      Sam Wanamaker

      Sam Wanamaker

      Highest Rated: 86% The Concrete Jungle (1960)

      Lowest Rated: Not Available

      Birthday: Jun 14, 1919

      Birthplace: Chicago, Illinois, USA

      Distinguished looking, left-leaning actor who came to the screen in 1948 after considerable experience as an actor/director on the Chicago and Broadway stage. During the "Red Scare," Wanamaker appeared in "Give Us This Day" (1949), directed in London by Edward Dmytryk, a blacklisted member of the Hollywood Ten and after appearing in another film in England remained there to avoid any possible repercussions for his political commitments. After appearing in two British productions, however, he found that the tentacles of the Hollywood blacklist reached across the Atlantic, making it impossible for him to continue working in film.
