George Raft (George Raft)

George   Raft

Popular actor from the 1920s to 1980. He was known as one of Hollywoods sharpest dressed actors. Before acting, he started off as a prizefighter, then moved on to dancing both on Broadway and in Prohibition-era nightclubs. In movies he immediately slid into gangster portrayals. On top of being type cast as a Hollywood gangster, he made bad decisions choosing his next roles. He turned down “High Sierra” reportedly because he didn’t want to die on-screen, and nixed Sam Spade in “The Maltese Falcon” because it seemed to him a lowly B picture. He achieved some success appearing in “Some Like It Hot” (1959) and continued to act until his death in 1980.
