Dean Jagger began his film career in his one and only silent film, in the 1929 movie, Woman From Hell. He would appear as a character actor in several more films over the next 20 years, before distinguishing himself in the 1949 film, 12 Oclock High, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Having established his acting credentials, Jagger would go on to appear in a string of big name films during his nearly 60 year career, such as, The Robe, White Christmas, Bad Day At Black Rock, Elmer Gantry, A Nun's Story, Day Of The Evil Gun and one of his last appeareances in a big name film, was as the snake catcher in the original Vanishing Point. During the early 60's, he began to work in t.v. and took on the role of Princible Albert Vane on the 1963-1965 series, .Mr Novak. You don't really need to pull up a picture to remember this fella. Just think of the COMPLETELY bald actor, who always impressed you so much. Jagger spoke with a pronounced lisp in real life, but for some reason or other, it completely disappeared in front of the camera. The role that comes to mind when I think of him. is as the store owner in Fire Creek with Jimmy Stewart and Henry Fonda made in the late 60's, and the speech he gave Stewart, when Stewart wants to use Jagger's gun against Fonda and his gang. Either the role fit him or he made himself fit the role like a glove. .Mr Jagger continued to act until 1987 and passed away at the ripe ole age of 87 in 1991.
