biography

Born in Dracut, Massachusetts on March 20, 1914, character actor Wendell Corey was born into a family in which his father was a minister. Coming of age in the depths of the Great Depression, Corey began training as an actor in summer stock. He continued his stage training in the Federal Theatre Project, an offshoot of the Works Progress Administration, in the 1930s. In 1942, Corey finally made it to Broadway in the comedy Comes the Revelation, but the show closed after just a few performances. Throughout the war years, Corey continued to act in several Broadway shows, and his performance in the comedy Dream Girl during the 1946 season netted him a contract with director/producer Hal Wallis, who had begun his own production company a couple of years earlier and was scouting for talent. An excellent actor but not exactly a leading man type, Corey excelled in character roles in some of the best film noir of the late 1940s and 1950s, including Sorry, Wrong Number (1948; with Barbara Stanwyck, Burt Lancaster, and John Bromfield), I Walk Alone (1948; with fellow Hal Wallis discoveries Lizabeth Scott, Kirk Douglas, and Burt Lancaster), and Rear Window (1954; with James Stewart, Grace Kelly, and Raymond Burr).

later years

As his film career began to slow down in the early 1960s, Corey focused his attentions on politics. Corey was the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences from 1961 to 1963 and was a member of the board of directors of the Screen Actors Guild. Corey ran for and won a seat on the Santa Monica City Council, and in the mid 1960s he ran for California's Republican congressional seat but lost. During this period, Corey worked mostly in television, making guest appearances on such programs as Burke's Law, Branded, and Perry Mason. After his political defeat, Corey went back into films, but these were very low-budget affairs, unlike the quality films in which he had once starred. His later films include Agent for H.A.R.M. (1966; with Peter Mark Richman); Women of the Prehistoric Planet (1966; with Merry Anders and John Agar), both of which aired on Mystery Science Theater 3000; and Ted V. Mikels' The Astro-Zombies (1969; with Tura Santana), which was his last release. In his final film appearances, Corey's alcoholism is readily apparent, and sadly he often slurred his lines in Agent for H.A.R.M. and The Astro-Zombies. Nonetheless, he continued to serve on the Santa Monica City Council until his death from an alcohol-related illness on November 8, 1968, at the age of 54. Corey was survived by his wife, Alice, a son, and three daughters.
