Biography

​From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George Tobias (July 14, 1901 – February 27, 1980) was an American character actor.

Born to a Jewish family in New York, he began his acting career at the Pasadena Playhouse in Pasadena, California. He then spent several years in theater groups before moving on to Broadway and, eventually, Hollywood. In 1939, Tobias signed with Warner Brothers, where he played in supporting roles, many times along with James Cagney, in such movies as Cagney's Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942) as well as with Gary Cooper in Sergeant York (1941). Tobias later achieved fame in the 1960s by playing long-suffering neighbor Abner Kravitz on the TV sitcom Bewitched.

George Tobias never married and retired from acting in 1977 after a guest role in the Bewitched sequel Tabitha.

On February 27, 1980, Tobias died of bladder cancer at the age of 78 at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.

The hearse containing his body was stolen on the way to the mortuary. The driver got out to speak to someone, and vandals stole the car. After driving about a mile, they realized that Tobias' body was in the back and fled the car. He is buried in Mount Carmel Cemetery, Glendale, Queens County, New York.
