An American lead actor and supporting actor, rugged and commanding Glenn Corbett’s background didn’t seem like it would lead to Hollywood stardom. The son of a garage mechanic, Corbett served a hitch in the Navy and later met Judy, the woman who would become his wife, while she was working at a college. With her encouragement Corbett began to get parts in campus theatricals, and it was while he was in one of these that he came to the attention of the powers-that-be at Columbia Pictures, which signed him to a contract.
His film debut was in The Crimson Kimono (1959). That was followed by supporting roles in The Mountain Road (1960) and Man on a String (1960). He eventually got the lead role in William Castle’s suspense thriller, Homicidal (1961), and appeared in the TV series Route 66 (1960). His character in “Route 66” got him attention and he was cast in a new series, The Road West (1966), but that was short-lived.
Corbett was also busy making major theatrical films in the 1970s. He snagged substantial supporting parts in two of John Wayne’s westerns, playing good guy Pat Garrett in Chisum (1970) and one of the gang who kidnaps Wayne’s son in Big Jake (1971), but he took the lead role in Nashville Girl (1976) and Universal’s war epic Midway (1976). Throughout the ’80s Corbett stayed busy with a regular part in the cast of the long-running television series Dallas (1978), up until his death in 1993 of lung cancer.
