The minute I saw the Italian last name, some of your previous clues fell into place. Didn’t know about the potential striptease, though! Did it ever happen, Landmark?

Here we go again:

I was born on February 6, 1917, in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. My parents were both of Jewish ancestry.

I was discovered by the operatic tenor Richard Tauber on a trip to Vienna in 1934, following my time as a student at a Swiss boarding school.

Tauber invited me to sing in his new operetta, Der Singende Traum (The Singing Dream), at the Theater an der Wien.

Hey, we just exceeded 4,000 posts in this thread! Here's another clue:

I started appearing on stage in Vienna, but emigrated to the USA in 1941. My mother escaped the Nazi occupation three years later.

In 1944, I co-wrote a novel entitled “Every Man For Himself.” The fictional story was derived, in a small part, from my life experiences.

My first movie role was in a 1952 MGM film adaptation of a Broadway musical.

That same year, I also starred in a romantic comedy film for 20th Century Fox.

Not Mr. Melchior.

Next, I had a leading role in a British drama film directed by John Huston. He later called my performance “creditable.”

Not Mr. Klemperer ... but your guess brought back memories of Hogan's Heroes!

My roles from the late 1950s up until 1990 ran the gamut of movie-making, including film noirs, comedies, horror films, camp oddities, as well as voicing a character in an animated feature.

Not Mr. Kiley.

In 1970, I purchased a nearly 9,000-square-foot Hollywood Regency-style home in Bel Air, which once belonged to Elvis Presley. It was built by Howard Hughes and featured a copper French style roof.
