George Hamilton's public persona has perhaps overshadowed a career that encompasses the stage, television and dozens of films. While still a teenager, Hamilton won a plum role in Vincente Minnelli's Home From The Hill. The role captured the attention of the public and launched a long and successful career. Hamilton has also been seen in Eight Heads in a Duffel Bag, Once Upon A Crime, the latest Crocodile Dundee film and Doc Hollywood. Hamilton has produced three of his starring pictures: Evil Knievel, Zorro, the Gay Blade and Love at First Bite. He most recently was seen on the big screen in Woody Allen's The Hollywood Ending and in OffKey.
His exuberant outlook on life was on display when he hosted the nationally syndicated daily talk show, The George & Alana Show, which ran for a year, and he has appeared in over 50 movies and numerous TV movies and shows, including London's BBC production of Ernest Hemingway's A Farewell To Arms and Birds of a Feather, and ABC'S Dynasty. In 1998 he co-starred with Jenny McCarthy in the series Jenny. He has also been seen in Barnum, Hart to Hart and Vanished.
Proving his versatility, Hamilton has appeared in stage productions including Barefoot In The Park, Gigi, and The Philadelphia Story. He starred on stage in the A.R. Gurney award winning play, Love Letters, for a limited engagement in San Francisco last year.
He had his first book published in September 1998, Life's Little Pleasures.A dedicated fitness buff, his day begins with a workout, sit-ups and push-ups, and after taking care of business affairs, a game of tennis or golf. Winter weekends, weather permitting, find him on the ski slopes and in the summer, he turns to swimming and riding.
And, as always, there is Hamilton's time in the sun. Certainly the nations, if not the world's, most ardent worshiper of the golden orb, Hamilton has parlayed his dedication into a line of Skin Care Products and the George Hamilton Sun Care. He also has "Hamilton's Cigars", a signature line of cigars, designed for connoisseurs.
