Lloyd Nolan could play any character in any genre and was believable in every role. He was not acting; he was just real. He was Inspector Briggs in The House on 92nd Street and The Street With No Name. He was Dr. Swain in Peyton Place, and he was Lt. De Garmot in Lady in the Lake. Off-screen, he was devoted to his autistic son, Jay, who died in an accident. For the rest of his life, he did everything he could to better the lives of disabled people and their families.
