Mini Bio (1)

If you've ever seen a war picture, sci-fi epic or western from the 1940s or 1950s, then you've seen Thomas Browne Henry, and more than once. Along with Morris Ankrum, Henry is probably the army officer most responsible for helping Earth drive off hordes of invading outer-space monsters, aliens and other unwelcome intruders. His stocky build, sharply etched face, commanding voice and no-nonsense, get-down-to-business style were just right for the scores of generals, colonels, bankers, political leaders and other authority figures he played over his long and prolific career. Born in California, he had a very successful career as a stage actor and director, and was closely associated with the renowned Pasadena Playhouse, before breaking into films in 1948 (his brother, William Henry, was also an actor) and played a succession of cops, sheriffs, district attorneys, professors and, of course, army officers over the next 20+ years. He finally retired in 1970 and went back to his first love, the theater, again back to the Pasadena Playhouse. He died in 1980.

Personal Quotes (1)

Entertainment conveys thought and emotions and is enjoyed especially when you are relaxed. You can be indoctrinated, for under relaxed conditions you are most vulnerable. This is why you hear of censorship today because of the widespread use of themes such as homosexuality and violence. These can be poisonous. When the people from across the seas penetrate a country they strike first at the labor unions and second at the arts. This should not be taken lightly. Some people never grow beyond the Zorro state and can be open to these influences. The question to keep in mind is: how are we being entertained?
