Paris-born George Breakston moved to the U.S. when he was six. As a child actor, Breakston got in on the ground floor of the Los Angeles radio industry. In films, he played the young Pip in the 1934 Great Expectations, and that same year played the sickliest of the Wiggs children in Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch and the boy with the ailing bus-passenger mother in It Happened One Night. In the late 1930s, Breakston was seen in the recurring role of Breezy in MGM's Andy Hardy series. Upon reaching adulthood, Breakston retired from acting to become a producer/director. He moved to Kenya, where he set up his own production company, turning out several African-themed films (Urubu, Golden Ivory) and such TV series as African Patrol and Adventures of a Jungle Boy. George Breakston went on to produce and direct films in Europe and Japan before returning to his "home town" of Paris.
