Actor Michael Rennie:
Born: 1909 Bradford, England

Michael Rennie was born on Aug. 25, 1909, in Bradford, England. He started work as a
salesman but got into acting as an extra in British films in the 1930's. Moving to
the USA in the 1940's he soon developed into a reasonably big star. Never destined
for huge success, he nevertheless was kept very busy in movies during the fifies,
with The Day the Earth Stood Still as his major role.
Films were fewer in the sixties and he turned to television, landing a starring role
as Harry Lime in 'The Third Man'. He also appeared in such shows as; The Man from
U.N.C.L.E., (1964 and 1967), I Spy (1965), Lost in Space, (1965) Laya (1967) The Invaders
(1967), The Innocent (1967). He also played The Sandman in the Batman TV series.
Although the film roles declined to a certain extent, Michael continued acting right up to
his death at the age of 62 in 1971.
