Philip Loeb
Birth: Mar. 28, 1891
Death: Sep. 2, 1955

Actor. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from 1916 to the 1940s, he had a long career as a stage performer on Broadway. He also was in a few feature films such as "Room Service" (1938) and "A Double Life" (1947), also the TV shows "The Ford Theatre Hour", "Suspense" and "Molly". Due to the controversy he was a Communist activist, he was put on FBI's black list and was unjustly firing from the movie production of "The Goldbergs" (1950). He denied being a Communist, but the sponsors insisted that he be dropped from the film's cast and Loeb soon resigned, accepting a settlement which was estimated at $40,000. He returned to perform on Broadway for a while, but became very depressed and embittered. He committed suicide by taking an overdose of barbiturates in his hotel room in New York City, just a day before the FBI fully cleared his name. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
