Biography

Au cinéma, comme second rôle de caractère (parfois non-crédité), Douglas Kennedy contribue entre 1935 et 1968 à cent-dix-huit films américains, dont de nombreux westerns (avec une interruption de 1942 à 1946, étant mobilisé en raison de la Seconde Guerre mondiale).

Mentionnons Les Passagers de la nuit de Delmer Daves (1947, avec Humphrey Bogart et Lauren Bacall), Montana de Ray Enright (1950, avec Errol Flynn et Alexis Smith), La Dernière Caravane de Delmer Daves (1956, avec Richard Widmark et Felicia Farr), ou encore L'Incroyable Homme invisible d'Edgar G. Ulmer (1960, avec Ivan Triesault).

Pour la télévision, il collabore à deux téléfilms diffusés respectivement en 1956 et 1967. Mais surtout, il apparaît dans soixante-dix-neuf séries à partir de 1952, dont Alfred Hitchcock présente (trois épisodes, 1956-1959), Rawhide (trois épisodes, 1959-1965) et La Grande Vallée (23 épisodes, 1965-1969).

Sa dernière série est Hawaï police d'État, dont il tourne trois épisodes à Honolulu. Le troisième est diffusé le 13 mars 1973, près de cinq mois avant sa mort dans la capitale hawaïenne, d'un cancer.
