James Gregory
(Jesse Bard)
 James Gregory has a theory about life being too short to do
anyting other than what one enjoys doing, which is why he
chose the theatre as a career. Since he has been able to
make a good living in his chosen profession, he must be
acclaimed as a wise philosopher. He admits, however, that
before he made his debut in "Key Largo" with Paul Muni, he
had spent years in Wall Street, as a private secretary in the
industrial world, sold white goods in a department store,
peddled real estate and worked as a caddy until he almost
qualified as a pro golfer. Because his grandfather was a
"master carpenter" at the old D.W. Griffith studios in
Mamaroneck, New York, near his hometown New Rochelle,
James became interested in acting by watching the filming of
scenarios. Although he likes motion pictures and has
appeared in several, including "Frogmen," "Naked City" and
"Port of New York," most of his acting assignments have
been in the legitimate theatre and television. His last
appearances on Broadway were as the Colonel in "Fragile
Fox" and as the uncompromising policeman in "Dead
Pigeon." Except for a three and a half year interruption for
service in the Navy and Fleet Marine Force in the Pacific, he
has been steadily employed as an actor since 1939.
Featured roles on Broadway were in "Death of a Salesman,"
"Dream Girl," "All My Sons," and others. Video has starred
him in "Robert Montgomery Presents," "Studio One," "Philco
TV Playhouse," etc. He is a member of The International
Barbershop Singing Society, S.P.E.B.S.Q.S.A., Inc.
