George Sanders
Birth: Jul. 3, 1906
Saint Petersburg
Saint Petersburg Federal City, Russian Federation
Death: Apr. 25, 1972

Actor. Between 1934 and 1972 he appeared in over 124 films. His films include, "Lloyds Of London" (1936) and "All About Eve" (1950). In 1950 he won an Oscar for his role in "All About Eve" as best supporting actor as the villainous drama critic. Among his television appearances are, "Mission Impossible" (1966-1973), "Batman" (1968), "Daniel Boone" (1964-1970), "The Rogues" (1964-1965), "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." (1964-1968), "Voyages To The The Bottom Of The Sea" (1964-1968), and "Screen Directors Playhouse" (1955-1957).
He sadly committed suicide in 1972.

The death was officially a suicide since he left behind three gentlemanly suicide notes, which read:
"Dear World, I am leaving because I am bored. I feel I have lived long enough. I am leaving you with your worries in this sweet cesspool. Good luck." (with his signature under the message)
