Burl Isle Ivanhoe Ives was born June 14, 1909 (Hunt, Illinois, USA)
Ives graduated from the University of East Illinois and some time traveling around the country for a living master of all trades, and then went to New York. In 1940, he announced himself, speaking to CBS radioseriale “Wandering Stranger”.
At the end of this decade, Ives began recording albums. In 1949, he became the leader of the music charts with the song “Lavender Blue”. His debut work in film has become Western “Smoky” (1946), then he has starred in the role of a cute cousin in pastoral Disney film “So sweet to my heart” (1948). Elia Kazan helped the actor to rise to a higher level by removing him as Sheriff Sam in “East of Eden” (1955). Ives appeared before the audience in the form of cruel and tyrannical patriarch in the film adaptation of Eugene O’Neill’s “Desire Under the Elms” (1958) and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” (1958) Tennessee Williams. Later, the role of the big uncle began to write specifically for Ives.
This was followed by work in the epic western, William Wyler’s “The Big Country” (1958), for which he was awarded the “Oscar” for Best Supporting Actor. Nicholas Ray invited the actor to “Wind over the plains” (1958) on the role of a free and strong, but the doomed man, then his cruel villain in the “Day of outlaws” (1959). All these illustrate the role of the multi-talent Ives. Recent work by the actor’s roles were tough and fearless trainer in “white dog” Sam Fuller (1982) and the sheriff in the melodrama “Two Moon Junction” (1988).
He died in 1995 (Anacortes, WA, USA).
