This week in 1000 Words' series Hollywood Goes Fishing we feature veteran character actor Wallace Beery. Beery (1885-1949) was an Academy Award winning actor who was in over 250 films during his long four decade career in Hollywood. His brothers William and Noah Beery all were major film actors as well. Wallace was a dedicated angler and one of Hollywood's most noted fishermen. Here he is in a circa 1940 photo with a nice saltwater surf rig.
We profiled Beery once before in a 1931 article -- to read about this interesting actor/fisherman, Click Here.
