      Joseph Cotten

      Joseph Cotten

      Highest Rated: 100% Shadow of a Doubt (1943)

      Lowest Rated: 12% The Oscar (1966)

      Birthday: May 15, 1905

      Birthplace: Petersburg, Virginia, USA

      Quietly intense, highly talented member of Orson Welles' Mercury Theater, a former drama critic who went to Hollywood with the director to act (as a drama critic) in "Citizen Kane" (1941) and stayed to enjoy success on screen, TV and stage alike over the next four decades. Tall, wavy-haired and gentlemanly, with a trace of a Southern drawl, Cotten developed great versatility during his 1930s stage work which would serve him well in one of the most impressive strings of performances any Hollywood actor achieved in the 1940s.
