Paul Douglas
Birth: Apr. 11, 1907
Philadelphia
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Sep. 11, 1959
Hollywood
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Actor. Burly motion picture figure that made his film debut in the 1949 smash hit "A Letter to Three Wives". He was very popular throughout the 1950s, appearing in several major productions, including "Clash By Night", "Angels in the Outfield", and "Fourteen Hours". Even though he often played brutish and sometimes dimwitted roles, he was a Yale graduate. Married four times unsuccessfully, it was his fifth and final marriage to actress Jan Sterling that was the charm. He was once quoted as saying, "If you swing the bat enough times, you will finally get a hit." He was married to Sterling from 1951 until his death from a sudden heart attack in 1959. (bio by: Shelby)
