An Evening With Norman Lloyd
Wednesday, May 12, 2010 at 7:30 PM

The evening will include a screening of the documentary, “Who Is Norman Lloyd?” and a discussion with Mr. Lloyd about his more than 70 years in theater, motion pictures and television, during which he has excelled as actor, director and producer. During his prolific career, he has worked for and with Orson Welles, Alfred Hitchcock, Charlie Chaplin, Jean Renoir, John Houseman and many others. Actor, director and producer Norman Lloyd began in amateur vaudeville as a boy, studied with Eva Le Gallienne and landed on Broadway in 1935. He joined Orson Welles' Mercury Theater in 1937 in “Julius Caesar,” scoring a hit as Cinna, the Poet. In Hollywood he played the title role in Alfred Hitchcock’s “Saboteur” (1942), appeared in Jean Renoir’s “The Southerner” (1945) and in Chaplin’s final American film, “Limelight,” in 1952. He became a close friend and tennis partner of Chaplin and worked with Lewis Milestone and John Houseman. He also produced the American stage premiere of Berthold Brecht’s “Galileo,” starring Charles Laughton. He was associate producer of 171 episodes of “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” from 1957 to 1962; executive producer of 44 episodes of
“The Alfred Hitchcock Hour,” 1963-65, and producer of 18 during the same span. For eight years and in 132 episodes he played Dr. Daniel Auschlander on television’s “St. Elsewhere.”

At age 95 he still plays tennis twice a week, drives a Jaguar and acknowledges that he is a shameless workaholic.
