Dana Andrews
5/30/1977-Hollywood: Dana Andrews, 67, could be collecting Social Security payments, but the long-time star is too busy earning millions in real estate and acting to bother with it. Andrews spends six months a year starring in plays. He manages to squeeze in at least one movie and an occasional television show between business deals. A good old Mississippi boy, son of a Baptist preacher, Andrews has enjoyed a curious career. Although he’s never won an Academy Award, the square jawed star has appeared in three of Hollywood’s most memorable classics: The Oxbow Incident, Laura, and Best Years of Our Lives.

Wiki

Dana Andrews (January 1, 1909 – December 17, 1992) was an American film actor. He was one of Hollywood's major stars of the 1940s, and continued acting, though generally in less prestigious roles, into the 1980s.

He was born Carver Dana Andrews on a farmstead outside Collins, Covington County, Mississippi, the third of nine children of Charles Forrest Andrews, a Baptist minister, and his wife Annis (née Speed). The family subsequently moved to Huntsville, Texas, where his younger siblings (including actor Steve Forrest) were born.

Andrews attended college at Sam Houston State University and also studied business administration in Houston, working briefly as an accountant for Gulf & Western . In 1931, he travelled to Los Angeles, California seeking opportunities as a singer. He worked at various jobs to earn a living, including pumping gas at a filling station in Van Nuys. One of his employers believed in him and paid for his studies in opera and also at the Pasadena Playhouse, a theater and acting school.
