Broderick Crawford

Actor | * 12/09/1911 († 74, 04/26/1986) | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (United States of America (USA))
William Broderick Crawford (December 9, 1911 – April 26, 1986) was an American stage, film, radio, and television actor, often cast in tough-guy roles and best known for his Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning portrayal of Willie Stark in All the King's Men (1949) and for his starring role as Dan Matthews in the television series Highway Patrol (1955–1959). Until filming All the King's Men, Crawford's career had been largely limited to "B films" in supporting or character roles. He realized he did not fit the role of a handsome leading man, once describing himself as looking like a "retired pugilist". ()
