-----I don't know why I know this, however--
by the time the war department was calling, approx. 30 yr old, men with 2 small children, the war was ending.

----And as a guess, I would add, since his son had already lost one parent, maybe he had some hesitance about leaving, him, himself?

I liked his work in the Oxbow Incident. The Best Years of Our Lives was good too. However, in other movies I've seen him in it always appears that he's TRYING to act. It's hard to put into words but it appeared that he was tense and not sure of his abilities as an actor.
My question is - why didn't he serve in WW2? He was the correct age etc. Anyone have an answer. Thanks

Response   Hi. Believe that he tried to serve in WWII but kept getting put off because of his rather large family. The service took single men first.

Dana is my favorite actor for the era of the films of the 1940's and 1950's. A great site and long overdue for a wonderful actor who overcame some personal demons with strength and dignity

I have watched several of Dana Andrew's movies more that once over the years. I am 53 and, as a teen, our local tv station showed old movies in the afternoons after school and at night on the weekends. "The Best Years of Our Lives" is a masterpiece and Mr. Andrews had a lot to do with it. I loved "State Fair' and "Laura" as well. I am sorry he wasn't given his due in Hollywood. I am also proud of the work he did to help alcoholics like himself. His family should be very proud of all his accomplishments. He seemed to have been a good family man and loving husband as well.

What a way to get to see "Laura" the first time you that are going to see it. Lucky duck! I love DVD's, but the big screen, with other fans, is a great experience.

I am such a big fan of Dana Andrews. I think he was an amazing actor and was underrated. My favorite movies of his are State Fair and The Best Years of Our Lives. Thanks so much for putting up this site because he deserved to be recognized for his amazing talent.
