Born in Los Angeles, Lon McCallister began appearing in movies at the age of 13. At 20, he appeared in the World War II morale booster Stage Door Canteen, where he played a star struck serviceman with theater actress and producer Katharine Cornell. Later, the young actor had leads in a number of films; he usually played boyish young men from the country. He had the lead as Sparke in the horse-racing tale Home in Indiana, also starring Walter Brennan and Jeanne Crain. Growing only to 5'6" he found it difficult to find roles as an adult. He appeared with Edward G. Robinson in 1947's The Red House and in the same year with Shirley Temple in another horse-racing story, The Story of Seabiscuit.
