About Richard Ney
Richard Ney was an American actor who later became a respected stock-market analyst and financial consultant.
A graduate in economics from Columbia University, Ney is remembered best for his role in the Oscar-winning World War II film Mrs. Miniver (1942), and for his short-lived (1943–1947) marriage to his co-star Greer Garson, who played his mother in the film. He also appeared in The Fan (1949).
Ney's one Broadway venture was the 1958 musical Portofino, which he produced and for which he wrote the book and lyrics. It closed after three performances.
He acted mostly in television with occasional film roles until the mid-1960s, by which time he had successfully transitioned to a career as an investment counselor. He wrote three highly critical books about Wall Street, asserting that the market was manipulated by market makers to the detriment of the average investor. The first of these, The Wall Street Jungle, was a New York Times bestseller in 1970. The second and third are The Wall Street Gang and Making It in the Market.
He has a stepdaughter named Marcia McMartin.
