Donald Gallaher

Gallaher in 1904, when he was earning $100/week.

Donald Gallaher (June 25, 1895 – August 14, 1961) was an American actor who appeared in 25 films between 1903 and 1949.[1] He also directed five films, including Temple Tower (1930).

Gallaher was born in Quincy, Illinois. After moving to New York City as a child with his mother, he began acting in productions such as A Royal Family. His name is sometimes misspelled "Gallagher".

Gallaher appeared in the silent film The Great Train Robbery (1903), and a bit part in the 23-chapter serial The Million Dollar Mystery (1914). He co-starred with Louis Wolheim and Una Merkel in the two-reeler Love's Old Sweet Song (1923) filmed in Lee De Forest's Phonofilm sound-on-film process.

Later in life, he produced Broadway plays and directed films, including Temple Tower (1930), June First (1931), and The Hot Spot (1931). In 1949, using the name Don Gallagher, he served as narrator of the ABC Television Players, a short-lived dramatic anthology series broadcast from Chicago.
