Burt Lancaster

Born in New York City, Burton Stephen Lancaster (1913 – 1994) was an American film actor noted for his athletic physique, blue eyes, and distinctive smile (which he called "The Grin"). After initially building his career on "tough guy" roles Lancaster abandoned his "all-American" image in the late 1950s in favor of more complex and challenging roles, and came to be regarded as one of the best actors of his generation as a result.

Lancaster was nominated four times for Academy Awards and won once—for his work in Elmer Gantry in 1960. He also won a Golden Globe for that performance and BAFTA Awards for Birdman of Alcatraz (1962) and Atlantic City (1980). In 1999, the American Film Institute named Lancaster 19th among the greatest male stars of all time. (Wikipedia)
