Harry Worth

Harry J. Worth (1903–1975) English Actor. Harry J. Worth was born on February 6, 1903, in England. All of his films from 1919 to 1929 are British productions. He came to the US in 1929, where his British film experience gave him the background to find his way to the Broadway stage, where he appeared in various productions until coming to Hollywood in 1935.

His first film role was in Universal's Tailspin Tommy in The Great Air Mystery (1935) serial. Worth returned to serials twice more at Republic - as crooked banker banker Calvin Drake in Adventures of Red Ryder (1940) and as the archaeologist who turns out to be the masked "Scorpion" in Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941).

Worth left films after playing a gambler in The Adventures of Mark Twain (1944) and may have returned to the stage, although Social Security records have him in California until 1951. In 1965 he retired to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he lived with an older sister, Beatrice Gregg, a former actress, until his death on November 3, at an Albuquerque hospital. Private cremation services took place at Fairview Park Crematory in Albuquerque. Worth was survived by one sister, Beatrice Gregg of Albuquerque and a cousin in Los Angeles.
