Authoritative leading man David Brian had previously been a musical comedy performer when signed by Warner Bros. in 1949. His first role was as the unbilled "host" of the 1949 reissue of Warners' 1935 G-Men, but within a few months he was starring opposite Joan Crawford ([[Feature~V17724~Flamingo Road~flamingoroad]]) and Bette Davis ([[Feature~V5285~Beyond the Forest~beyondtheforest]]). Loaned out to MGM, Brian delivered one of his finest performances as the civil libertarian lawyer in [[Feature~V25257~Intruder in the Dust~intruderinthedust]] (1949). In films until the early 1970s, Brian was also a prominent TV actor, starring in the syndicated Mr. District Attorney (1954-1955, repeating his radio role) and appearing as villainous billionaire Arthur Maitland in the Christopher George series [[Feature~V126433~The Immortal~theimmortal]] (1970). David Brian was the husband of actress Adrian Booth, aka Lorna Gray. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
