Johnny Mack Brown Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Sep 1, 1904
  • Died: Nov 14, 1974

Former All-American halfback Johnny Mack Brown was a popular screen cowboy during the 1930s. Already in the public eye for his athletic prowess, [[Performer~P178439~Brown~brown]] was persuaded by a friend to give Hollywood a try after graduating from the University of Alabama. In 1927, the muscular macho man was signed by MGM where he played in a number of leading roles opposite popular actresses such as Garbo, Pickford, and Crawford for several years. But [[Performer~P178439~Brown~brown]] never really found his acting niche until he starred in King Vidor's [[Feature~V85084~Billy the Kid~billythekid]] (1930). From then on he was happily typecast as a cowboy actor, and became a hero to millions of American boys, appearing in over 200 B-grade Westerns over the next two decades. From 1942-50 he was consistently among the screen's ten most popular Western actors. [[Performer~P178439~Brown~brown]] formally retired from movies in 1953 but made occasional return appearances as a "nostalgia" act. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
