Kane Richmond ACTOR


Kane Richmond was born on December 23rd 1906 in Minneapolis, Minnesota with the birth name Fred Bowditch.  During the era of the 30’s and 40’s, Richmond was a supporting player in Hollywood and a star on numerous 'B' rated adventure two-reelers and feature films.
His career in entertainment began working as a film booker when he himself was invited to work as an actor on a number of films.  His film debut was in “The Leathur Pushers” with Universal Pictures.  He went on to film in a number of studio films such as, “The Lost Jungle” (1935) and some other films with Ambassador and Monogram.  Soon into the 1940’s Republic Pictures cast him in a variety of films as the leading man.  Many consider his best role to be from the film "Spy Smasher" (1942).
Some of his other film roles were on such features as “All American” (1940), “Black Gold” (1947), “Behind the Mask” (1946) and “A Gentleman at Heart” (1942). 
Kane Richmond retired from the film industry in the late 1940’s and then chose to pursue a career in the fashion industry where he did very well financially.  Kane Richmond passed away on March 22nd, 1973 in Corona Del Mar, California.
