after a cholera outbreak and gets her to safety and England.Would love to hear what took this man at such an early age,even to contribute to a fund for its cure.
Whatever Happened To This Gentleman?
Saw him in Dr Jekyl,Mr Hyde TV presentation starring Michael Rennie,and Mr Gilmore must've been sickly,as he retired in 1958.He was quite distinguished looking,surprisingly was American,as he sounded British.Must be the stage training.Many great films he acted in,terrific in Johnny Angel as villain!
Born Dec 20,1906 St Paul,MN,died Jan 30,1960 LA,last appearance tv in 1958.First stage performance in 1929,first feature film 1944 with Gregory Peck.Very suave,sophisticated characters.Second film appearance as Basil in The Picture Of Dorian Gray.
Lowell We Hardly Knew Ya
Anybody know what happened to him after his last appearance on screen in 1958?Was he sickly?He died 2 years later at the young age of 53.He must've had a chronic illness,can't believe otherwise.Handsome,wavy hair,big time operator.Good character actor,sorta another Macready-type snake.
Another Shady Character Actor
Lowell Gilmore is a Midwestern version of the Yankee George Macready,both play snakes very well.They acted together in 3 great costumers,Rogues Of Sherwood Forest,The Black Arrow,The Return Of Monte Cristo.Hope they both werefriends in real life,and am surprised there is no bio on Gilmore here.Great actor!
Similar Roles To George Macready
I have to admit,love this guy's acting,too.Suave,attractive,high brow,thought he was English,not just stage trained like Macready.When the two appeared in films together,it's delightful,they both ooze venom so well.Still like Macready better,but this actor's tops,too!
