From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Noel Purcell (born December 23, 1900—March 3, 1985) was an Irish film actor.

Irish actor Noel Purcell graced many a film and TV show with variations of his standard character, the bearded, boozy son of the Auld Sod. Stage-trained in the classics in Dublin, Purcell moved into films in 1934. His days of prominence, which lasted until the 1970s, began with Captain Boycott (1947), and his best part to date was as the elderly sailor whose death marooned the lovers-to-be in The Blue Lagoon (1949). Purcell was dominant among Captain Ahab's crew in Moby Dick (1956) and highly visible as a gameskeeper in The List of Adrian Messenger (1963), both films directed by John Huston. In 1955, he was an off-and-on regular on the British filmed TV series The Buccaneers (released to American TV in 1956), and Purcell narrated a Hibernian documentary, Seven Wonders of Ireland (1959). One of Purcell's best-remembered appearances of the 1960s was as Lebanese-American entertainer Danny Williams' tactiturn Irish in-law in a 1963 episode of The Danny Thomas Show. In 1985, Noel Purcell died in Dublin, Ireland at age 84.
