Bruce Beeby

Actor

Born - 21 October 1921, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Died - 20 October 2013

Stocky, vary dark, saturnine Australian actor who came to England in post-war years and at one time seemed to be third or fourth billed in every other black-and-white 'B' picture going, often cast as policemen. He made nine of them in 1954 alone. But he's best remembered by radio buffs (using his own Australian accent) as the voice of Mitch, Jet Morgan's second-in-command in some of the iconic sci-fi series Journey Into Space. He made his film debut in Australia with Harvest Gold (1945); later English and Australia-set films included Women of Twilight (1952), The Limping Man (1953), The Teckman Mystery (1954), Impulse (1954), The Glass Cage (1955), The Man in the Road (1956), Stranger in Town (1957), The Shiralee (1957), Smiley Gets a Gun (1958), Black Limelight (1959), Escort for Hire (1960), Konga (1961), Pit of Darkness (1961), Serena (1962), It's All Happening (1963), The Devil-Ship Pirates (1964), Plague of the Zombies (1966), em>Hammerhead (1968), Midas Run/A Run on Gold (1969) and Wuthering Heights (1970), his last. He died on the eve of his 92nd birthday.
