Yeah, from what little I know of him off-screen, he seemed to me to have a lot in common off-screen with Jimmy Cagney, who was also an edgy (but not conventially handsome) kind of guy who seemed like he could command women on screen but was as devoted a husband as you could be off-screen, even turning down Merle Oberon when she tried to seduce him on a WWII tour.
Widmark was married to the same woman steadily through his career, a generous and charitable sort and preferred to stay out of Hollywood except when working.

Beatty and Douglas come across like that because they were sex addicts and had a huge number of affairs. Widmark I don't know much about, doubt he's on their level but he definitely has that thing I'm picking up on!

@Sam Have you noticed how strong he came across sexually with women on screen? I've noticed his bad language and vibe in a few films recently. I get the impression he was a beast between the sheets LOL. I can't think of an actor other than Sean Connery, Warren Beatty or Michael Douglas who comes across quite alike that with women. And Widmark wasn't even good looking!

Rob, add a photo and American actor best remembered for Kiss of Death, Night and the City, Panic in the Streets, No Way Out, Pickup on South Street, The Alamo, Warlock, Judgement at Nuremberg, How the West Was Won, Two Rode Together and Madigan. Two Rode Together is a classic worth mentioning too Sam. Madigan is quite good yup, I was a bit disappointed with another '68 Fonda film I saw recently, The Boston Strangler, it could have been much better. Especially seeing the talent of the director in 10 Rillington Place which IMO is one of the greatest murder thrillers ever made.

Rob, please change to "American actor best remembered for Kiss of Death, Night and the City, Panic in the Streets, No Way Out, Pickup on South Street, The Alamo, Warlock, Judgement at Nuremberg, How the West Was Won and Madigan."

Madigan's kind of an interesting film, he's not a super-heroic but kinda realistic cop in that, while Henry Fonda is second banana as a sympathetic but seriously flawed politican. Widmark generally did look 5'10", could look at times half inch less or maybe quarter inch more.

Mmm, seems a bit shorter in Pickup on South Street...

Looks about right in Warlock, what a great western that is.

I think it is the number. When he stood alongside with James Stuart, he seemed about 12cm shorter than JS.
