Early life[edit] William Conrad
William Conrad
(also known as John William Conrad) was born John William Cann, Jr., on September 27, 1920, in Louisville, Kentucky.[1][2] His parents, John William Cann and Ida Mae Upchurch Cann, owned a movie theatre,[3][2] and Conrad grew up watching movies. The family moved to Southern California
when Conrad was in high school. He majored in drama and literature at Fullerton College, in Orange County, California, and began his career as an announcer, writer, and director for Los Angeles
Los Angeles
radio station KMPC.[4] Conrad served as a fighter pilot in World War II. On the day he was commissioned in 1943 at Luke Field, he married June Nelson (1920–1977) of Los Angeles.[5] He left the United States
United States
Army Air Corps with the rank of captain and as a producer-director of the Armed Forces Radio Service.[6] Career[edit] Radio[edit] William Conrad
William Conrad
estimated that he played more than 7,500 roles during his radio career.[7] At KMPC, the 22-year-old Conrad produced and acted in The Hermit's Cave (circa 1940–44), the Los Angeles incarnation of a popular syndicated horror anthology series created at WJR
Detroit.[8]:319 He was among the supporting cast for the espionage drama The Man Called X (1944–48); the syndicated dramatic anthology Favorite Story (1946–49); the adventure dramas The Count of Monte Cristo (Mutual 1947–48), The Voyage of the Scarlet Queen (Mutual 1947–48), The Green Lama ( CBS
1949), and Nightbeat ( NBC
1950–52); Romance (1950); Hollywood
Star Playhouse (1950–53); Errol Flynn's The Modern Adventures of Casanova (Mutual 1952); and Cathy and Elliott Lewis's On Stage ( CBS
1953–54).[8]:431, 244, 181, 706, 299, 507, 584, 326, 467, 512 Conrad was the voice of Escape (1947–1954), a high-adventure radio series.[8]:232 He played Warchek, a menacing policeman, in Johnny Modero: Pier 23 (Mutual 1947), a detective series starring Jack Webb, and was in the cast of Webb's crime drama Pete Kelly's Blues (NBC 1951). He played newspaper editor Walter Burns opposite Dick Powell's reporter Hildy Johnson in the ABC radio drama The Front Page (1948). He was Dave the Dude in the syndicated drama anthology series The Damon Runyon Theater (1948); Lt. Dundy in the NBC
radio series The Adventures of Sam Spade (1949–50); boss to government special agent Douglas Fairbanks Jr.
Douglas Fairbanks Jr.
in The Silent Men ( NBC
1951); and a New Orleans bartender in the NBC
adventure drama Jason and the Golden Fleece (1952–53).[8]:374, 541, 273, 189, 12, 615, 368 Most prominently, Conrad's deep, resonant voice was heard in the role of Marshal Matt Dillon on CBS
Radio's gritty Western series Gunsmoke
(April 26, 1952 – June 18, 1961). The producers originally rejected him for the part because of his ubiquitous presence on so many radio dramas and the familiarity of his voice, but his impressive audition could not be dismissed, and he became the obvious choice for the role. Conrad voiced Dillon for the show's nine-year run, and he wrote the June 1953 episode "Sundown."[9] When Gunsmoke
was adapted for television in 1955, executives at CBS
did not cast Conrad or his radio costars despite a campaign to get them to change their minds.[10] His other credits include Suspense, Lux Radio Theater, and Fibber McGee and Molly. In "The Wax Works", a 1956 episode of Suspense, Conrad performed every part.[7] Because of his CBS Radio
CBS Radio
contract, he sometimes appeared on shows on other networks under the pseudonym "Julius Krelboyne". In January 1956, Conrad was the announcer on the debut broadcast of The CBS Radio
CBS Radio
Workshop, a two-part adaptation of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World which Huxley himself narrated. "On the air, The CBS
Radio Workshop was a lightning rod for ideas," wrote radio historian John Dunning, who cites Conrad's "tour de force" performances in the subsequent broadcasts "The Legend of Jimmy Blue Eyes" (March 23, 1956) and "A Matter of Logic" (June 1, 1956).[8]:144–145 Conrad directed and narrated the 1957 episode "Epitaphs", an adaptation of Edgar Lee Masters's poetry volume Spoon River Anthology.[11] "And '1489 Words' (Feb. 10, 1957) remains a favorite of many, a powerful Conrad performance proving that one picture is not necessarily worth a thousand words," Dunning concluded. "A lovely way to end a day, a decade, or an era."[8]:145 Film[edit]

The killers (Charles McGraw, William Conrad) in The Killers, Conrad's film debut

The Maltese Falcon sat on a bookshelf in Conrad's California
home until his death in 1994

