Actor
    (July 14, 1901-February 27, 1980)
    Born in New York CIty, New York
    Portrayed Abner Kravitz on Bewitched
    Appeared in the movies 'They Drive By Night' (1940), 'Sergeant York' (1941), 'Yankee Doodle Dandy' (1942), 'This Is The Army' (1943), 'Passage to Marseilles' (1944), 'Objective: Burma!'

    In movies, he was usually cast as the not-too-bright friend of the lead.
    He came out of retirement to reprise Abner Kravitz in the short-lived series Tabitha.
    After he died, the vehicle transporting his body from Cedars Sinai Hospital to Mount Sinai Memorial Park got into a fender bender. When the driver got out to exchange insurance info, two carjackers swiped the hearse, only to abandon it a couple of blocks later, probably when they realized they had company.
    He appeared in 'Bewitched' with both Dick Sargent and Dick York and was in the movie 'Sergeant York' -- this means something! (Okay, maybe it doesn't.)
    He allowed servicemen and veterans visiting LA to stay at his ranch rather than pay for a hotel.
    After being told of George's posthumous carjacking, his brother said it seemed a fitting end and he could imagine George laughing about his last adventure.
