About Alan Hale (1892 – 1950)

Alan Hale was born on February 10, 1892, in Washington, D.C. Before his death on January 22, 1950, Hale spent years entertaining audiences worldwide with his memorable roles. He died from a liver ailment and viral infection.

Alan Hale is the father of Alan Hale Jr., who played the Skipper on "Gilligan's Island" (1964-67).

After Alan Hale's original dream of becoming an Opera singer didn't pan out he decided to settle on acting. Hale's best known role is Little John in both the 1922 and 1938 screen versions of "Robin Hood." He would reprise the role of Little John for his last film, 1950's "Rogues of Sherwood Forest."

Throughout his 40-year career, Alan Hale appeared in hundreds of films and sealed a special place in motion-picture history as the inventor of the folding theater seat. In fact, Hale made quite a little hobby out his penchant for inventing things. We have Hale to thank for the hand fire extinguisher and greaseless potato chips, among other things.
