Broderick Crawford
   for his role in   
All the King's Men (1949)
"All the King's Men" was a hit, as was "Born Yesterday" (Crawford replaced actor Paul Douglas, who had originated the role on Broadway, in this cast). However, he was unable to keep up his career due to typecasting as a crude, boorish brute. The fact that he was a hard drinker and was occasionally belligerent on-set didn't help his career prospects.
