A versatile character actor and occasional lead, the sandyhaired, pleasant-looking Kennedy alternated between stage and screen, winning a Tony as the troubled young Biff in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, and earning five Academy Award nominations during his long and generally distinguished screen career. Kennedy, reportedly discovered by James Cagney while acting on stage in Los Angeles, first hit movie screens playing Cagney’s artistic kid brother in City for Conquest (1940) … The late 1940s and 1950s saw him turn out an impressive body of work, including Champion (1949, picking up his first Oscar nomination in support of Kirk Douglas) and The Glass Menagerie (1950)…
