To say that Beau Bridges had an uphill battle to fight in life, would be an understatement of near-epic proportions. The son of Hollywood movie star Lloyd Bridges, Beau was born just two days after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941, during the Second World War and as such, he was delivered by candlelight as there was no power due to the attacks at the time. His mother Dorothy had moved out from California to have him in New York City, where she could have more family support surrounding her while his father Lloyd was fighting on the front line with the US Army Air Corps.

In 1972, Lloyd died of a cerebral hemorrhage on a movie set in Africa and less than two weeks later, Dorothy’s mother had an aneurysm that killed her.

Time out

Beau bridges is one of the most underrated actors of all time, often flying under the radar, with no pretense or arrogance in his approach. End of the road was not only his last major film but also one of his best performances I have ever seen (save for The Fabulous Baker Boys). He plays a salesman who has given up on life and is attempting suicide unsuccessfully when he gets phone call from a woman to tell him that her son is his long-lost son who just passed away at age 17.
