Douglas Dick (born November 20, 1920 in Charleston, West Virginia) is a retired American actor and psychiatrist. He was described by the Internet Movie Database as an "earnest, soulful-looking 'second lead' of post-war filming".


Douglas Dick commence sa carrière d'acteur à l'âge de 26 ans dans de nombreux films et est révélé dans le thriller d'Alfred Hitchcock, La Corde de 1948 où il joue le rôle de Kenneth Lawrence aux côtés de James Stewart et John Dall. Après ce succès, l'acteur enchaîne les rôles au cinéma, de La Demeure des braves en 1949 à La Charge victorieuse en 1951 il reste, en parallèle, associé à la télévision en réalisant quelques apparitions dans des séries comme Mike Hammer en 1958.

Dans les années 1960, il n'apparaît que très peu au cinéma, on le retrouve seulement dans Les Rôdeurs de la plaine en 1960 et fait une apparition dans Le Grand Sam la même année. Ce consacrant uniquement à la télévision, il devient par la suite scénariste pour des séries telles que Jinny de mes rêves en 1967 ou Ma sorcière bien-aimée en 1969. Il ne fera qu'une dernière apparition à la télévision avant la fin de sa carrière dans la saison 4 de Mannix en 1971.

Par la suite, il est devenu psychologue.

Casbah is a musical remake of the 1938 film Algiers, which was in turn an American English-language remake of the 1936 French film Pépé le Moko. The plot, which follows that of the 1938 film rather faithfully, deals with Pépé le Moko (Tony Martin), who leads a gang of jewel thieves in the Casbah of Algiers, where he has exiled himself to escape imprisonment in his native France. Inez (Yvonne De Carlo), his girl friend, is infuriated when Pépé flirts with Gaby (Marta Toren), a French visitor, but Pépé tells her to mind her own business. Detective Slimane (Peter Lorre) is trying to lure Pépé out of the Casbah so he can be jailed. Against Slimane's advice, Police Chief Louvain (Thomas Gomez) captures Pépé in a dragnet, but his followers free him. Inez realizes that Pépé has fallen in love with Gaby and intends to follow her to Europe. Slimane knows the same and uses her as the bait to lure Pépé out of the Casbah.
