    George Raft always gave the most accurate performances of the american gangster. raft was unfairly judged by history, because of his earlier associations with people who would later be on the wrong side of the law. raft's only fault was that he was honest, he knew what friendship was, even when it would cost him film roles. his formal acting experience was limited, but he actually had the inside on many film scenes that directors had no clue.I really feel that people today do not understand the man George Raft. Raft did not hide his past or the people and friends of his youth. George Raft was the real deal.

    George Raft was one of a kind for sure every role in which he appeared became even better ,Each Dawn and Scarface to me were 1-2. Truly a legend of turn of the century movies a mans man ,likely to be one of the best of his craft. Definitely a hard act to follow in any era past or present.Joe S.

    George Raft was a very popular actor of the 30s.He gave Mae West her first break in films.In 1931/32 he was the highest paid actor in the business. My Father looked a lot like him so I got an early education about his movies of the 30s/40s/50s. Please have a "George Raft Day" soon! (Include "Bolero"with Carole Lombard,Dashiell Hammet's "The Glass Key & "The Bowery" where he plays Steve Brody-the man who was supposed to have jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge & lived.)

    I truly am a big fan. George Raft he was a very sexy man. Back his days I don't know but he looked. Like the gangster type him and my other tough guys. From those days he was a good performer. Hopefully one day you'll have a day of George Raft movies.

  • love george raft!!

    He's one of my favourite actors and certainly my favourite actor of the 30s. A real renaissance man; he had it all; he could act, dance, fight, he was handsome, and hell, he was even mafia connected! Why on earth wasn't he a hugge star??! I can't understand why some people say he wasnt a very good actor; it's beyond me. like Tim, i enjoyed him in "each dawn i die" and i loved him in " they drive by night" with bogart and i thought his comedic scenes and his banter with ann sheridan were great. I think some of the descisions he made about his roles (casablanca..etc) we foolish in retrospect, but hell I think he was magnetic, charming, rogueish and incredibly handsome. Rafty we love ya!

  • Good performance

    George Raft performance in Every Dawn I Die was outstanding. He played Stacy a lifer who breaks out of prison and helps a fellow con (James Cagney) on the inside clear himself of a crime he didn't commit.
