Mini Biography

Irish-born Dan O’Herlihy didn’t follow in his father’s footsteps, forsaking the life span of the architect towards the operating profession. The high, distinguished-looking college or university graduate boasted a wealthy, resonant tone of voice, which allowed him to very easily find function in radio takes on, as well around the stage. He 1st came to notice as a little part actor using the Gate and Abbey Theater Players, sometimes placing his architectural skills to make use of as a arranged designer. His 1st leading role is at Sean O’Casey’s play ‘Crimson Roses for Me’ in 1944. During one of is own shows in Dublin, he was noticed by the movie director Carol Reed and solid as an IRA terrorist in Odd Guy Out (1947). This, and another London-produced film, Hungry Hill (1947), led to good crucial notices , prompting another genial filmmaker, Orson Welles, to solid O’Herlihy in the part of Macduff for his Mercury/Republic creation of Macbeth (1948). While this business was definately not successful, O’Herlihy’s durable, bearded appearance for the Scottish play sufficiently impressed Luis Buñuel to solid him in the titular part of Robinson Crusoe (1954). Before arrival of ‘Friday’ – the only other featured character – this definitive version of Daniel Defoe’s shipwrecked 17th century mariner was a tour-de-force one guy show, a compelling, wordless portrayal of agonising solitude. Nevertheless, because the Mexican creation was considered only a B-movie in Hollywood, O’Herlihy was pressured to invest a few of his personal money to really have the film exhibited in LA. While he was compensated with an Oscar nomination, few deserving job offers arrived his method. For the rest of the 10 years, he worked well under short-term agreements as a personality actor (frequently billed as ‘Daniel O’Herlihy’) for Common and 20th Hundred years Fox, typically solid in outfit dramas just like the Dark Shield of Falworth (1954), The Crimson Mask (1955) as well as the Virgin Queen (1955). When film functions became scarce, he branched out into anthology tv, eventually learning to be a very much sought-after guest celebrity on popular primary time displays just like the Untouchables (1959), Bonanza (1959) and THE PERSON from U.N.C.L.E. (1964). Focus on radio displays, like ‘Johnny Buck’, ‘Suspense’ and ‘Lux Radio Theater’, also continuing to supply him with a reliable income source. From your mid-1960’s, he was afforded several better film opportunities: first, inside a memorable dual part as the sinister, voyeuristic Dr. Caligari, as well as the good looking psychiatrist dealing with repressed mental individual Jane Lindstrom (Glynis Johns), in Robert Bloch’s off-beat psycho-thriller, The Cupboard of Caligari (1962). Subsequently, giving a truly mesmerizing efficiency, as an anguished Atmosphere Power general contemplating purchases to drop a hydrogen bomb over NY, in Sidney Lumet’s gripping anti-war crisis Fail-Safe (1964). He was also, among afterwards big screen performances, among the many name stars in the star-studded armed forces epic Waterloo (1970) (as Napoleon’s Marshal Ney); unrecognisable in make-up being a reptilian alien in the ‘Superstar Wars’ clone THE FINAL Starfighter (1984); as irredeemable villains in Halloween III: Period from the Witch (1982) and RoboCop (1987); so that as the inscrutable Andrew Packard in Twin Peaks (1990) in TV. O’Herlihy continuing to alternative film use functioning on stage in LA with the Abbey Movie theater. He passed away in Feb 2005 at age 85, departing his papers towards the treatment of the College or university University Dublin, from where he previously obtained his level in architecture in the past in 1945.
