Broderick Crawford’s Biography
Crawford was born in Philadelphia by Lester Crawford and Helen Broderick, both actors of vaudeville, a genre of entertainment very popular in North America during the early twentieth century; his mother had a decent film career in the genre Screwball comedy.
From an early age he accompanied his parents on tour, until he followed them on the stage, acting with them. But with the decline of the vaudeville, Crawford decided to enter the Harvard college, but left him soon to start working in the holds of ships in the docks of New York.
He returned to acting on the radio and in 1934 made his Broadway debut in the show She Loves Me Not. He recovered some success in 1937 when he played Lenny in Men and Rats, a theatrical adaptation of the novel of the same name by the Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck. Soon after he moved to Hollywood without being able to get the role in the film adaptation of the same work. However, he made his big screen debut in the comedy Tiranna Delicious (1937) and in the following years acted as a supporting actor in important adventure films such as Beau Geste (1939) and La taverna dei sette sinati (1940).
In 1949 Crawford was cast to play the role of Willie Stark in the film All the King’s Men. This role (which Sean Penn will resume in the remake of 2006), allowed Crawford to get an Academy Award for Best Actor.
The 1950s gave the actor another cinematic success, thanks to the interpretation of the rough Harry Brock in Nata yesterday, alongside Judy Holliday and William Holden. His role will be taken up by John Goodman in the 1993 remake.
Despite these successes, Crawford’s career faltered due to the difficulty encountered by the actor in finding roles suited to his style of acting and his corpulent physique, and also because of his sometimes grumpy personality.
His participation in an Italian-French production directed by Federico Fellini, Il binone, dates back to 1955, in which Crawford characterized with great skill the character of Augusto Rocca, the protagonist of the film, dubbed by actor Arnoldo Foa. François Truffaut declared in this regard “… but I, who had all the time at my disposal, would have gladly stayed for hours to see Broderick Crawford die”.
Also in 1955 the well-known television producer Frederick Ziv offered Crawford the lead role in the police series The Street Patrol. The telefilm, which had a remarkable success during the programming period (1955-1959), saw the actor engaged in the role of the gruff and zealous commander Dan Matthews.
In the following years Crawford continued to divide between the television and the big screen. He shot several films including The Buried Gun (1956) with Glenn Ford, Sunset of an Idol (1966) with Stephen Boyd and A Little Love Story (1979), where he played himself.
In a cameo from 1977, in the TV series CHiPs, the role of Chief Dan Matthews, a historical character portrayed in the Highway Patrol series, was sarcastically resumed. Also noteworthy for the singularity of the event is his participation as a special guest at the NBC network comedy program Saturday Night Live, in an episode of the 1977 season.
Broderick Crawford continued to act almost until his death on April 26, 1986 in Rancho Mirage, California. He is one of the few actors who have two stars in the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame: one for the film career at 6901 Hollywood Boulevard, and the other for the television career at 6734 of the same avenue.
