Description: 

Otto Kruger, a grand-nephew of former South African President Paul Kruger, first took the Broadway stage at age fifteen and emerged as a star there in the 1920s. Turning to the screen, the Ohio native became a prolific and popular character actor who often portrayed the villain or a charming but corrupt businessman. He appeared in 80 feature films, including the Alfred Hitchcock-directed "Saboteur" in 1942, "High Noon" in 1952, and "Magnificent Obsession" in 1954, and also guest starred on CBS' "Perry Mason" and other television series. This off-centered portrait portrays the "violent but corrupt" character duality in his soft yet reserved smile.
