Richard Venture


Born - 11 November 1923, New York City, USA
Died - 19 December 2017

Diffident, round-faced, brown-haired American character actor, often seen in roles of somewhat fussy authority. After theatrical experience, it was in more mature roles that he broke into TV in the 1950s, notably a cameo in the feature-length Seven Against the Wall (1958), which was later shown in cinemas. He was in his forties, however, before starting a cinema career: Dark Intruder (1965), The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds (1972), Man on a Swing (1974), All the President's Men (1976), Airport '77 (1977), The Betsy (1978), The Onion Field (1979), Being There (1979), The Hunter (1980), Missing (1982), Heartbreak Ridge (1986), Navy SEALS (1990), Scent of a Woman (1992), Imaginary Crimes (1994), Courage Under Fire (1996), Red Corner (1997) and Series 7: The Contenders (2001), his last. Three times married and divorced.
