William Bendix’s Biography

Bendix was born in Manhattan, New York. As a young man, in the early 1920s, Bendix was in the care of the New York Yankees baseball bats. In 1927 he married Theresa Stefanotti.

Bendix worked as a shopkeeper until the Great Depression, and his film debut took place in 1942. He was a supporting actor in dozens of Hollywood films, usually as a soldier, gangster or detective. It began with interpretations in films of black cinema, including an outstanding action in The Glass Key (1942), in which they worked Brian Donlevy and Veronica Lake. He gained fame after participating in the film by Alfred Hitchcock Lifeboat (1944), in the role of Gus, a wounded and dying sailor. Other well-known roles of Bendix are his performance as baseball player Babe Ruth in The Babe Ruth Story (1948), and as Sir Sagramore in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court (1949), in which he worked with Bing Crosby and in which he participated in the interpretation of the famous song “Busy Doing Nothing”. It was also the waiter Nick in the 1948 version of William Saroyan’s play The Time of Your Life, with James Cagney. Bendix also acted in the theatrical version, but in the role of Krupp (character played in the cinema by Broderick Crawford).

Bendix was also known at that time for his radio work, working as Chester A. Riley in the series The Life Riley between 1944 and 1951. He also starred in the main role in the second television version of the series, which was broadcast from 1953 to 1958 (Jackie Gleason played Riley in a version made in 1949).

In 1958, Bendix played the lead role of The Time Element, a title written by Rod Serling. The Time Element was an adventure about a man who travels to Honolulu in 1941 and tries unsuccessfully to warn of the imminent attack on Pearl Harbor.

In 1960 Bendix starred in 17 episodes of the NBC western series Overland Trail, with the role of Frederick Thomas “Fred” Kelly, superintendent of the Overland Stage Company. Doug McClure, later Trampass on the NBC series The Virginian, was his co-star.
