His massive shoulders and hooded eyes made him a reliable heavy

George Coulouris

George Coulouris (October 1, 1903 - April 25, 1989).

George Alexander Coulouris was an English film and stage actor. As an actor he was quite adept at playing villains, particularly wealthy businessmen, but he was just as suitable at playing nobler roles. A member of Orson Welles' famed Mercury Theater players, he appeared in such films as Citizen Kane (1941), For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943), Papillon (1973), and Murder on the Orient Express (1974). The film that established him as an interesting and reliable heavy, with his massive shoulders and hooded eyes, was Watch on the Rhine (1943).

He appears with Donna Reed and Alan Ladd in Beyond Glory (1948) in the role of Lew Proctor, the lawyer for an influential cadet who is forced to leave the United States Military Academy at West Point.
