Willis Bouchey

Biography

Date of Birth 24 May 1907, Vernon, Michigan, USA Date of Death 26 August 1977, Burbank, California, USA Birth Name Willis Ben Bouchey Mini Biography Willis Bouchey appeared in almost 150 movies and television shows over a 30-year period from 1951 to 1979. He was one of those wonderful character actors who would be a crooked judge in one film and a humorous cavalry officer in another. He appeared in many of John Ford's movies as well as James Stewart's films. His longevity resulted, in part, due to his professionalism and acting ability. He always provided a fine performance no matter how small or insignificant the role. IMDb Mini Biography By: vjohnson@eticomm.net Mini Biography American character actor primarily of pompous or officious types, long a favorite supporting player for John Ford. Bouchey was born in or near Vernon, Michigan but raised by his mother and stepfather in the state of Washington. He entered films in 1951 at the age of 44 and quickly became a familiar (if unnameable) fixture in movies and television. He died in 1977. IMDb Mini Biography By: Jim Beaver Trivia In The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), he delivers the memorable last line: "Nothing's too good for the man who shot Liberty Valance.". While some sources refer to an active career on Broadway before Bouchey entered films, the Internet Broadway Database (IBDB) lists no productions in which he appeared.
