Dan Duryea Facts
While working on the stage in New York City, Duryea made his film debut in an uncredited bit in El tango en Broadway (1934); about 33 minutes into the film, he asks Laurita to dance, and a few moments later, brings her back to her table and thanks her. Even though the film is primarily Spanish speaking, all his dialogue is in English, since the scene takes place at a New York City nightclub.

In the movie version Winchester '73 (1950), he played Waco Johnnie Dean, the nemesis of the protagonist, Lin McAdams. In the television version of Winchester 73 (1967) (TV), Duryea played Bart McAdams.

Father of actor Peter Duryea.
