A popular and talented leading man for five decades, Lloyd Bridges began his career playing gritty men of action in films like "Home of the Brave" (1949) and "High Noon" (1952) and finished it as a madcap player in such slapstick films as "Airplane!" and "Hot Shots!" (1991). Along the way, he became a television star thanks to "Sea Hunt" (syndicated, 1958-1961) and starred in numerous television series and movies. The father of actors Jeff and Beau Bridges and grandfather to Jordan Bridges, he experienced a career upswing in the 1980s thanks to "Airplane!" and worked tirelessly in dramas, comedies and everything in between until his death in 1998. His tenacity, talent and charisma made him a favorite of multiple generations of viewers.
