Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Energetic vaudeville performer with famous rolling eyes, in Hollywood from 1926. Cantor was extremely popular in the 1930s on the radio, and in mostly routine movies that showcased his inimitable, infectious style of song, dance and (sometimes risque) comedy. He has a small part in the meager 1957 biopic "The Eddie Cantor Story," starring Keefe Brasselle.
