Edmond O'Brien (1915-85) made his film debut in 1938, and gradually built a career as a highly regarded (if scene-chewing) supporting actor. He won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in THE BAREFOOT CONTESSA (1954), and was nominated for his role in SEVEN DAYS IN MAY (1964), but perhaps his best remembered performances are in noirs, including A DOUBLE LIFE (1947), WHITE HEAT (1949), D.O.A.(1950), BACKFIRE (1950), THE TURNING POINT (1952), and THE HITCH-HIKER (1953). He was married and divorced from actresses Nancy Kelly and Olga San Juan.
