Actor Joseph Cotten (1905-1994) made his Broadway debut in 1930, and seven years later joined Orson Welles' progressive Mercury Theatre company. He briefly left Welles in 1939 to co-star in Katharine Hepburn's Broadway comeback vehicle The Philadelphia Story. Cotten rejoined Welles in Hollywood in 1940, making his feature-film debut in Citizen Kane (1941). A firmly established romantic lead by the early 1940s, he occasionally stepped outside his established screen image to play murderers (Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt, 1943) and surly drunkards (Under Capricorn, 1949). Cotten won a Venice Film Festival award for his performance in Portrait of Jennie (1948). He later flourished on television as a guest performer on such anthologies as Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Fireside Theatre and The Great Adventure, and as host of The 20th Century-Fox Hour (1955), The Joseph Cotten Show (1956), On Trial (1959) and Hollywood and the Stars (1963).
