Lloyd Bridges Net Worth
Lloyd Bridges Net Worth: Lloyd Bridges was an American actor who had a net worth of $15 million at the time of his death in 1998, after adjusting for inflation and including real estate. Lloyd died on March 10, 1998 at the age of 85. During his career starred in more than 150 feature films and several classic television shows. Today he is perhaps best known as the father of actors Jeff and Beau Bridges. Outside of his famous sons, Lloyd will be forever remembered as Mike Nelson, the square-jawed frogman star of the underwater adventure series, "Sea Hunt".
He was born Lloyd Vernet Bridges, Jr on January 15, 1913 in Los Angeles, California. A member of the experimental Actors' Lab group in the mid-1930s, Lloyd made his debut as an actor on Broadway with "Othello" in 1939. Two years later, he was already signed by Columbia and appeared in projects of varying quality, including "Here Comes Mr. Jordan" and "Talk of the Town". The 1950s saw Lloyd Bridges perform in the cult sci-fi film, "Rocketship Z-M". Throughout the decade Bridges was also 'graylisted' from the Hollywood A-list due to his earlier radicalism and suspected anti-American tendencies. This made him move into television, where he soon found great success in "Sea Hunt". With the endless re-runs of the most popular program of the era, Bridges became both a star and a millionaire. Subsequent TV outings like "The Lloyd Bridges Show" failed to recoup Sea Hunt's success. It was not until 1980's "Airplane!" that Bridges found his audience again, this time with a new style – zany screwball comedy. In its sequel "Airplane II", "Joe vs. the Volcano" and the two "Hot Shots" films, Bridges seemed to excel in goofy comic role throughout the 1980s. Off screen, Lloyd Bridges was a fervent environmentalist and campaigner on green issues, active in the American Oceans Campaign and Los Angeles' "Heal the Bay" campaign, among many others. He died of natural causes on March 10, 1998.
Real Estate: In the 1950s, Lloyd and Dorothy Bridges bought an oceanfront home in Malibu for a nominal amount of money in today's dollars. Upon his death in 1998, Jeff, Beau and their sister inherited the house which today could be worth $4 – 6 million. The siblings rent the home for an average of $16,000 per month. Thanks to a special tax law in California called Proposition 13, the siblings only have to pay $5,700 a year in property taxes.
