Underrated character actor,
- Craig R.
I remember Brian Donlevy from various villainous character roles he played in some topnotch Paramount films in the 30's and 40's.And also the lead role he played superbly in The Great McGinty. But very recently,I viewed the 1939 classic gem 'Beau Geste'. The cast of this film was filled with wonderful actors including G. Cooper,Robert Preston,Ray Milland and the great J.Carroll Naish.However,in my opinion,Donlevy stole the show with his superb characterization of the sadistic Sargeant Markoff.After seeing this fine performance,I have a renewed respect for Donlevy's talent.He is a truly underrated fine actor.
A Major Star During World War 11
Bian played a lot of villans before the war but, as the war approached he went into major roles- especially in demand in World War 12. Wake Island, They Wanted Wings, Command Decision are some of his combat films. This genuine heartlander was actually from Ireland. films benefitted by his Irish charm. After the war, his career dimmned a little and at the end he was in b films.Brian did Dangerous Assignment on radio and tv. Amd today he might be best remembered as Steve Mitchell the heroic guy from Dangerous Assignment.
Quite an Irishman.
Brian is best remembered for Beau Geste, The great Mcginty, the radio and tv series, Dangerous Assignment as steve mitchell.Under contract for a number of years at paramount. More poular during World war 2 as younger actors were in the service.He continued to perform up to his death.He played as hero or villian and could do comedy.Preston Sturges showcased him best.
