Keenan Wynn

Biografi

Juli 27, 1916

Actor

Keturunan yang berbakat dari keluarga bisnis pertunjukan, Ayah Keenan Wynn adalah 'burlesque' hebat ' dan 'badut televisi' Ed Wynn ' sementara kakek dari ibunya, Frank Keenan, mendapat penghargaan di sisi lain dari tangga hiburan sebagai sebuah tragedi. Ibu Hilda Keenan juga seorang aktris kecil. Lahir di New York City pada tanggal 27 Juli 1916, selama puncak popularitas Broadway ayahnya, Keenan tumbuh di pangkuan kemewahan dan dididik di Akademi Militer St. John. Awalnya dia mengikuti langkah dramatis kakeknya yang bertentangan dengan sepatu badut ayahnya, membuat busur profesional Nya di Maine dengan pemain Lakewood dalam produksi "aksen Pemuda". Pada tahun 1937, dia di Broadway dengan "Hitch your Wagon"dalam dua peran kecil. Selama menjalankan pertunjukan, dia bertemu istri pertama, aktris Evie Wynn Johnson, yang menjadi pelatih, manajer dan penasihat. Pada saat yang sama, ia mulai mendapatkan mantap Pekerjaan radio.
Melalui bantuan dan dorongan dari istrinya dan kontaknya, dia akhirnya bisa menjalankan tes layar untuk baik abad ke-20-Fox dan MGM. Ditolak oleh studio pertama, ia menandatangani dengan Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer pada skala gaji agak rendah sebesar $ 300 seminggu. Di MGM, Keenan menjadi pemain karakter utilitarian, mahir bermain hampir semua hal diserahkan padanya. Balding, nyaman tapi dengan fitur unik yang sebenarnya, dia membuat debutnya yang belum di suatu tempat Aku akan menemukan Anda (1942), dan pergi untuk bermain sekantong barang kasar, biasanya dalam gaya relief komik. Dia adalah agen Gene Kelly di bagi saya dan Gal saya (1942), seorang gangster hilang Angel (1943), seorang teman tentara Robert Walker di sini, swasta Hargrove (1945) dan sekuel Nya; seorang pemabuk di restoran (Kathburn tipsy / beau Tish dalam The 1945) di The 1946 (tanpa pasangan editor tahun 1946); Terlebih lagi, dia diberi tugas "B" pada materi yang lebih rendah seperti sensasi Brasil (1946), tanpa cuti, tanpa cinta (1946) dan keajaiban Muli (1946).
Dua anak lahir Keenan dan Hawa selama perang tapi dia dan Hawa segera terpisah. Pada tahun 1946, pasangan mengajukan surat cerai dengan keterlibatan pihak ketiga dalam bentuk teman dekat keluarga dan MGM star Van Johnson. Eve melanjutkan untuk menikah Johnson hari setelah perceraian pasangan itu ditetapkan pada tahun 1947. Pernikahan kedua Keenan tahun 1949 dengan Betty Jane Butler bertahan hanya empat tahun.
Dia mengundurkan diri dengan Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer pada tahun pasca perang dan berani sebagai salah satu pemain karakter terkuat Hollywood. Kelemahan adalah peran-perannya sebagai tantangan yang berkualitas tinggi, peran yang mungkin membuatnya menuju puncak hirarki MGM. Peran mencuri pemandangan yang datang padanya adalah hal yang tidak menyenangkan, bintang burlesque paling penting dalam Clark Gable starrer the huckster (1947); musik jazz reedman-nya dalam lagu The Thin Man (1947); dan teman Lagu Untuk Douglas di My Dear Secretary Sekretaris (1948). Dia juga diberikan kuota nya vulgar, bicara langsung penjahat untuk bermain, baik secara sederhana dan dramatis, dalam film-film seperti itu sebagai cinta yang kasar (1950), Jenis Wanita (1951) dan, khususnya, nya Runyonesque di musik klasik Kiss Me Kate (1953). Berpartner dengan James Whitmore, render mereka dari "sikat up Shakespeare anda" adalah salah satu dari banyak highlights komedi. Ia juga membagikan sejumlah jenis prajurit pemberani seperti Fagan pemberani (1952), Battle Circus (1953), kode dua (1953) dan pria petarung wanita (1954).
Setelah meninggalkan Metro-Goldwyn - Mayer pada tahun 1954, ia mengatur pandangannya di televisi, tapi daya tarik film (dan tetap bekerja) tidak pernah berhenti. Pada tahun 1956, Keenan akhirnya muncul bersama Bapa Ed Wynn, yang mengalami seluncur karir yang besar dan juga mengalami kerusakan saraf. Keenan, yang pada suatu waktu telah pergi ke panjang besar untuk melepaskan dirinya dari bayangan terkenal ayahnya, sekarang menjadi instrumen dorongan. Dia menyarankan elder Wynn mengabaikan kebiasaan lama-nya mendukung karakter yang serius bertindak. Ayahnya setuju untuk mencoba dan muncul dalam peran kecil dalam film tapi mereka tidak punya adegan bersama. Resikonya berhasil. Tahun berikutnya keduanya sedang dipuji untuk pekerjaan superlatif mereka bersama-sama dalam drama tv produksi Playhouse 90: Requiem untuk kelas berat (1956).
Disney mempekerjakan baik ayah dan anak pada tahun 1960-an dengan mustachioed Keenan sebagai penjahat yang sangat mengagumkan di film komedi studio ini The Absent Minded Professor (1961) dan sekuel, Putra Flubber (1963). Caranya l belajar untuk berhenti mengkhawatirkan dan cinta bom (1964), balapan hebat (1965), Viva Max (1969) Dan Pembantu Cantik semua berturut-turut (1971), bersama dengan standard, jika tidak selalu stand-out, Pekerjaan televisi. Conman yang menjengkelkan dan licik dan kroni-kroninya yang tidak enak, tidak pernah kehilangan permintaan mereka. Pada tahun 1975, ia mendapatkan nominasi Penghargaan Emmy Award untuk peran tamunya Pada Wanita Polisi (1974).
Meskipun tahun-tahun berikutnya dirusak oleh kasus parah tinnitus (dering di telinga yang blok keluar suara eksterior), ia mampu untuk melanjutkan bertindak sampai akhir. Salah satu peran terakhirnya adalah sebagai reguler di serial televisi pendek kantor polisi terakhir (1986). Sons Ned Wynn ("Edmund") dan Tracy Keenan Wynn menjadi penulis sukses dalam bisnis. Pada tanggal 14 Oktober 1986, Keenan Wynn meninggal karena kanker pankreas, pada usia 70 tahun dan selamat oleh istri ketiga Sharley Jean Hudson, yang memiliki tiga anak perempuan oleh Dia: Cucunya Jessica Keenan Wynn (putri Edwina) juga seorang penyanyi dan aktris Broadway.
