Robert Mitchum

Age: 79
film and television actor

The heavy-lidded, commanding actor is best remembered for his tough-guy roles in Westerns, war films and films noir. Mitchum once said he would play just about any part, and he did, usually to perfection. In the late 1940s, Mitchum was known as a bad boy, having been arrested for“conspiracy to possess marijuana.” His films include The Story of G.I. Joe, Out of the Past, The Night of the Hunter and Cape Fear.
