Michael Brandon (born Michael Feldman) is an American actor who resides in London and Los Angeles.


Michael Brandon connaît une enfance difficile au sein d'une famille modeste des quartiers pauvres de la Big Apple. Cantonné dans des rôles modestes de téléfilms américains, il est surtout connu dans les années 1970 pour avoir eu le premier rôle dans le film de Dario Argento, Quatre mouches de velours gris. Il a été marié avec l'actrice Lindsay Wagner, l'actrice qui incarnait le rôle de Super Jaimie.

Ce n'est que dans les années 1980 qu'il connaît la consécration avec son rôle musclé du flic Jim Dempsey dans la série Mission casse-cou. Il y fait la connaissance de sa partenaire Glynis Barber, qu'il épouse quelques années plus tard et avec qui il a eu un enfant, Alexander, le 21 novembre 1992.

Après Mission casse-cou, on retrouve l'acteur pour une mini-série adaptée des romans policiers de James Hadley Chase, ainsi que dans quelques téléfilms et séries.

At Stephen's 21st birthday party he meets a new friend, Jane Wilde. There is a strong attraction between the two and Jane is intrigued by Stephen's talk of stars and the universe, but realises that there is something very wrong with Stephen when he suddenly finds that he is unable to stand up. A stay in hospital results in a horrifying diagnosis. Stephen is suffering from motor neurone disease and doctors don't expect him to survive for more than two years. Stephen returns to Cambridge where the new term has started without him. But he cannot hide from the reality of his condition through work because he can't find a subject for his PhD. While his colleagues throw themselves into academic and college life, Stephen's life seems to have been put on hold. He rejects the help of his supervisor Denis Sciama and sinks into a depression. It is only Stephen's occasional meetings with Jane and her faith in him that seem to keep him afloat. The prevailing theory in cosmology at the time is Steady State, which argues that the universe had no beginning – it has always existed, and always will – and Steady State is dominated by Professor Fred Hoyle, a plain-speaking Yorkshireman, and one of the first science TV pundits. Stephen gets an early glimpse of a paper by Hoyle that is to be presented at a Royal Society lecture.

The movie follows the events and hardships suffered by the nine companies, roughly 550 men, of the United States Army 77th Infantry Division ("Statue of Liberty") that had been completely cut off and surrounded by German forces a short distance away in the Argonne Forest. The force was led by Maj. Charles W. Whittlesey, who was disparagingly described as a "New York lawyer" by his commanders. The battalion was part of what was supposed to be a three-pronged attack through the German lines. The battalion believed another American force was on its right flank and a French force on its left, not knowing that they had both retreated. The battalion lost contact with headquarters. Whittlesey sent several runners to headquarters, but none of them returned. He ended up having to rely on carrier pigeons to communicate. During the siege, American artillery began firing on the German position in the forest as the Americans cheered. However, the artillery began falling on the American line, killing numerous men in friendly fire. Whittlesey sends a pigeon to headquarters with a message saying they were being hit by their own artillery, saying, "For heaven's sake, stop it". The headquarters receives the message and stops firing. Witnessing the incident, the Germans attack the disoriented American force, but they are repelled by the Americans in fierce fighting and retreat back to their trenches.
