Actor. Born the son of actors Lucile and James Gleason, it was only natural that he would follow in his parents' footsteps, initially performing in their stage productions. Beginning his film career with the release of five films, including "The Sophomore" and "The Flying Fool" in 1929, he went on to act in over fifty films, the most acclaimed of which was the award-winning "All Quiet on the Western Front" in 1930. Later he co-starred with his parents in a recurring role in Republic's "Higgins Family" series. He joined the army as a Private on November 29, 1943 in Los Angeles, California. He was only 37 years old when he died in an accidental fall from a fourth floor window at the Hotel Sutton, which was used as Army barracks. His last credited film, "The Adventures of Mark Twain" (1944), was labeled by the critics as "corny". However, it was released on VHS tape in 1998.
