Description: 

Otto Kruger, grand-nephew of former South African President Paul Kruger, first took the Broadway stage at age fifteen and by the 1920s was a Broadway star. The Ohio native turned to the big screen becoming 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. He also guest starred on CBS' "Perry Mason" and other television series. The portrait captures the duality of Kruger's character roles focusing on his soft, yet reserved smile.
