Hamilton started his movie profession in 1952 and although he has a significant body of work in movie and television he is, perhaps, most popular for his debonair design and his ideal and everlasting color. Bo Derek wrote in his life story “there was a continuous competition between John [Derek] and George Hamilton as to who was tanner”.
Hamilton’s initial roles were in TV. He showed up on series as “The Veil”, “The Activities of Rin Tin Tin”, “The Donna Reed Show” and “Cimarron City”. His first movie part was a lead “Crime and Punishment U.S.A.” (1959). Although taken in 1958 it was not launched until the following season. However, it was seen by Vincente Minnelli who believed Hamilton would be perfect for young son “Home from the Hill” (1960), a Southeast melodrama with Robert Mitchum. Hamilton was properly cast and the film was well-known. MGM finalized him to a long-term agreement.
A superhit movie came his way in 1979 when Hamilton revealed a style for comedy in Love at First Bite which was the tale of Count Dracula’s desire of a younger Manhattanite design, performed by Susan Saint James. The film involved such moments as Dracula and his cure dance to “I like the Nightlife” at a disco. The film’s box-office achievements designed a reputation increase for Hamilton, who also worked as the producer.
An opportunity for Hamilton came in 1990 when Francis Coppola cast him as the Corleone close relatives lawyers in a much-anticipated movie, The Godfather Part III. For the second time, he represented a killer on the TV sequence Columbo, featuring as the variety of a TV true-crime display in the 1991 display “Caution: Murder Can Be Hazardous to Your Health.” He had formerly been in the 1975 show “A Deadly State of Mind”.
