A boyishly handsome American leading man of the 1930s, most memorably in the title role opposite Katharine Hepburn in "The Little Minister" (1934), John Beal also has the distinction of having starred in "The Necklace" (NBC, 1949), the very first dramatic program to win an Emmy Award. His long journeyman career took him from 1930 into the 90s, and included appearances on "Studio One," in the original TV version of "12 Angry Men," and portraying the original Jim Matthews on NBC's daytime soap "Another World" (1964).
