Robert Mitchum (1917 – 1997)

Born: Robert Charles Durman Mitchum
August 6, 1917

Robert MitchumA one-time professional boxer, Robert Mitchum appeared in over 100 films in a career that spanned six decades. He is perhaps best known for his early work in film noir, including Out of the Past (1947), heralded by many as the quintessential production of this genre. Likewise, his chilling portrayal of the serial killer Reverend Harry Powell in The Night of the Hunter (1955) is perhaps his most memorable character. Nominated only once for Best Supporting Actor, Mitchum never won an Oscar, but did appear in four films from the 1001 list, including: Out of the Past (1947), Angel Face (1952), The Night of the Hunter (1955), and Dead Man (1995).
