Patrick de Lacy "Pat" Aherne (6 January 1901 – 30 September 1970) was an English film actor.[1] Of Irish descent, he was the son of the architect William de Lacy Aherne, and the elder brother of the actor Brian Aherne. He was married to actress/comedian Renée Houston, with whom he adopted two children (Teri and Trevor) and had two children (Patrick Anthony and Alan Brian). Pat Aherne was a silent screen leading man, who was reduced to playing minor supporting roles after the transition to sound (due to hearing loss). His most notable on-screen appearances after 1930, were in Green Dolphin Street, Rocketship X-M and The Court Jester. He was a champion boxer and was in the first boxing film ever made. Pat was also a motorcycle trick rider and friend of Harley and Davidson.[2]
