Dana Andrews

Lowest Rated: 29% Airport 1975 (1974)

Birthday: Jan 1, 1909

Birthplace: Covington County, Mississippi, USA

Solid (sometimes to the point of being wooden), average-Joe leading man of the 1940s who specialized in earnest, embittered and/or disillusioned characters. Having worked as an accountant and a singer, Andrews entered films in the early 40s as a supporting player in Westerns. After portraying the victim of a lynch mob in "The Ox-Bow Incident" (1943), his career took off and he starred in a succession of strong vehicles, often as flawed heroes.
