With roles in everything from Stanley Kubrick's crime caper "The Killing" to the political psychodrama "The Manchurian Candidate," James Edwards helped pave the way for African-American actors in Hollywood. His prolific career spanned over 20 years in both film and television, and even included several stints as a staff writer on popular TV anthologies such as "Fireside Theater." One of Edwards' earliest roles as young WWII soldier Peter Moss in the 1949 drama "Home of the Brave" became his most enduring; other notable performances came in the critically acclaimed biopic "Patton," and the Korean War drama "The Steel Helmet."
