Brennan had a hit record in 1962 with Old Rivers.

Actor Walter Brennan Walter Brennan

If Walter Brennan's real estate business had been successful, the big screen may have been deprived of his talent. He made a fortune in Los Angeles real estate after World War I, then lost it when the stock market took a sudden plunge; he moved into doing stints as a movie extra, stuntman, and in bit-part roles to raise money. He claimed to have two styles of acting: "Teeth in and teeth out." After the age of thirty-eight, when he lost most of his teeth in an accident, he specialized in coots whose character names tended to include "Old," "Old Man," "Pa," or "Grandpa," memorably as Old atrocity in Barbary coast (1935).

Dental misfortune elevated Brennan from unbilled bit roles such as a neighbor in Bride of Frankenstein (1935) to character superstardom as a three-time winner of the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, the first as Swedish logger Swan Bostrom in Come and Get It 91936). He remains the only person to have won the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award three times. For Howard Hawks, he was an ideal eccentric sidekick: to Humphrey Bogart in To Have and Have Not (1944), in which his signature line was "Wuz you ever stung by a dead bee?" and to John Wayne in Red River (1948) and Rio Bravo (1959). Most happily cast in Westerns, he varied his run of comical tagalongs with the occasional villain, roguish as Judge Roy Bean - "And that's m'rulin'!" - in The Westerner (1940), or cold-eyed as Old Man Clanton in My Darling Clementine (1946). In later life, he had four top 100 singles, including "Old Rivers" (1962). He also made appearances in TV series such as Alias Smith and Jones, and was a genial presence in old-timer reunion efforts such as the Over-the-Holl Gang TV movies. Walter Brennan died in 1974, leaving a wife of 54 years, three children, and the legacy of five decades of screen performances.

"Don't spill none of that liquor, son. It eats right into the bar." - Judge Roy W. Bean, The Westerner

Interred at San Fernando Mission Cemetery, San Fernando, Los Angeles County, California, USA

Owned a ranch and several businesses in Joseph, Oregon, including the Indian Lodge Motel which still displays several of his portraits in the office.

He was offered the lead role in Herbie Rides Again (1974), but was too ill with emphysema to act. The script was then rewritten as a vehicle for Helen Hayes.
