Neil Hamilton was a dashing leading man during an epoch of sensuous silent films but much better known to contemporary generations as the silver-haired and slightly befuddled police commissioner on television's "Batman."
By the time sound was melded with moving pictures in 1928, Hamilton had become Paramount's leading male star. By then his feature credits had passed the two-dozen mark. He made more than 80 films during his career.
His final film was "Which Way to the Front?" in 1970.
