Character actor, Vladimir Sokoloff, was born Vladimir Nikolaevich Sokoloff on Dec 26, 1889 in Moscow, Russian Empire [now Russia]. Sokoloff died at the age of 72 on Feb 15, 1962 in West Hollywood, CA and was laid to rest in Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood, CA.
Vladimir Sokoloff was an impassive, diminutive, brown-haired Russian actor with sneaky eyes and (often) goatee beard. He usually played the evil brains behind the muscle, but occasionally got a more sympathetic role. Sokoloff portrayed almost as many nationalities as J. Carrol Nash, following his arrival in Hollywood late in 1936 after a career in German and French films. He continued acting until his death from a stroke.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
