American actor Brad Davis set out for a show-business life after winning a music talent contest in his teens. After studying at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Davis worked in a number of New York stage productions. On TV, he was one of many cast members of the 1977 miniseries Roots, in the 1981 TV movie A Rumor of War he played an American soldier in Vietnam, he essayed the title role in 1985's Robert Kennedy and His Times, and played the classic paranoid Lt. Cmdr. Queeg in Robert Altman's 1988 production of The Caine Mutiny Court Martial. In films, Davis' stardom was secured by his intense portrayal of Billy, a young American imprisoned in Turkey for drug charges in Midnight Express (1978); he also shone in a brief but memorable appearance in Chariots of Fire (1981), and in the lead of Querelle (1983), Rainer Werner Fassbinder's adaptation of a once-censorable Jean Genet novel. Davis died of AIDS at the age of 42.
