Allen Garfield Life and Career

Garfield was born in Newark, New Jersey, to a Jewish family, the son of Alice (née Lavroff) and Philip Goorwitz. A graduate of Weequahic High School, he was a sports reporter and Golden Gloves boxer before becoming an actor. He studied acting at The Actors Studio in New York City, studying with both Lee Strasberg and Elia Kazan, and worked in a stage before a film.

Garfield has appeared in over 100 films and television shows. He is known for playing nervous villains, corrupt businessmen, and politicians. In addition, he has appeared in two art films by German director Wim Wenders, Der Stand der Dinge and Bis ans Ende der Welt. Garfield has one sister, Lois. Quentin Tarantino once studied with Garfield when Tarantino was starting as a filmmaker.

For a year after his father’s death and in tribute to him, Allen used his family name, Goorwitz for his screen credits.

When Garfield suffered a stroke prior to filming his role in The Ninth Gate (1999), director Roman Polanski opted to utilize Garfield’s paralyzed face for his character rather than conceal it or recast the role. Garfield suffered a massive stroke in 2004 and since then has been a long-term nursing care resident at The Motion Picture Home.
