Howard Da Silva Overview:

Character actor, Howard Da Silva, was born Howard Silverblatt on May 4, 1909 in Cleveland, OH. Da Silva died at the age of 76 on Feb 16, 1986 in Ossining, NY and was cremated and his ashes give to family or friend.


A surly-looking, Broadway-trained American actor, Howard Da Silva was a very useful off-centre villain whose career was stopped in its tracks by the McCarthy Blacklist. He was fired from the film, Slaughter Trail (1951), on which he was working, and spent 11 years in the wilderness. Unsurprisingly, his film career failed to recover, although he made sporadic returns to movies mainly in biting cameo roles, since 1962.
