An attractive if undistinguished secondary male lead, Charles Bradstreet had a career of a little more than a half-decade in Hollywood, and might well be totally forgotten today, but for a role that he only took very reluctantly. Born in Maine, he had no real aspirations as an actor, but chanced to be asked to read at an audition to which he'd accompanied his own brother. From that beginning, which propelled him into the leading role of the play in question, he got his first taste of professional acting. An abortive entre to Columbia Pictures was followed by a short stint at MGM and then a period freelancing from 1947 onward. That year, he took the role of Professor Stevens, the handsome (if somewhat bland) scientist who finds himself in the midst of a nest of monsters in Abbott And Costello Meet Frankenstein -- it wasn't a movie he had much faith in (as indicated by some aspects of his performance in the finished film), but it is probably the only movie for which he is remembered. Bradstreet worked in a handful of subsequent films and then left the business, preferring to make his living in real estate. He passed away in 2004 at the age of 86.
