Biography

A veteran vaudeville performer, Jack Santoro was reportedly discovered by Warner Bros. writer Darryl F. Zanuck because of his resemblance to debonair comedy stars Raymond Griffith and Adolphe Menjou. In 1927, he played a crusading newspaperman in George Jessel's Ginsburg the Great and was apparently so convincing that he would spend the next three decades playing reporters. Santoro's screen and television career lasted well into the 1960s although he rarely received billing. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
