  • Square-jawed American actor Mitchell Ryan was born in Cincinnati and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. During a 1951 Navy hitch, Ryan was assigned to a special services entertainment unit; he liked the experience so much that he decided to pursue acting as a civilian. He went to New York, accepting bit roles in over two dozen plays; he then moved on to leading roles at the Barter Theatre in Abington, Virginia. More New York work (under the direction of Joseph Papp) followed, and finally Ryan attained a small recurring role on the TV serial Dark Shadows (1966-70). A stage appearance with Irene Papas in Euripedes attracted critical attention and better jobs, including a supporting part in Monte Walsh (1970), Ryan's first film. Jack Webb utilized Ryan quite often in the '70s in his series O'Hara United States Treasury, then hired the actor as one of the four leads of the 1973 series Chase. In 1976 producers top-billed Ryan on the TV series Executive Suite. While the series didn't last, Mitchell Ryan subsequently received solid roles on such TV series as The Chisholms (1980) and High Performance (1983) and in such made-for-TV films as Flesh & Blood (1979) and Margaret Bourke-White (1989).

QUOTES FROM Mitchell Ryan CHARACTERS

Dr. Wynn
Your work is finished now.
Dr. Sam Loomis
I thought Michael was a monster, but you...
Dr. Wynn
(Loomis gets knocked out, Wynn rises) - Leave him. It's his office now.

Dr. Sam Loomis
Michael? It's over! It's finally over. It's all over.
Dr. Wynn
Michael. Michael's gone! It's your game now Doctor Loomis!
Dr. Sam Loomis
Good God! Terrence, come in.
Dr. Wynn
Good grace, what a night! Not so much as a sign for five miles on that road.
Dr. Sam Loomis
That's the beauty of the countryside...I thrive on it.
Dr. Sam Loomis
That's the beauty of the countryside. I thrive on it.
Dr. Wynn
God, you look good Sam.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Ah, I feel great! I had surgery, plastic surgery; skin grafts. It cost a fortune, but at least I don't frighten people anymore.
Dr. Wynn
Well don't tell me that the revered Rasputin of Smithsgrove has grown complacent in his old age! I won't believe that for a second.
Dr. Wynn
Danny, kill for him.
Dr. Wynn
Spirits and powers of the flame attend and witness this ritual. Bear our gifts to Thorn. Open us to the path of Darkness. By these runes transform us. Let the hammer descend upon the Chosen One to whom we offer this sacrifice of Innocent Blood. And then Danny, your journey begins. Kill for him!
Dr. Wynn
Michael, your final sacrifice.
Kara Strode
Michael, you can make him stop it. Don't kill the baby. You know whose baby it is, don't you?
Dr. Wynn
(shouts) - Michael!
Dr. Wynn
(shouts) Michael!
Kara Strode
The baby is yours. Isn't it, Michael?
Dr. Wynn
I was getting worried Sam, I was afraid you wouldn't make it.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Why now?
Dr. Wynn
Because you were the first one to see it. You recognized its power; evil. Pure, uncorrupted, ancient...

Dr. Sam Loomis
You are a mad man.
Dr. Wynn
I have my plans for this baby. Jamie's baby, will be the dawn of a new age. And I'm asking you to join me.
Dr. Sam Loomis
It was Jamie Lloyd.
Dr. Wynn
That was six years ago Sam. She died with him in that explosion, you know that.
Dr. Sam Loomis
I've wanted to believe it. But I've felt Michael's presence, behind these walls, just like all those years ago. Plotting, staring...Staring...waiting for some signal. I can't go through this again, not alone. Please, as my colleague, as my friend. Help me.

Dr. Wynn
Well, guess who after 32 years is finally relinquishing his duties as chief administrator of Smithsgrove?
Dr. Sam Loomis
Dear God. You don't mean you're...
Dr. Wynn
Retiring? I came by to give you the news myself.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Well, I wish you will Terrence.
Dr. Wynn
To old friends, to retirement, to new beginnings.
Dr. Wynn
I'd like you to come back to Smith's Grove.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Dr. Wynn, you know it is not wise to play Halloween pranks.
Dr. Wynn
About time Doctor Loomis. Welcome to your fate. The time has come for you to know the truth. The time has come for you to join us.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Why now?
Dr. Wynn
After Jamie escapes last night, I knew she would come to you. And I knew you would lead us to her baby, her very special baby. I needed her, just as I need you now. It's your destiny Sam, it lives inside you. It always has, you know that don't you?
Dr. Sam Loomis
You are...a mad man.
Dr. Sam Loomis
You are a mad man.
Dr. Wynn
It's no prank; you're the one I've chosen Sam. I want you to come back.
Dr. Sam Loomis
After my stroke six years ago they practically had to hold a pistol to my head to get me to retire. But things are different now- I'm different. I've buried the ghosts; I've buried them in this manuscript. I don't want to practice medicine anymore.
Dr. Wynn
Look around you Sam, madness everywhere; famine, war, a great plague. These are signs we must restore balance to the natural order of things. We merely provide the means.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Michael?
Dr. Wynn
We've given him the power, the gift of thorn. I am its deliverer. I follow it, act as its guardian! I protect Michael, watch over him. And now it's time for another. Now it's time for you, Doctor Loomis.
Tommy Doyle
Untie her!
Dr. Wynn
Do as he says! Do it. You should join us, you have talented.
