Jeff Morrow

Irving "Jeff" Morrow (January 13, 1907 – December 26, 1993) was an American actor educated at the Pratt Institute in his native New York City. He was a commercial artist prior to turning to acting. As early as 1927, Morrow acted onstage as Irving Morrow in Pennsylvania. He later appeared in such plays as Penal Law, and Once in a Lifetime, as well as repertory in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Twelfth Night, Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth. After serving in the U.S. Army during World War II, Morrow spent the late 1940s on the stage and in radio, where he won the title role in the Dick Tracy radio series. He appeared in many Broadway productions, notably Three Wishes for Jamie, Billy Budd, the Maurice Evans production of Macbeth, and the Katharine Cornell production of Romeo and Juliet. Morrow turned to film acting relatively late in his career, commencing with the Biblical epic The Robe in 1953.
