Willis Bouchey Overview:

Character actor, Willis Bouchey, was born Willis Ben Bouchey on May 24, 1907 in Vernon, MI. Bouchey died at the age of 70 on Sep 27, 1977 in Burbank, CA .


Willis Bouchey was a solidly built, ambivalent-looking American supporting player with greying brown hair. He left the security of a Broadway career to try his luck in Hollywood of the early 1950s (1952, Million Dollar Mermaid; 1953, From Here to Eternity; 1954, Suddenly). He stayed in steady employment there for the remainder of his career often in western films as a banker, aging sheriff, judge or town big-shot. He was sometimes billed as Willis B. Bouchey.
