Italian-American actor and singer. Sent to London by his parents to study engineering, he preferred the stage. He took voice training and began singing in Italy and New York with modest success. He composed and sang his songs on the music hall circuit, also doing impressions of Harry Lauder and other talents.

Entering film in Hollywood, he took many character roles, usually as oily, heavy racketeers and night-club owners, gangster types in films that included "Touch of Evil," "Juarez," and "For Whom The Bell Tolls."

Calleia died 10/31/1975.
