  (Redirected from Jack Harvey (actor and director))

John Joseph Harvey, also known as Jack Harvey (September 16, 1881 in Cleveland, Ohio - November 9, 1954 in Los Angeles, California) was an American film actor, director and screenwriter, noted for his short films of the silent period. Among his directed films are A Dog's Love (1914) (the first of many collaborations with Shep, a well-trained Collie of the Thanhouser Company), When Fate Rebelled (1915), Fairy Fern Seed (1915), Kaiser's Finish (1918) and his last film No Babies Wanted (1928), accredited as John J. Harvey. He continued to act, but most of his roles after the 1920s were very minor and uncredited in films such as Cardinal Richelieu (1935) and Anchors Aweigh (1945). He also continued to write for films until his death in 1954, the last of which was City Beneath the Sea (1953).[1]
