Biography

Gruff, gravelly-voiced former professional football player and successful radio sportscaster and news announcer who, though he made his Broadway stage debut in 1935, only won notice when he electrified Broadway with his comic portrayal of Harry Brock, an overbearing, uncouth junk tycoon who gets his well-deserved comeuppance in the long-running 1946 comedy hit, "Born Yesterday". Turning down the plum role in the 1950 film version (which proved film heavy Broderick Crawford to be an equally deft comic performer), Douglas nonetheless signed with 20th Century-Fox and made an impressive film debut in Joseph Mankiewicz's "A Letter to Three Wives" (1948), once again playing a big, blustering, slightly doltish tycoon.
