Born Today in 1909: Robert Ryan

Happy Birthday today to Robert Ryan, a great, solid actor from the good old days.  I remember seeing him first as the stern military officer from The Dirty Dozen (1963).  He's also famous for The Wild Bunch (1969), but lesser known for the fun romp Captain Nemo and the Underwater City (1969) where he played the titular role to great effect.


  1. He was fantastic in the Set-up. If you guys haven't had the opportunity to see it yet, do yourselves a favor and get on that

  2. also check out Billy Budd, his performance is chilling.
