Van Heflin

Van Heflin Headshot

Actor

Birth Date: December 13, 1910

Death Date: July 23, 1971

Birth Place: Walters, Oklahoma

Rugged, versatile leading man with a flair for playing charming, opportunistic types. "The Prowler" (1951) and "3:10 to Yuma" (1957) show him at two extremes: as a crooked, ruthless cop and an honest, innocent farmer out to help the law. Perhaps best remembered as the resolute rancher in "Shane" (1953), he later appeared in character roles, such as the bomb-toting passenger aboard "Airport" (1970)
