Richard Widmark's Film Noir Face


Widmark's almost 'oriental' features have a sculptural quality that was made for film noir. Light and shadow do amazing things with his face.

When Widmark played Tommy Udo in "Kiss of Death" he purposely shaved off his eyebrows to appear more skeletal and menacing. Widmark could play the hero well but he did have a great villainous face for Film Noir like you said.
