Marc Lawrence Overview:

Character actor, Marc Lawrence, was born Max Goldsmith on Feb 17, 1910 in New York City, NY. Lawrence died at the age of 95 on Nov 27, 2005 in Palm Springs, CA .


Marc Lawrence was a former singer and stage actor who devoted himself almost exclusively to films from 1936. With his narrow head, hooded eyes and tight, humorless smile, Lawrence was a natural for gangsters, and very efficient at it too. As he grew older, his pock-marked face took on a mottled appearance, making him look like an ancient, but still very deadly cobra.
