I used to caress myself as I danced. I never felt I was a great dancer. I was more of a stylist, unique. George's screen debut was in Queen of the Night Clubs , starring Guinan, who insisted Raft have a small role.

The film is lost now. It has been reported that Raft's scenes were cut. Raft also appeared in stage shows supporting the film.

One reviewer called him "a clever dancer". Raft followed this with small roles in Gold Diggers of Broadway and Side Street , dancing with some chorus girls.

He was spotted by director Rowland Brown, who used him to good effect, including a solo dance sequence in a substantial supporting gangster role as Spencer Tracy's character's sidekick in Quick Millions In Taxi!

He was third-billed as a gangster in Dancers in the Dark , below Miriam Hopkins as a dancer and Jack Oakie as a bandleader.

He later made a semi-autobiographical film called Broadway about this period in which he plays himself.

He also worked in London as a chorus boy in the early s. In , Raft relocated to Hollywood and took small roles.

His big break came later that same year as the nickel-flipping second lead alongside Paul Muni's raging killer in Scarface , and Raft's convincing portrayal led to speculation that Raft was a gangster.

Due to his lifelong friendship with Owney Madden , Raft was a friend or acquaintance of several other crime figures, including Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky.

When Gary Cooper's romantic escapades put him on one gangster's hit list, Raft reportedly interceded and persuaded the mobster to spare Cooper.

During his years of major stardom, Raft was nearly always accompanied around town by his associate and best friend Mack Gray , a friend since his boxing days in New York.

Orson Welles explained to Peter Bogdanovich in their interview book 'This is Orson Welles' that, as Raft's career accelerated, the actor was particularly an idol and role model for actual gangsters of the period in terms of dress and attitude.

He was one of the three most popular gangster actors of the s, with James Cagney and Edward G. Robinson ; Raft ranked far above Humphrey Bogart in fame and box office clout throughout the decade.

When the studio refused to hire Texas Guinan, the performer upon whom one of the movie's characters was based, because of her age, Raft advocated for the casting of his friend, Mae West, in a supporting role in his first film as leading man, Night After Night , which launched her movie career.

The years and proved to be Raft's career peak. He went into a gradual professional decline over the next decade, in part due to allegedly turning down some of the most famous roles in movie history.

Raft was also reported to have turned down Bogart's role in Casablanca , although according to some Warner Bros.

Following the release of the espionage thriller Background to Danger , a film intended to capitalize on the success of Casablanca , Raft demanded termination of his Warner Brothers contract.

Raft is widely believed to have been functionally illiterate, which could account for the confusion. Raft's career as a leading man continued through the s with films of gradually declining quality often produced by Benedict Bogeaus or filmed overseas for tax benefits in Great Britain and Italy, spiraling steadily downward until his name was finally limited as a box office draw.

During the s he was reduced to working as a greeter at the Capri Casino in Mob dominated Havana, Cuba, where he was a part owner.

In , Raft also starred as Lt. George Kirby in a syndicated television series police drama titled I'm the Law , which ran for one season and was one of the earliest instances of a movie star of his previous calibre accepting the lead in a TV series.

He wound up occasionally accepting supporting roles in movies, such as playing second fiddle to Robert Taylor in Rogue Cop Raft satirized his gangster image with a well-received supporting performance in Some Like it Hot , but this did not lead to a comeback, and he spent the remainder of the decade making films in Europe.

He played a small role as a casino owner in Ocean's 11 opposite the Rat Pack. Granted a year's visa to the United Kingdom in , Raft was a greeter in several clubs where he had a cameo in 's James Bond spoof Casino Royale.

From then on it was rapidly downhill. He was not helped by his association with gangsters. Most notably Owney Madden and Bugsy Siegal. By the 50s his film career was all but over.

Curiously there is an afterword by a former girlfriend who doesnt like his role as Spats because it doesnt show him as the "generous considerate gentleman that he was".

This book moves along at a fair old pace rather like one of the Warners 30s gangster films. Very entertaining and i am sure all fans of the era and the actor will enjoy it,.

George Raft's life could have been the work of fiction, born in he had a tough beginning, raised in Hell's Kitchen, he left the family home at 13 and fended for himself, he knew all the New York crime lords, occasionally being employed by them in one way or another.

During the prohibition he drove lorries to get shipments of booze to the speakeasies whilst working as a dancer. Yet despite all his shady connections, broken education and scraping by existence, George Raft was also an urbane and charming man, one of the nicest men in pictures to some, to others a big pain in the posterior.

Stone Wallace's research bring so many anecdotes and tales to this work and draws on the previous biographies of Raft along with Goerge's friends and costars that he's interviewed himself.

The result is a fast paced, hard to put down book about one of the more complex and fascinating man to work in Hollywood. As the title suggests the man who would be Bogart, not many would put Raft ahead of Bogart in the acting department but he was a big star in his time and deserves this well researched biography about him.

A very well written biography, honest and researched. I would recommend this book highly. I didn't want it to end!

I felt I really got to know him. I loved this book. I'm not a huge fan of Georges but I am now. I loved a lot of his films.

He did not always want to be a bad guy. George was generous to a fault. He lent over 1,, dollars over his lifetime and saw nearly zilch back.

George fell deeply in love two times but his in name only marriage to his wife Grace kept him tied to her. She said her Catholic faith did not allow her to divorce.

George was a proud and sensitive person. He was very kind and never forgot where he came from. As another reviewer said he was very insecure about his lack of education among other things.

Compra verificada. This is, as described, a used book, but in fairly good condition being well over twenty tears old now. George Raft was a big star at one time but he turned down lots of roles that were made into hit films by the likes of Humphrey Bogart.

He often claimed never to have seen himself on the screen. He had love affairs with most of the leading ladies in Hollywood of that era.

He had friendships with mobsters in his early life and this is how he developed his screen persona. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes George Raft or has an interest in cinema Because of his shyness and insecurities about his education many people thought he was mean.

The oldest of nine children he was very close to his mother but him and his father never saw eye to eye. George was a great dancer which got him going in his career and his way with women was legendary.

George married young and to a woman that had a boyfriend she said would have them picked up for crossing state lines.

Many women like Norma Shearer wanted to marry George but his wife refused to give him a divorce despite many attempts throughout his life.
