Arthur Kennedy’s Biography

Unmistakable face of classic American cinema, Arthur Kennedy was playing Broadway when he was spotted by a Warner Brothers talent scout. He landed in Hollywood, debuted on the big screen in the film The City of Sin (1940), playing the part of the brother of the protagonist James Cagney. During the forties he was employed in a long series of minor characters, proving a credible and effective performer, in films like A Bullet for Roy (1941), The Story of General Custer (1941), Arcipelago in Flames (1943).

In the following decade he confirmed himself as one of the most intense and gifted actors of the time, acting as co-stars of the major Hollywood stars, like Robert Taylor in The Mountain of the Seven Hawks (1951), Robert Mitchum in The reckless (1952), Humphrey Bogart in Desperate Hours (1955), Tony Curtis in The Great River Corsairs (1956), Frank Sinatra in Someone (1958), Rock Hudson in The Captain of the South Seas (1958).

The versatility allowed Kennedy to also play villain roles, which in the first instance inspire a confidence that is then denied by the facts, as in the two westerns in which he joined James Stewart, where the river descends (1952 ), in which Anthony Mann entrusted him with the role of a cynical and brilliant killer, and The Man of Laramie (1955), in which Kennedy reconfirmed the type of insinuating character of which it is bad to trust, interpreting an apparently intact ranch head at the beginning, but that turns out to be a cold killer. It was equally effective with the characters of ordinary men, sometimes cynical and vindictive, sometimes desperate and melancholy. His performance in Victory over Darkness (1951), in the role of a veteran attempting to reconstruct his own existence and in the western Rancho Notorious (1952) by Fritz Lang, in which he played a rancher thirsty for revenge.

It was Edgar G. Ulmer who offered Kennedy one of his most successful roles, that of the outlaw Santiago, protagonist of a path that leads him to the final repentance, in the western Mexican Brothers (1955), considered one of the best films by Ulmer and characterized by a slow pace and a poetic and philosophical atmosphere about the facts of life.

Kennedy was nominated four times for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for The Big Champion (1949), The Defendant Must Die (1955), The Peyton Sinners (1957), all directed by Mark Robson , and Someone will come (1958) by Vincente Minnelli, without ever winning it. Even his only Oscar nomination as best actor for Victory over Darkness (1951), still by Robson, did not succeed.

Kennedy also continued his theatrical career, dividing his time between film sets and the stage. He was honored with a Tony Award for his performance in the drama Death of a salesman by Arthur Miller, who engaged him on Broadway scenes from February 1949 to November 1950.

Since the 1960s its popularity declined. He still had some good chances such as in the western The Great Path (1964), in which he gave a colorful interpretation of the character of Doc Holliday, but progressively turned to offers of work from abroad, often in mediocre productions. He was also very active in Italy during the seventies, interpreting several police films as well as the horror L’antichristo (1974) by Alberto De Martino.
