I judge a restaurant by the bread and by the coffee.–Burt Lancaster
Burton Stephen “Burt” Lancaster was an American film actor noted for his athletic physique and distinctive smile. After initially building his career on “tough guy” roles, Lancaster abandoned his “all-American” image in the late 1950s in favor of more complex and challenging roles, and came to be regarded as one of the best actors of his generation as a result. Lancaster was nominated four times for Academy Awards and won once — for his work in Elmer Gantry in 1960. In 1999, the American Film Institute named Lancaster 19th among the greatest male stars of all time.
