Henry Brandon

Acteur né le 08 juin 1912 (décédé à 78 ans)


Henry Brandon was an American character actor in more than one hundred films, known for having portrayed Indian, Arab, Persian, Turkish, Native American, and East Asian roles, usually villains.
Born Heinrich von Kleinbach in Berlin, Germany, his parents emigrated to the United States while he was still an infant. A stage actor, he performed on Broadway and continued to act on stage periodically throughout his acting career. He made his motion picture debut in 1932. His most famous acting roles were as "Chief Cicatrice" in John Ford's The Searchers in 1956 and "Chief Quanah Parker" in Ford's Two Rode Together in 1961.
In 1955, Brandon portrayed Nate Champion, the first casualty of the Johnson County War of Wyoming, in an episode of Jim Davis' syndicated western television series Stories of the Century. A second episode of that series dealing with the Johnson County War focuses on Ella Watson or "Cattle Kate" and her companion, Jim Averill, who were lynched by vigilantes.
In 1940 Brandon appeared in the title role of the famous Republic serial Drums of Fu Manchu. He also played a French army captain in Robert Aldrich's Vera Cruz and "Officer Chaney" in John Carpenter's 1976 film Assault on Precinct 13. Many people will remember him for his role as "Silas Barnaby", the evil character in the Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy 1934 classic Babes in Toyland later retitled March of the Wooden Soldiers. He was also the nasty opera manager who signed Alfalfa to an unbreakable contract singing "The Barber of Seville" in the Little Rascals/Our Gang short Our Gang Follies of 1938. In 1959, he played the role of Gator Joe in "Woman in the River" of the ABC/Warner Brothers crime drama, Bourbon Street Beat. He portrayed the foreign spy Derek in a 1965 two-part episode of CBS's Mister Ed. In the 1960s ABC series The Outer Limits, Brandon played General Crawford in the episode "The Chameleon" starring Robert Duvall.
