Sam Jaffe was a Jewish actor from the 1930s to the 1980s. He was "blacklisted" in Hollywood in the early 1950s after making The Day the Earth Stood Still in 1951, and his career did not fully recover until he was hired by director William Wyler for his role in the 1959 version of Ben-Hur. Some of his other movies include: Lost Horizon, The Asphalt Jungle (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film), The Day the Earth Stood Still, Ben-Hur, Gunga Din, The Scarlet Empress, and TV's "Ben Casey" (as Dr. Zorba). He passed away in 1984 at the age of 93.
