Although he won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for "Barefoot Contessa", EO was very underrated as an actor. He was the King of film noir and the complete example of the genre. His performances were always interesting and concentrating. I love his film noir, but he was so real in "7 Days in May", you really thought he was a Senator in Congress. He is a great example for study by any film student. I would like to see TCM have him as celebrity of the month sometime to show his films.
He should have won all acting awards!
Having recently seen Edmond O'Brien in an aged Western film, I was reminded that he was the first actor who left me exhausted at the end of watching any of his films. He went at each role with veracity, energy, stunning "I'm gonna solve or right this problem or die" attitude. He was one of America's top actors, riveting performer who gave his all and totally entertained you. Sorry to know he passed in 1985; I've been looking for him ever sense, or at least, an actor who could excite you as he could, visually laboring through each part, get you pulling for him no matter the role or whether he played a good guy or an evil guy, you were always secretly pulling for him. Mr. O'Brien, I'm still looking. Thanks for the those wonderful hours I spent watching your film performances over the years, although I barely remember the titles, I'll always remember you.

Edmond O' Brien

If there was a list of under rated actors, I am sure Edmond o'Brien would be at the top of the list. With his every man looks, it is easy to identify with the characters that he played. But it is probably just as easy to not appreciate what a fine actor he was. I can't imangine any other actor than Mr. O' Brien in The Bigamist. No other actor could have brought the vulnerbilty and sympathy that Edmond O' Brien brought to it.
