The brother of actress Marilyn Brown, Barry Brown was 17 when he made his screen bow in Andy Warhol's Flesh. Brown's breakthrough role was Civil War draft dodger Drew Dixon in the 1972 sleeper Bad Company. His co-star was Jeff Bridges, a close friend whom Brown lionized in an essay written for Danny Peary's 1978 compendium Close-Ups; it was but one of many published works for Brown, who in addition to his acting accomplishments was also a noted film historian. After co-starring as Fred Winterbourne in Peter Bogdanovich's uneven 1974 cinemadaptation of Daisy Miller, Brown slowly drifted away from show business. Barry Brown was 27 when he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
