BIOGRAPHY

Portly English actor with a uniqely insinuating style of line delivery who made a sensational screen debut as the cunning Kaspar Guttman in John Huston's "The Maltese Falcon" (1941) at age 61. Greenstreet subsequently appeared in numerous films as a brilliant schemer and shrewd architect of villainy, memorably opposite Peter Lorre, with change-of-pace sympathetic roles (e.g. "Christmas in Connecticut" 1945) cropping up occasionally.
