Broderick Crawford (December 9, 1911 – April 26, 1986).


William Broderick Crawford was an American stage, film, radio, and television actor often cast in tough-guy roles and best known for his Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning portrayal of Willie Stark in All the King's Men (1949) and for his starring role as Dan Mathews in the television series Highway Patrol (1955–1959).


Donna Reed appeared with him in Scandal Sheet (1952). Variety's appraisal of the film was mildly favorable and Donna's performance is judged "credible."
