Born: January 9, 1925 in Somerville, New Jersey, USA
Died: December 16, 1989 (age 64) in Oxnard, California, USA

Being born with a pair of beady eyes was the best thing that ever happened to me.

Bad guys have always been my bag . . . I look mean without even trying. Audiences just naturally hate me on screen. I could play a role in a tuxedo and people would think I was rotten. You can do much more with a villain part. Movies are full of leading men, most of whom aren’t working. It’s much harder to find a good villain.
