George Hamilton with his exceedingly handsome looks and attractive personality, he took a bold chance and moved to Los Angeles in the late 1950s.  Metro Goldwyn Mayer wasted no time putting him in films following some guest appearances on TV. His first film, a lead in Crime & Punishment, USA (1959), was an offbeat, updated adaptation of the Fyodor Dostoevsky novel. He was the recipient of a Golden Globe for "Most Promising Newcomer" as well as being nominated for "Best Foreign Actor" by the British Film Academy (BAFTA). This in turn led to an enviable series of film showcases such as Home from the Hill, All the Fine Young Cannibals, Light in the Piazza and Two Weeks in Another Town.

He performed several roles in numerous films but is best known for MGM films in the 1960s' Where the Boys Are, a coming-of-age romantic comedy in which Hamilton played a smooth Ivy League type. Hamilton made two memorable bio-pics: Your Cheatin' Heart in 1964, in which he portrayed the country-western music legend Hank Williams and in 1971, Evel Knievel, the life story of the motorcycle daredevil. Hamilton was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2009, on his 70th birthday.
