Francis Lumsden Hare (17 October 1874 – 28 August 1964) was an Irish-born American film and theatre actor. He was also a theatre director and theatrical producer.

Early years

Hare was born in County Tipperary, Ireland. He studied at St. Dunstan's College in London.[2]

Hare appeared in more than 35 Broadway productions between 1900 and 1942.[3] In 1908, he made his Broadway debut in the play What Every Woman Knows, starring Maude Adams. Throughout his career, he occasionally also did double duty as director (Peter's Mother [1918][4]) or producer (What Every Woman Knows [1926 revival],[5] Elmer Gantry [1928],[6] etc.)

He began appearing in films in 1916. The New York Times critic Mordaunt Hall praised his performances repeatedly:

  • Scotland Yard (1930): "Lumsden Hare's interpretation of the knowledgeful Scotland Yard commissioner is intelligent and well-spoken."[7]
  • Svengali (1931): "with Dundreary whiskers, is splendid as Taffy."[8]
  • The World Moves On (1934): "plays Mary's father with a gratifying authority."[9]

By his final screen appearance in 1961, Hare had amassed over 140 film credits and appeared in over a dozen television productions.

Personal life and death

Hare was married to actress Selene Johnson. He died 28 August 1964, aged 89, in Beverly Hills, California.[2]
