Biography

Broadway musical comedy performer James Mitchell made his first screen appearance in a non-musical role in 1944's Cobra Woman. His most celebrated screen assignment was as Gordon MacRae's dancing counterpart in the Agnes DeMille's "Dream Ballet" sequence in Oklahoma (1955). Nearly 25 years later, he gained a loyal daytime-drama following as Palmer Cortland on ABC's All My Children. James Mitchell remained active in films and TV until 1990. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
