      Alf Kjellin

      Alf Kjellin

      Highest Rated: 100% Summer Interlude (1950)

      Lowest Rated: 47% Ice Station Zebra (1968)

      Birthday: Feb 28, 1920

      Birthplace: Lund, Sweden

      Although he was never nominated for any acting-related awards (nor scored a true breakout role), actor Alf Kjellin made nearly 80 appearances in television programs/movies between 1937 and 1979, and become a much sought-after director. Born on February 28, 1920, in Lund, Sweden, Kjellin made his acting debut in 1937, via an uncredited role in the film "The Great John Ericsson." One of his better known films, 1944's "Torment," eventually led to Kjellin making the jump to Hollywood pictures, which resulted in a short-lived name change (Christopher Kent). However, it wasn't until the early 1960s that Kjellin relocated from Sweden to the United States, which resulted in countless directorial roles, one of his best being the 1971 made-for-television movie "Deadly Dream" (which starred Lloyd Bridges and Janet Leigh) and episodes of such hit shows as "Mission: Impossible," "Gunsmoke," and "The Waltons").
