William Bendix - rock on appreciation thread !

Recommended Posts

Seems like every movie I have decided to watch lately..Lifeboat, Dark Corner, there is William Bendix sneaking up on me

I really enjoy his work, I first saw him in Hold that Ghost with Abbott and Costello....now I have seen him in several films...The Glass Key is so far I think his best but Lifeboat is also really good...

Dark Corner I cant get into at..but good old Mr Bendix is tremendous as a heavy

He lived a rather short life..

Here is to you William Bendix..

All I have to say is----LIFEBOAT!!! One of his absolute best.


I also love him in Macao, Guadalcanal Diary, Wake Island. He is actually really good in everything, but I really like him in film noir and the war movies.



He rules! There needs to be a William Bendix "what a character" if there is not one all ready. There should also be a William Bendix day or night of his films.

One of Bendix's best roles was in "The Blue Dahlia". Bendix and star Alan Ladd were said to be good friends off screen as well, but something happened to cause a rift, though I'm not sure what.


I also enjoy "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Cour"t, which, now that I think of it, was a sort of "road movie" with Bing Crosby and Sir Cedric Hardwicke. Now, William Bendix's hair was decidedly weird in that movie.
