Hollywood actor Allan Rich has died at the age of 94, his family confirmed. He died on Saturday 22 August of progressive dementia at the Lillian Booth Actors Home in Englewood, New Jersey.
Famous for his roles in Serpico, Quiz Show and Amistad, Rich made quite the name for himself in Hollywood over his many years in the acting idustry.
But it wasn’t all fun and games to begin with, as the start of his career saw him blacklisted from Hollywood.
Rich’s wife Elaine whom he was married to for 62 years, passed away in 2015 after serving as personal manager to Fran Drescher, Peter Marc Jacobson and Dixon.
“He lived large and was quite heroic to many including me when faced with the depths of despair,” Drescher said.
