John Ireland’s Biography


His debut dates back to 1935 in an aquatic show, where he performed as a professional swimmer. He then moved on to acting, playing Shakespearean roles on Broadway and tour companies, until his film debut with the role of G.I. Windy in the war film Salerno, now X (1945) by Lewis Milestone. Signed by producer Darryl F. Zanuck, Ireland quickly became one of the most interesting post-war American characters, an interpreter of cynical and violent characters.

His personality and his “hard” somatic features allowed him supporting roles in famous westerns such as John Ford’s Infernal Challenge (1946) and Howard Hawks’s The Red River (1948), both celebrating the myth of the West, and over time become two classics of the genre. His vigorous interpretation of the reporter Jack Burden in the film All the Men of the King (1949) also earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

John Ireland specialized in roles of coriaceous villain in countless westerns of the fifties, such as La valle della vendetta (1951), alongside Burt Lancaster, Sfida all’O.K. Corral (1957), by John Sturges, again with Lancaster and Kirk Douglas. In collaboration with the operator Lee Garmes, the actor produced and directed The territory of the outlaws (1953), venturing into the direction two years later with the interesting B-movie The Fast and the Furious (1955), written by Roger Corman, in which he played an innocent man on the run, accused of a murder he did not commit.

After the role of the gladiator Crixus in Spartacus (1960) by Stanley Kubrick, Ireland’s career began to decline. The actor intensified his activity as a television interpreter, in which he had already experimented since the fifties, participating in numerous popular series among the public, among whom Alfred Hitchcock presents (1962), The Cheaters (39 episodes from 1960 to 1962) , Rawhide (11 episodes from 1960 to 1965), Gunsmoke (1966-1967) and Bonanza (1967).

In the second half of the sixties, the actor gave new impetus to his film career, first with the role of the left Steve Marek in The Eyes of Others (1965), a small low-cost horror classic, directed by specialist William Castle. Ireland then moved to Italy, where he became a star of the Spaghetti-western genre in films such as Odio per haio (1967) by Domenico Paolella, and Una pistola per cento coffins (1968), by Umberto Lenzi. Also important are the participations of the actor in two films belonging to the Italian style of yellow, namely Femmine insaziabili (1969), by Alberto De Martino, and Una sull’altra (1969), by Lucio Fulci, as well as in co-production International Salon Kitty (1975) directed by Tinto Brass.

From the first marriage with Elaine Sheldon (1940-1949), Ireland had two sons, John and Peter. In 1949 he remarried with the actress Joanne Dru, from whom he divorced in 1957. Married in a third marriage in 1962 with Daphne Myrick Cameron, she had a daughter, Daphne.
