Actor. Dick Purcell was a good-natured, athletic leading man in the Regis Toomey/Lyle Talbot mold, so it seemed natural that he'd end up at Toomey's and Talbot's mutual stamping grounds of Warner Bros. For four years, Purcell was the uncrowned king of Warners' B-picture unit. After several handsome but unmemorable "hero" assignments, Purcell demonstrated a breezy gift for comedy as movie studio functionary Mackley Q. He has the distinction of being the only man to play Captain America on the silver screen.
