S.Z. Sakall

Szőke Szakáll (born Grünwald Jakab, aka Gärtner Sándor and Gerő Jenő; 2 February 1883 – 12 February 1955), known in the English speaking world as S. Z. Sakall, was a Hungarian-American stage and film character actor. He appeared in many films including Christmas in Connecticut (1945), In the Good Old Summertime (1949), Lullaby of Broadway (1951), and Casablanca (1942), in which he played Carl, the head waiter. Chubby-jowled Sakall played numerous supporting roles in Hollywood musicals and comedies in the 1940s and 1950s. His rotund cuteness caused studio head Jack Warner to bestow on Sakall the nickname "Cuddles".
