Stuart Whitman ACTOR


Stuart Maxwell Whitman, born February 1, 1928, was an American actor most noted for his sensitive face and rugged build. He was born in San Francisco, California, but moved around a lot. After high school graduation, he enlisted in the Army Corps of Engineers for three years, and then enrolled at the Los Angeles City College and the Los Angeles Academy of Dramatic Arts. His debut was in an uncredited role in “When Worlds Collide” (1951). He continued playing bit parts like an officer in “One Minute to Zero” (1952), a cattle buyer in “Barbed Wire” (1952), and a sergeant in “The Veils of Bagdad” (1953). Not until 1960 did the actor land a leading role, when he starred in “Murder, Inc.”.

One year later, in 1961, Whitman reached stardom when he was nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award for his role as a child molester in “Mark”. Sadly, the actor did not win. However, in the same year he also starred with John Wayne in the westernerThe Comancheros”. The actor continued appearing in films as the lead, as well as in supporting roles. Movies he did include “Francis of Assisi” (1961), “Rio Conchos” (1964), “Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines or How I Flew From London to Paris in 25 hours 11 minutes” (1965), “An American Dream” (1972), “Shatter” (1974), and “The White Buffalo” (1977).

During his career in the motion pictures, he additionally made himself known on television in series like “Highway Patrol” (1956-57) and the western themed, “Cimarron Strip” (1967-68), which was wildly popular. However, after he finished filming the latter, Whitman found himself taking leads in lower budgeted independent features like the bigamist sheriff in “Crazy Mama” (1975) and a heroic firefighter in “Oil” (1976). By 1980, he was still active in Hollywood though, playing smaller parts in movies such as “Butterfly” (1982) and “Deadly Intruder” (1985), as well as leads in “The Treasure of the Amazon” (1985) and “Bersaglio sull’autostrada” (1988). When the ‘90s came, Whitman was pretty much only a supporting character in various films like “Lightening in a Bottle” (1993), “Improper Conduct” (1994), and “Second Chances” (1998), which was his very final motion picture.

Throughout his career, Whitman became more apparent on television, although in his nearly fifty year long run he appeared in over ninety films compared to the eighty something different TV series he performed in. The actor’s last job was in the television movie “The President’s Man” in 2000. For his involvement in the western genre, he received a Golden Boot, as well as a 1962 Western Heritage Bronze Award. In 1998, for his work in the motion picture industry, Whitman was also bequeathed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
