Robert Mitchum
Listen, Iíve got three expressions: looking left, looking right and looking straight ahead.
(Robert Mitchum)
Actor, Out of the Past (1947)
Mitchum's curious languor, which suggests Bing Crosby supersaturated with barbiturates, becomes a brand of sexual complacency that is not endearing.
(James Agee, Time)
Actor, Secret Ceremony (1969)
Robert Mitchum plays Elizabeth Taylor's worthless and lecherous stepfather, an Anglified American college professor, for which part Robert Mitchum is ideally unsuited.
(John Simon, National Review)
Actor, Farewell My Lovely (1975)
Then there is Robert Mitchum, looking more than ever like a bloodhound that has seen too many horrible truths to stir so much as a jowl, and reading lines with his customary incertitude whenever they come in bunches bigger than five or contain words with more syllables than two. But he certainly looks and growls his part.