As an actor in feature films, Conrad was often cast as a threatening figure. His most notable role may be the first for which he was credited, as one of the gunmen sent to eliminate Burt Lancaster
Burt Lancaster
in The Killers (1946). Conrad also appeared in Body and Soul (1947), Sorry, Wrong Number (1948), Joan of Arc (1948), and The Naked Jungle
The Naked Jungle
(1954). In 1961, Conrad moved to the production side of the film business, producing and directing for Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.
film studio.[12] His most notable film was Brainstorm (1965), a latter-day film noir that has come to be regarded as "a minor masterpiece of the 1960s"[13] and "the final, essential entry in that long line of films noirs that begins at the end of the Second World War."[14] Conrad was the executive producer of Countdown (1968), a science-fiction thriller starring James Caan
James Caan
and Robert Duvall
Robert Duvall
that was the major studio feature début of director Robert Altman. Conrad narrated the documentary Design For Disaster, produced by the Los Angeles
Los Angeles
City Fire Department, about the November 1961 Bel Air wildfire that gutted several neighborhoods, at the time the worst conflagration in Los Angeles
Los Angeles
history. As a token of appreciation from Jack L. Warner, head of Warner Bros., Conrad received one of the two original lead-metal falcon statues used in the classic film The Maltese Falcon (1941). The falcon sat on a bookshelf in Conrad's house from the 1960s. Standing 11.5 in (29.2 cm) high and weighing 45 lb (20.4 kg), the figurine had been slashed during the making of the film by Sydney Greenstreet's character Kasper Gutman, leaving deep cuts in its bronze patina. After Conrad's death, the statue was consigned by his widow Tippy Conrad to Christie's, which estimated it would bring $30,000 to $50,000 at auction. In December 1994, Christie's
sold the falcon for $398,500.[15] In 1996, the purchaser, Ronald Winston of Harry Winston, Inc., resold the prop to an unknown European collector "at an enormous profit"—for as much as $1 million.[16] Late in life, Conrad narrated the opening and closing scenes of the 1991 Bruce Willis
Bruce Willis
feature film Hudson Hawk. Television[edit] Voice[edit] As "Bill Conrad", he narrated the animated Rocky and Bullwinkle
Rocky and Bullwinkle
series from 1959 to 1964. He narrated This Man Dawson, a 33-episode syndicated crime drama starring Keith Andes
Keith Andes
in the 1959–1960 television season, and then became the familiar voice narrating The Fugitive, starring David Janssen, on ABC television from 1963 to 1967. He could also be heard introducing Count Basie's Orchestra and Frank Sinatra on Sinatra's 1966 Live at the Sands album. Conrad intoned a rhyming narration heard over the credits of the 1970 John Wayne
John Wayne
film Western Chisum. His voice is heard in the Clio Award-winning 1971 public-service announcement about pollution featuring Iron Eyes Cody, created for Earth Day
Earth Day
by Keep America Beautiful and the Ad Council.[17] From 1973 to 1978, Conrad narrated the TV nature program, The Wild, Wild World of Animals. Also during the 1970s, he appeared in and narrated a number of episodes for ABC's American Sportsman, and in the CBS
documentary, The Lost Treasure of the Concepcion. He later narrated The Making of Star Wars
The Making of Star Wars
(1977), the 1978 World Series
1978 World Series
U.S.-baseball highlight film, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979), and The Rebels (1979). He performed the role of Denethor
in the 1980 animated TV version of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Return of the King. His other voice work included narration for The Highwayman. Directing[edit] With Sam Peckinpah
Sam Peckinpah
Conrad directed episodes of NBC's Klondike in the 1960–1961 season. Other credits as a director include episodes of The Rifleman, Bat Masterson, Route 66, Have Gun – Will Travel, 77 Sunset Strip, and Ripcord, as well as ABC's crime drama Target: The Corruptors!. In 1963, Conrad directed Jeffrey Hunter
Jeffrey Hunter
in what became a 26-week Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.
Western television series, Temple Houston. On orders from then-studio boss Jack Webb, Temple Houston episodes were put together in two or three days each, something previously thought impossible in television production. Work began on August 7, 1963, with the initial airing set for September 19. Jimmy Lydon, a former child actor, adult actor, and a producer with Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.
at the time, recalled that Webb told the staff, "Fellas, I just sold Temple Houston. We gotta be on the air in four weeks, we can't use the pilot, we have no scripts, no nothing — do it!"[18] Lydon recalled the team having worked around the clock to get Temple Houston on the air. Co-producer William Conrad directed six episodes, two scripts simultaneously on two different soundstages at Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.
"We bicycled Jeff (Hunter) and (Jack) Elam between the two companies, and Bill shot 'em both in four-and-a-half days. Two complete one-hour shows!" said Lydon.[18] Acting[edit]

From 1971 to 1976 he starred in television detective series Cannon, which was broadcast on CBS. While starring in the show, he weighed 230 pounds (104 kg), and ballooned to 260 pounds (118 kg) or more. "I heard that Weight Watchers
Weight Watchers
had banned its members from watching the show, but it turned out to be a gag," Conrad said in 1973. "The publicist for Weight Watchers
Weight Watchers
did call and suggest that I have lunch with their president. I said sure – if I could pick the restaurant."[19] From the early 1980s to the early 1990s he starred in two other TV series, each with a crime detection/courtroom drama theme - Nero Wolfe (1981), and Jake and the Fatman
Jake and the Fatman
(1987–92) with Joe Penny. Later life[edit] In 1957, Conrad was married to former fashion model Susan Randall (1940–1979), and the couple had one son, Christopher.[20] In 1980, Conrad married Tipton "Tippy" Stringer (1930–2010), a TV pioneer and the widow of NBC
