Although Don Devlin began his career with intention of becoming an actor, his talents ultimately lay in the fields of writing and producing. Born in the Bronx in 1930, Devlin joined the Greenwich Village Dramatic Workshop after serving in the army from 1947-48. After numerous guest appearances on shows such as Rin Tin Tin during the 1950s and early '60s, Devlin expanded his career by co-writing as well as acting in Anatomy of a Psycho (1961). Eventually eschewing acting altogether, Devlin moved exclusively into producing in the late '60s and throughout the '70s, producing such films as Loving (1970) and The Witches of Eastwick (1987). Don Devlin's son Dean kept the business in the family as well. In addition to acting in the Don Devlin-produced My Bodyguard, Dean Devlin became heir to the throne of the Hollywood blockbuster, producing such crowd-pleasers as Stargate and Independence Day. On December 11, 2000, Don Devlin died of lung cancer in Los Angeles. He was 70.
