Bruce Gordon


Born - 1 February 1916, Fitchburg, Massachusetts, USA
Died - 20 January 2011

Slickly dark-haired, forcefully glowering, heavy-set character actor best remembered for his four years playing gangster Frank Nitti in the iconic TV series The Untouchables. He came to acting in his twenties, but his Broadway career had barely got started before war service. TV proved his main employer for his most productive years, and film roles were, on the whole, minor and few: The Naked City (1948), The Street with No Name (1948) , menacing the Marxes in Love Happy (1949), The Buccaneer (1958), Curse of the Undead (1959), Key Witness (1960), Rider on a Dead Horse (1962), Tower of London (1962), Hello Down There (1969), 40 Graves for 40 Guns (1971), Piranha (1978) and Timerider: The Adventure of Lyle Swann (1982), his last.
