Lloyd Bridges

Biography

Date of Birth 15 January 1913, San Leandro, California, USA Date of Death 10 March 1998, Los Angeles, California, USA (natural causes) Birth Name Lloyd Vernet Bridges Jr. Height 6' (1.83 m) The star of many land and underwater adventures grew up in various Northern California towns. His father, who was in the hotel business, wanted him to become a lawyer, but young Lloyd's interests turned to acting while at the University of California at Los Angeles. (Dorothy Dean Bridges, Bridges' wife of more than 50 years, was one of his UCLA classmates, and appeared opposite him in a romantic play called "March Hares.") He later worked on the Broadway stage, helped to found an off-Broadway theater, and acted, produced and directed at Green Mans ions, a theater in the Catskills. Bridges made his first films in 1936, and went under contract to Columbia in 1941. Allegations that Bridges had been involved with the Communist Party threatened to derail his career in the early '50s, but he resumed work after an FBI clearance. Making the transition to TV, Bridges became a small screen star of giant proportions by starring in "Sea Hunt" (1958), the country's most successful syndicated show. Trouper Bridges worked right to the end, winning even more new fans with his spoofy portrayals in the "Airplane!" and "Hot Shots!" movies. His father, Lloyd Vernet Bridges Sr., was born 1 May 1887 and died on his 75th birthday, the first of May, 1962. His mother Harriet Evelyn Brown (b. 15 Jan 1893) turned 20 the day Lloyd was born.
