Allan Rich

Actor

Born - 8 February 1926, New York City, USA
Died - 22 August 2020

Thick-lipped, moon-faced, short-nosed, unmistakeable American character actor whose budding career was badly disrupted by the Hollywood blacklist. But, after a time as a stockbroker, he returned to acting in a variety of film roles on both sides of the law. Initially thickly-haired but later balding, the actor, born Benjamin Schultz, had begun his theatrical career at 17. He returned to acting in the 1960s and began a prolific film career a decade later: Serpico (1973), The Gambler (1974), The Happy Hooker (1975), Uncle Joe Shannon (1978), The Frisco Kid (1979), Hero at Large (1980), Eating Raoul (1982), The Entity (1982), Kidco (1984), Bad Guys (1986), Checking Out (1988), Another Chance (1989), Betsy's Wedding (1990), Nickel & Dime (1992), Quiz Show (1994), Disclosure (1994), Jack (1996), Amistad (1997), The Dogwalker (1999), Myopia (2001), Intoxicating (2003), Lies and Alibis (2006), The Last Word (2008), 40-Life (2011), Rain from the Stars (2013), Wish I Was Here (2014), his last, and many others. He died from Alzheimer's complications. His wife Elaine died in 2015 after more than 60 years of marriage.
