Actor Michael Rennie:
Born: 1909 Bradford, England
Died: 1971 Harrogate, England
Michael Rennie was born on Aug. 25, 1909, in Bradford, England. He started
work as a salesman but got into acting as an extra in British films in the
1930's. Moving to the USA in the 1940's he soon developed into a
reasonably big star. Never destined for huge success, he nevertheless was
kept very busy in movies during the fifies, with The Day the Earth Stood
Still as his major role.
Films were fewer in the sixties and he turned to television, landing a
starring role as Harry Lime in 'The Third Man'. He also appeared in such
shows as; The Man from U.N.C.L.E., (1964 and 1967), I Spy (1965), Lost in
Space, (1965) Laya (1967) The Invaders (1967), The Innocent (1967). He
also played The Sandman in the Batman TV series.
Although the film roles declined to a certain extent, Michael
continued acting right up to his death at the age of 62 in 1971.
