Eddie Cantor *

a.k.a. Isidor (Izzy) Itzkowitz

Author Code: AEDC

Born: Jan.31, 1892 - New York City, New York, USA

Died: Oct. 10, 1964 - Beverly Hills, California, USA

Raised primarily by his grandmother after the death of his parents. From an early age Cantor was an entertainer, clowning and singing on street corners. In 1904, he spent the summer at a Young Men's Hebrew Association (YMHA) and was a success at impersonations. He won an amateur competition on the Bowery and soon joined vaudeville as a song-and-dance man. He was with many Broadway theatre companies including Ziegfield's and was very successful during the 1920s. In 1914, he married Ida Tobias and changed his name to Eddie Cantor, because his wife said Izzy was not the right name for an actor. They had five girls which provided Cantor with a constant running gag of his unmanageable children. He turned to radio in 1931 and was hugely popular. In 1933, he was elected president of the Screen Actors Guild. He founded the March of Dimes charity to help in the fight against polio. He was a composer, writer, actor, dancer and comedian. He had his own TV show during the early 1950s. Many of his writings were a collaboration with David Freeman. He died from a heart attack, his second, in 1964. His works include Now You Tell One (1927), One and One (1929), The Aches Have It (1929), Your Next President (1932), What the Country Needs Most (1935) and Take My Life (1957).
