Eddie Acuff ACTOR


Eddie Acuff was born on June 3rd, 1903 in Caruthersville, Missouri with the birth name Edward DeKalb Acuff.  He was an American actor who became most well known for his role portraying the postman, Mr. Beasley in the "Blondie" film series such as, "Blondie's Big Dea" (1949) and "Blondie's Secret" (1948) among others.  
His interest in the entertainment industry stemmed from his uncle who would perform on showboats along the Mississippi River.  In the early 1930's, he began gaining experience as a stage actor and also had the opportunity to perform on Broadway in such productions as, "The Dark Hour", "Heat Lightning" and "Yellow Jack".
Soon he began to work in the film industry and over the course of his career he would add over 250 film roles to his resume and would only appear in one television series.  He never limited himself to portraying one specific type of character as he would be cast in any roles ranging from a cowboy, to a bus driver to a mailman.
Some of his more well known film roles are, "The Petrified Forest" (1936) starring Humphrey Bogart, Bette Davis, Leslie Howard and Dick Foran, "They Drive By Night" (1940) starring George Raft, Ann Sheridan, Humphrey Bogart and Ida Lupino, "High Sierra" (1941) starring Humphrey Bogart and Ida Lupino, "The Flying Serpent" (1946) starring George Zucco, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" (1947) starring Danny Kaye, "Johnny Allegro" (1949) starring George Raft, Nina Foch and Will Geer and "Smokey Mountain Melody" (1948) co-starring Guinn 'Big Boy' Williams and Jock Mahoney.  The only television series he ever appeared on was, "The Lone Ranger" in 1950.
Eddie Acuff passed away on December 17th, 1956 in Hollywood, California after suffering from a heart attack.  His remains are buried at the North Hollywood Pierce Brothers Valhalla Memorial Park.
