Biography by Hal Erickson

In films from 1927, British comic actor Gordon Harker had to wait for the advent of sound to take full advantage of his eternal air of cockney belligerence. Perhaps because his cinematic career was launched by director Alfred Hitchcock, Harker seemed to pop up in every other mystery film produced in England between 1930 and 1945, sometimes as intrusive comedy relief, sometimes as a red-herring suspect. Among his more notable film credits were Rome Express (1932), Inspector Hornleigh (1940) and Saloon Bar. Gordon Harker's last film was the 1958 political satire Left, Right and Centre.
