BIOGRAPHY OF ALAN ARKIN

Actor, director, writer and songwriter. His parents are Jews who emigrated to the United States from Russia and Germany. Born in Brooklyn, he later moved with his family to Los Angeles. He enrolled at Los Angeles State College, but his passion is music, so he soon dropped out of school and began performing with his band ‘The Tarriers’. At the same time he begins to take acting courses. After an interlude at the Compass Theater in St. Louis, he moved to Chicago and together with others he founded the theater improvisation group Second City. In 1963 he moved with the group to New York where he began acting in on and off-Broadway theaters. The following year he stands out with the show “Luv” and the excellent reviews received open the doors of Hollywood to him. His debut film is Norman Jewison’s “The Russians Arrive, the Russians Arrive” (1966) which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Actor (he received a second in 1969 for “The Scream of Silence”, 1968 by Robert Ellis Miller). After directing several plays and a couple of short films (including “People Soup”, 1969, Oscar nominated), in 1971 he made his debut in film directing with “Piccoli homicidi”, followed by “Quella pazza famiglia Fikus” (1977) . Among his greatest hits are Tim Burton’s “Edward Scissorhands” (1990), Sydney Pollack’s “Havana” (1990), Andrew Niccol’s “Gattaca” (1997), Peter’s “Jakob the Liar” (1999) Kassovitz, “The perfect lovers” (2001) by Joe Roth and “Thirteen variations on the theme” (2001) by Jill Sprecher, presented in competition at the 58th Venice Film Festival. Alongside his career as a film and theater actor he continued to cultivate a passion for music, recording records both alone and with some bands, or writing songs for other artists. He has also published several writings including science fiction short stories and children’s books. From 1955 to 1960 he was married to Jeremy Yaffe, with whom he had children Adam and Matthew. In 1964 he married his current wife, actress Barbara Duna, with whom he had their son Anthony. The three sons also chose the path of acting and collaborated with their father in several films.
