Character actor David Brian got his start as a contract player for Warner Brothers Studio in 1949, where he was hired on the recommendation of one of the studio's biggest stars, Joan Crawford. Following his film debut opposite Crawford as corrupt businessman Dan Reynolds in the Southern noir "Flamingo Road," the pair worked together again in the melodrama "The Damned Don't Cry." After his Warner Brothers contract expired in the 1950s, Brian moved into roles on television, even briefly headlining the legal drama "Mr. District Attorney." He went on to appear in many Western productions, including guest spots on the popular shows "Gunsmoke" and "Rawhide."
