Certainly one of the most attractive leading men in Hollywood with his soulful brown eyes, tidy, thick moustache, great physique, and natural poise, Billy Dee Williams was a significant star throughout the 1970s, but his performing career goes back to 1947 when he debuted on the Broadway stage opposite German actress Lotte Lenya in the play The Firebrand of Florence. It had been Williams’ mother, an elevator operator in the Lyceum Theater where the play was produced, who brought him before the producers after she discovered that they needed a kid. As a teenager, Williams studied drama in the prestigious High School of Music and Art in New York; he also studied in the National Academy of Fine Arts and then at the Harlem Actors Workshop where he was tutored by Sidney Poitier. As an adult, he returned to Broadway, but failed to make his feature film debut until he landed a substantial supporting role in The Last Angry Man (1959). It might be a decade before Williams starred in a different movie.
Williams was also especially memorable as the district attorney in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989). Through the ’90s, Williams’ career slowed, but also for a few television movies in 1993, his appearances became sporadic.
