Profile Bio Text
Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania into a family of vaudeville performers, Quillan made his stage debut at the age of seven alongside his parents, Scottish-born Joseph Quillan and his wife Sarah, as well as his siblings in their act entitled `The Rising Generation`. By the early 1920s he was called upon by film director Mack Sennett to perform a screen test for Mack Sennett Studios. Sennett signed Quillan to a contract in 1922. Quillan`s first film appearance was in the 1922 comedy short Up and At `Em. His next performance was in the 1926 comedy short The Love Sundae opposite actress Alice Day. His next ten film appearances (all released in 1926) were all comedy shorts that were vehicles for Day. He would spend the much of the remaining years of the 1920s in comedy shorts featuring actresses Ruth Taylor and Madeline Hurlock. In 1928, Quillan starred in the comedy A Little Bit of Everything, notable because it featured his siblings Marie, Joseph and John in starring roles. Marie Quillan would eventually embark on a film career of her own and appear opposite her brother once more, in the 1929 comedy Nosy Neighbors. Quillan`s first feature-length film was the 1928 comedy-drama Show Folks opposite actress Lina Basquette, in which Quillan appropriately plays a vaudeville dancer. The film was a modest success and also featured actress Carole Lombard. Quillan`s breakout role (and first dramatic film role) was in the 1929 Cecil B. DeMille directed The Godless Girl. The film paired Quillan once again with Basquette and starred Marie Prevost and Noah Beery, Sr. His subsequent exposure from the film landed him a contract with Pathé studios. Eddie Quillan would remain a popular leading and secondary actor throughout the sound film era and would appear in such notable fims as 1935`s Mutiny on the Bounty with Clark Gable, Charles Laughton, and Franchot Tone, 1939`s Young Mr. Lincoln opposite Henry Fonda and Alice Brady, and as `Connie Rivers` in John Ford`s 1940 film adaptation of the John Steinbeck novel The Grapes of Wrath opposite Henry Fonda and 1943`s It Ain`t Hay opposite the comedic duo Abbott and Costello. Quillan`s breezy screen personality was seen in "B" musicals, comedies, and even serials during the 1940s. In 1948 Columbia Pictures producer Jules White teamed Eddie Quillan with veteran movie comic Wally Vernon for a series of comedy short subjects. White emphasized extreme physical comedy in these films, and Vernon and Quillan made a good team, enthusiastically engaging in pratfalling, kick-in-the-pants slapstick. The series ran through 1956. Beginning in the late 1950s, Eddie Quillan began to make the transition to the medium of television and by the 1960s could be seen frequently appearing as a guest actor in such series as The Andy Griffith Show, Petticoat Junction, Perry Mason, and approximately five appearances on the camp-horror comedy series The Addams Family. From 1968 through 1971 he appeared as "Eddie Edson" on the television drama Julia opposite actress Diahann Carroll. Through the 1950s and 1960s, Quillan continued to appear in motion pictures, but in increasingly smaller roles and often in bit parts. One notable appearance of the era was his role of `Sandy` in the 1954 Vincente Minnelli directed musical Brigadoon, starring Gene Kelly, Van Johnson and Cyd Charisse. Quillan also appeared in the uncredited role of `Mr.Cassidy` in the 1969 Gene Kelly film adaptation of Hello, Dolly!, starring Barbra Streisand and Walter Matthau and featuring Louis Armstrong. In the 1970s, Quillan made guest appearances on such television series as Mannix, Chico and the Man and Baretta. After meeting and befriending actor and director Michael Landon, he played numerous bit roles in the popular television series Little House on the Prairie. Quillan also performed in the Landon directed series Highway to Heaven and Father Murphy during the 1980s. Eddie Quillan made his last television appearance in a 1987 episode of the television crime-mystery series Matlock. Eddie Quillan died of cancer in Burbank, California, USA in 1990 and was interred at the San Fernando Mission Cemetery in Mission Hills, Los Angeles County, Los Angeles, California.
