Biography

Broadway-based actor Anthony Ross is best remembered by theatre buffs for originating the character of The Gentleman Caller in Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie. Ross also appeared in Moss Hart's morale-boosting play Winged Victory, and was set to repeat his role in the 1944 20th Century-Fox screen version, when for reasons unknown his part was recast. Even so, he remained with Fox in the postwar years, playing character roles in such films as Kiss of Death (1947) and The Gunfighter (1950). Anthony Ross made his last screen appearance in The Country Girl (1954), reprising his Broadway characterization as laconic playwright Phil Cook. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
