John Ridgely (born John Huntington Rea,[1] September 6, 1909 – January 18, 1968) was an American film character actor with over 175 film credits.[2]

Early years

Ridgely was born in Chicago, Illinois,[3] the son of John Ridgely Rea. Ridgely's elementary schooling was in Hinsdale, Illinois, and he attended Kemper Military School in Boonville, Missouri.[4] He also attended Stanford University before going into a career in movies.[2]

Film

He appeared in the 1946 Humphrey Bogart film The Big Sleep as blackmailing gangster Eddie Mars and had a memorable role as a suffering heart patient in the film noir Nora Prentiss (1947).

The Chicago-born actor appeared in a large number of other Warner Bros. films in the 1930s and 1940s.

Freelancing after 1948, John Ridgely continued to essay general-purpose parts until he left films in 1953; thereafter, he worked in summer-theater productions and television until his death from a heart attack at the age of 58 in 1968.
