BIOGRAPHY

Stocky, gritty-looking character player with a shock of wavy hair, bushy eyebrows and strong, lined features. After serving in the Navy in WWII and receiving a Purple Heart, Remsen studied acting at Ithaca College and the Neighborhood Playhouse. During his tenure at the latter in the early 1950s, he performed on Broadway in "The Rainmaker" and in Mae West's revival of her legendary 20s success "Diamond Lil". Remsen also acted on TV in NY-based anthology dramas, including the acclaimed "U.S. Steel Hour" presentation of "Bang the Drum Slowly" (1956) with Paul Newman. Stage tours brought him to Hollywood, where he made his feature debut in Lewis Milestone's "Pork Chop Hill" (1959).
