Jim Hutton ACTOR


Jim Hutton was born on May 31st, 1934 in Binghamton, New York with the birth name Dana James Hutton.  When he became an adult he first got involved in acting performing in live theater in Germany while he was serving in the United States Army.  He was actually the founding actor and director of the first English-speaking theatre in Berlin.  During this time an American director by the name of Douglas Sirk took notice of him and chose to cast him in some films.
He was cast in, "The Twilight Zone" (1959).  Jim soon relocated to Hollywood to continue his pursuit of a career in acting.  Hutton was cast in the film, "Where the Boys Are" (1960) starring alongside Paula Prentiss, Dolores Hart, George Hamilton, Frank Gorshin, Yvette Mimieux, Chill Wills and Connie Frances followed by roles on, "The Honeymoon Machine" (1960), "Bachelor in Paradise" (1961) starring Bob Hope, Lana Turner, Paul Prentiss, Janis Paige and Agnes Moorehead and "The Horizontal Lieutenant" (1962) also starring Paula Prentiss, Charles McGraw, Jim Backus, and Jack Carter.  
Hutton did one more final feature appearance in, 'Walk, Don't Run" (1966) co-starring Cary Grant and Samantha Eggar.  He proved himself to viewers that not only was he a talented comedic actor but he was also capable of taking on challenging dramatic roles such as in 1965 in, "Major Dundee" starring Charlton Heston and Richard Harris and "The Green Berets" starring John Wayne, Aldo Ray and David Janssen.  He is most remembered for his role as, Ellery Queen in the 1970's television series title as his character name.

One of his sons, Timothy Hutton, followed in his fathers footsteps and also became an actor.  When his son was awarded an Academy Award he made a public announcement that he was dedicating the award to his father.  Hutton remained living in Los Angeles, California until he passed away two days after his 45th birthday on June 2nd, 1979 after suffering from liver cancer.
