Robert Mitchum


Born in 1917 in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Robert Mitchum had a difficult, unstable upbringing, culminating in his arrest for vagrancy at 16. Before marrying his childhood sweetheart in 1940 and having a child, he worked as a nightclub bouncer, an astrologer’s promoter and something called an engine wiper.
Settling down with his wife, he began a steady job at Lockheed Aircraft, but his hobby, acting, soon took over. He played a succession of heavies in small roles before attracting attention in 1945’s The Story of GI Joe. His stardom survived an arrest for marijuana possession in 1948, and he was superbly terrifying in both The Night Of The Hunter (1955) and Cape Fear (1962).
