Biography: Beginning on radio in his native Chicago at age six ("Portia Faces Life", Skippy Homeier (ne George Vincent Homeier) came to films at age 14 with Tomorrow, the World! (1944), originally a 1943 Broadway drama, taking his role as a callous Nazi youth successfully to the screen the following year. He remained a troublesome, unsympathetic teen throughout the 40s and, when he grew into adult roles (now billed as Skip Homeier or G.V. Homeier), he continued at a menacing pace in westerns and crime dramas, notably Halls of Montezuma (1951), Cry Vengeance (1954) and Stranger at My Door (1956). His film career bogged down as an adult and he turned more and more to TV parts, playing good guys at times as a change of pace.
