Barry Brown Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Apr 19, 1951
  • Died: May 25, 1978

The brother of actress Marilyn Brown, Barry Brown was 17 when he made his screen bow in [[Performer~P115970~Andy Warhol~andywarhol]]'s Flesh. Brown's breakthrough role was Civil War draft dodger Drew Dixon in the 1972 sleeper [[Feature~V3721~Bad Company~badcompany]]. His co-star was [[Performer~P3197~Jeff Bridges~jeffbridges]], a close friend whom Brown lionized in an essay written for Danny Peary's 1978 compendium Close-Ups; it was but one of many published works for Brown, who in addition to his acting accomplishments was also a noted film historian. After co-starring as Fred Winterbourne in [[Performer~P82288~Peter Bogdanovich~peterbogdanovich]]'s uneven 1974 cinemadaptation of [[Feature~V11976~Daisy Miller~daisymiller]], Brown slowly drifted away from show business. Barry Brown was 27 when he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
