Robertson Hare
No. 25 in a series of 50 from Player's Navy Cut Cigarettes
Born in London on December 17th, 1891, J. Robertson Hare had no relations on the stage, and his parents were a little startled when at the age of nineteen he announced his decision of taking up a stage career. A few years later he was playing the title role of Grumpy on tour. Then came the War, but after the Armistice, he resumed his professional career, and was offered a role in one of the Aldwych farces in which he made his name. He is married to Rene Vivian, formerly an actress, and they have one daughter, Diana, aged ten. His latest films are A Cup of Kindness and Are You a Mason?
