John Hubbard was an American actor who was born in East Chicago, Indiana on 14 April fy|1914. As a teenager, he took acting lessons at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago, where he attracted attention and movie offers. Hubbard was signed by Paramount in fy|1937, but his contract was sold to MGM a year later. At MGM, Hubbard played a leading role opposite Luise Rainer in fy|1938's "Dramatic School", which lead to a four-picture deal with Hal Roach, who used Hubbard in comedies such as "The Housekeeper's Daughter" (fy|1939), "Road Show" (fy|1940) and "Turnabout" (fy|1940). Hubbard did a dramatic turn in "Whispering Footsteps" in fy|1943, but returned to comedy afterwards, usually in supporting roles.

Hubbard's film career was interrupted between fy|1944 and fy|1947 by military service in World War II. He continued to make films afterwards, but after 1950 he turned up more often on television. As a supporting actor, he played "Brown" in "The Mickey Rooney Show" (12 episodes), "Bill Bronson" in "My Little Margie" (4 episodes), "Col. U. Charles Barker" in the military comedy "Don't Call Me Charlie" (18 episodes) and "Ted Gaynor" in "Family Affair" (8 episodes), but most of his television appearances were in one-off roles.

Between acting roles, Hubbard worked as an automobile salesman and the manager of a restaurant. He retired from acting in fy|1974 after a character role in "Herbie Rides Again", although he made one more appearance in a made-for-television movie in 1980.

Hubbard died in Camarillo, California on 6 November fy|1988. [IMDB [http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0399192/bio John Hubbard bio] ] [All Movie [http://www.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=2:33681~T1 John Hubbard - Biography] ]
