John Howard (born John Richard Cox Jr.) was an American screen and television actor. He made his movie debut in a bit part in Paramount’s One Hour Late (1934) before moving up the Hollywood ladder to featured parts and ultimately landing his own series, the Bulldog Drummond mysteries. Decades later, when offers of work began to slow down, Howard went into teaching.
