Beau Bridges will be screening **Don’t Fade Away** on Sunday at Cinema Paradiso. It is likely that Beau will discuss “the family business;” his brother is Jeff Bridges and his father is the late Lloyd Bridges. The family Bridges filmed the classic television show **Sea Hunt,** which included some filming in South Florida.
Beau portrayed the husband to **Norma Rae,** the film that garnered Sally Field her first Oscar. Jeff and Beau portrayed **The Fabulous Baker Boys** and attempted to woo Michelle Pfeiffer by tickling her ivories.
It is on television that Beau received his most critical praise, most notably earning the Emmy Award for portraying a historical figure in, **Without Warning - The James Brady Story.** Not one to stay typecast in a genre, Beau had a reoccurring role in **Stargate SG-1** and was the patriarch in **Harts of the West,** costarring Harley Jane Kozak.
