Actor
George Raft was an American film actor and dancer identified with portrayals of gangsters in crime melodramas of the 1930s and 1940s. A stylish leading man in dozens of movies, today George Raft is mostly known for his gangster roles in the original Scarface, Each Dawn I Die, and Billy Wilder's 1959 comedy Some Like it Hot, as a dancer in Bolero, and a truck driver in They Drive by Night. Raft's real-life association with New York gangsters gave his screen image in mob films an added realism. He also gained retrospective notoriety for the leading roles that he turned down--only to have those roles become breakout hits for other actors.
