Stanley Adams Biography

  • Profession: Actor, Screenwriter
  • Born: Jan 1, 1915
  • Died: Apr 27, 1977

After a few desultory movie appearances in the mid-1930s, rotund American actor Stanley Adams came to films permanently in 1952, to re-create his stage role as the bartender in the movie version of Death of a Salesman. His busiest period was 1955-1965, when he appeared on virtually every major TV series in America. His video roles ranged from a pompous time-travelling scientist on Twilight Zone to a wisecracking witch doctor on [[Feature~V175019~Gilligan's Island~gilligansisland[tvseries]]]. Shortly after completing his last film, 1976's [[Feature~V117481~Woman in the Rain~womanintherain]], Stanley Adams committed suicide at the age of 62. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
