Richard Widmark’s Biography

Richard Widmark grew up in the town of Princeton, Illinois. Because of the profession of his father, commercial representative, the young Richard resided in different populations during his childhood and adolescence. Finally, he went to Lake Forest University, where he would study interpretation. He debuted on the radio, in 1938, in the serial Aunt Jenny’s Real Life Stories. He started working on Broadway, in 1943, with the work Kiss and Tell. He was declared incapacitated during World War II, due to a perforated eardrum.

His magnificent performance in this play was much appreciated by the director Henry Hathaway, who had him to make it debut in the cinema with The Kiss of Death, in 1947. Widmark played the role of killer gangster Tommy Udo. The scene that will go down in the history of this film is the one in which Udo pushes an old woman in a wheelchair (role played by Mildred Dunnock) downstairs. The kiss of death was a resounding success and Widmark became a star overnight. In this way, the actor would get a seven-year contract with 20th Century Fox. He also won the award for best Golden Globes revelation, and was nominated for an Oscar for best supporting actor.

In the decade of the 60 it would carry out some of its more well-known titles, like the Alamo (1960), of John Wayne; Victors or losers (1961), by Stanley Kramer; Two ride together (1961), by John Ford or Homicidal Brigade (1968), directed by Don Siegel. Precisely the character of this latest film, Detective Madigan, also triumph in television during the 70s. One of the most notable films is the Incident Bedford (1965) where he starred with Sidney Poitier a war film of intense emotional tension.
