Sullivan, Barry

Sullivan, Barry
▪ 1995

      U.S. actor (b. Aug. 29, 1912, New York, N.Y.—d. June 6, 1994, Sherman Oaks, Calif.), was a ruggedly handsome leading man who specialized in unsmiling roles, and his dour countenance was featured for more than four decades in thrillers, westerns, dramas, and gangster films. A one-time theatre usher and department store buyer, Sullivan made his Broadway debut in I Want a Policeman (1936). On the silver screen he secured his reputation after turning in a strong performance portraying a psychoanalyst in Lady in the Dark (1944). He returned to Broadway to replace Henry Fonda as the defense attorney in The Caine Mutiny Court Martial and reprised the role for the 1955 television adaptation. Often paired opposite strong-willed women on-screen, Sullivan costarred with Barbara Stanwyck in Jeopardy (1953), The Maverick Queen (1956), and Forty Guns (1957), Bette Davis in Payment on Demand (1951), and Joan Crawford in Queen Bee (1955). Other film credits include The Gangster (1947), The Great Gatsby (1949), The Bad and the Beautiful (1952), Strategic Air Command (1955), and Earthquake (1974). On television Sullivan was a regular on such series as "The Man Called X" (1956), "Harbourmaster" (1957-58), "The Tall Man" (1960-62), and "The Road West" (1966-67).
