Actor Lloyd Nolan dies LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lloyd • Nolan, who won an Emmy for his portrayal of the mad Capt. Queeg in "The Caine Mutiny Court Martial" and brought a touch of class to many mediocre films, is dead at 83. His film credits included his movie debut in "Stolen Harmony" in 1935, "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" in 1944, "Peyton Place" in 1958, "Ice Station Zebra" in 1968 and "Airport" in 1969. The actor, who had been battling lung cancer, had been hospitalized at Century City Hospital. He was discharged to his home several weeks ago, a nursing supervisor said Friday night. He died Friday at his Brentwood home, said producer Jack Rourke. Nolan was highly regarded by critics, who credited him with ex- AN ENDURING SYMBOL of heartfelt love A monument i* o btcoUM and permanent symbol. \\ preserve* forever the memory o? ihosc held deo<» MONUMENT WORKS INC.

He languished during much of the 1930s and 1940s in a string of "B" movies in Hollywood. Later he was lured out of retirement many times, perhaps most notably when he agreed to become the white co-star of television's first black-oriented series, "Julia." From 1968 to 1971, he portrayed Dr. Morton Chegley, playing a secondary role to actress Diahann Carroll, who portrayed his nurse. Despite dozens of film credits, Nolan won but one national accolade — a 1955 Emmy for his portrayal of the crazed Philip Queeg from Herman Wouk's novel in a television adaptation of "The Caine Mutiny Court Martial." Drama critic Brooks Atkinson found that portrayal "a portrait of fear, desperation and panic" and "a stunning piece of work." Among his films, Nolan played an FBI agent in the 1945 spy drama, "The House on 92nd Street," and a military man in "Guadalcanal Diary . >v "He was one of the most professional actors that ever worked in Hollywood," said producer A.C. Lyles, who knew Nolan since 1938. Lyles, who produced the 1977 television movie "Flight lo Holocaust," which included Nolan, said the actor never displayed the traditional star temperament. "He always showed tremendous interest and he was always trying to belter a scene or make a story point better, but his suggestions were usually in favor of a fellow actor, "Lyles said. Rourke, who produced the annual Autistic Children's Telethon, said Nolan was the chairman of the telethon because his son, Jay, had suffered from autism and eventually died.

He then joined a touring company of "The Front Page" and ended up in New England, where he took a night job as a stagehand while awaiting an acting job. That opportunity came, he once said, because he was spending most of his days on the beach The resultant tan brought him the role of a pirate in "Cape Cod Follies " which eventually went to Broadway with Nolan in the chorus Subscribe Today Call744-36li
