George Sanders

Biography

Russian-born American actor who won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in "All About Eve," 1950. He was known for his rude, cynical and often disagreeable demeanor; Sanders was easily type-casted as the witty heavy or dedicated crank. He appeared in 90 films from 1936. Among his works were the favorites, including "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir," "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and "A Shot in the Dark." Born to British parents living in St. Petersburg, his family fled back to Britain during the communist revolution, when he was 11.

Sanders had it all, fame, an Oscar, money, a fascinating life and five wives, including both Zsa Zsa Gabor and her sister Magda. He called in 1960 autobiography "Memoirs of a Professional Cad," confessing of himself rudeness and incivility, once stating that "a woman is never worth what she costs, even if she costs nothing."

On 4/25/1972, in a hotel room in Castelldefels, Spain, Sanders committed suicide by swallowing five bottles of Nembutal. He left behind a note saying "Dear World, I am leaving you because I'm bored. I feel I have lived long enough. I am leaving you with your worries in this sweet cesspool and good luck."
