Personal Quote:

There's a much more friendly atmosphere on a movie set than there is on a Broadway stage. New York stage hands are snobbish and seldom speak to actors. What a difference in Hollywood! Here prop men and cameramen and script girls all feel they're part of the family.

Trivia:

The scar on Macready's right cheek was the result of a car accident during his college days. According to his son Michael Macready, George and some fraternity brothers were riding in a Model T Ford when they hit an icy patch on the road. They struck a telephone pole, and George went through the windshield. His friends could find only one doctor in the vicinity, who happened to be a veterinarian. ... See more »
