Date of Birth : Dec 9th 1911

Broderick Crawford was the typical example of “overnight” success on Hollywood — the 1949 release of All the King’s Men turned him into one of the most popular “character” leads in Hollywood, a successor to Wallace Beery and a model for such unconventional leading men to come as Ernest Borgnine. His “overnight” success, however, involved more than a decade of work in routine supporting roles in more than 20 movies, before he was ever considered as much more than a supporting player. Crawford was born into a performing family — both of his maternal grandparents, William Broderick and Emma Kraus, were opera singers, and his mother, Helen Broderick, was a Broadway and screen actress, while his father, Lester Crawford, was a vaudeville performer.
