Glenn langan

Born July 8, 1917 in Denver, Colorado, Thomas Glenn Langan is an American actor and film star. He started his acting career in local repertory companies, but he established his reputation on Broadway in New York City. He made his Broadway debut in 1942 opposite Luise Rainer in a revival of J.M. Barrie's "Kiss for Cinderella" in 1942. His work led to a contract with 20th Century Fox where he took over many of the leading man roles left behind by Hollywood's most popular male stars joining the war effort. He made his credited film debut in "The Return of Doctor X," later receiving the lead role in the film, "Margie," in 1946 and starring alongside Gene Tierney and Vincent Price in "Dragonwyck" that same year. He also appeared with Olivia de Havilland in the "The Snake Pit" in 1948. He also appeared in "Forever Amber" in 1947 and in a updated version of the "Treasure of Monte Cristo" in 1949. However, his career faltered as many of Hollywood's more in-demand leading men returned from military service. Relegated to B-Movie roles, he starred in his most popular role in his career, that of the eponymous character in The Amazing Colossal Man in 1957. He winded down his career with several roles on television, including "The Loretta Young Show," "The Barbara Stanwyck Show," "The Twilight Zone," "Gilligan's Island" and "Hondo." He also starred in "Chisum," but his last role was an uncredited role in "The Andromeda Strain." Afterward, he worked as a successful real estate salesman until he passed away on January 26, 1991. He was survived by his wife of forty years, actress Adele Jergens.
