Abner Biberman Overview:

Character actor, Abner Biberman, was born on Apr 1, 1909 in Milwaukee, WI. Biberman died at the age of 68 on Jun 20, 1977 in San Diego, CA .


Polynesian-looking American actor with dark hair, quizzical eyebrows and set expression. Originally a journalist, he turned to acting in the 1930s, coming to Hollywood in 1939 and soon qualifying for all kinds of foreign menaces. In the 1950s he doubled up as a drama coach at Universal-International (as it then was), the studio that gave him the chance to direct films in 1955, after which he gave up acting. From the end of that decade, Biberman worked solidly in TV, directing episodes of drama series.
