Birth Name: Dana Andrews
Birth Place: Collins, Mississippi, USA
Death Place: Orange County, California, USA
Most memorable in urban settings, Andrews successfully teamed up with director Otto Preminger and co-star Gene Tierney for "Laura" (1944) and "Where the Sidewalk Ends" (1950); he was equally superb as the re-adjusting bombardier in "The Best Years of Our Lives" (1946) and as the unflinchingly honest prosecuting attorney in Elia Kazan's "Boomerang!" (1947). With his big-screen career on the wane, Andrews starred in prestige TV showcases in the 50s and headlined a daytime soap opera, "Bright Promise", in the late 60s. Andrews' second wife, Mary Todd, was an actress and his brother, Steve Forrest, an actor.
