John Indrisano Biography

  • Profession: Actor, Consultant/advisor, Stunts
  • Born: Jan 1, 1906
  • Died: Jul 9, 1968

A former boxer, John Indrisano entered films via the sponsorship of several Hollywood sports fans, notably Mae West, who cast Indrisano in a small role in [[Feature~V80252~Every Day's a Holiday~everydaysaholiday]] (1937). Sometimes typecast as a pugilist, Indrisano was more often seen as a trainer or referee. Non-boxing fans can spot him in such "civilian" roles as the chauffeur in [[Feature~V33849~Murder My Sweet~murdermysweet]] (1944), one of his many film noir appearances. He also served as a technical advisor for the prizefight scenes in such films as [[Feature~V27200~The Kid From Brooklyn~thekidfrombrooklyn]] (1946) [[Feature~V160411~The Set Up~thesetup]] (1949) and Carmen Jones (1954). John Indrisano was 62 years old when he hung himself in his San Fernando Valley home. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
