Danny Borzage

Biography

American small-part player, a member of John Ford's stock company. The younger brother of director Frank Borzage and the older brother of assistant director Lew Borzage, he became a beloved figure on film sets, not so much for his acting as for his personality and his musicianship. An accomplished accordionist, he was a staple on Ford's sets, where he provided mood music before and sometimes during scenes. He played the accordion at Ford's funeral. A native of Utah, he died in 1976 and was survived by his wife Melba and their son Donald.
