About Anthony Franciosa
Anthony Franciosa (born Anthony George Papaleo, October 25, 1928 – January 19, 2006), usually billed as Tony Franciosa during the height of his career, was an American film, TV and stage actor. He made several feature films, including A Face in the Crowd (1957) and Career (1959) for which he won the Golden Globe for Best Actor/Drama. In television, along with many minor parts, he played lead roles in five television series: the sitcom Valentine's Day (1964–65), drama The Name of the Game (1968–71), Search (1972–73), Matt Helm (1975) and Finder of Lost Loves (1984). However, he began as a successful stage actor, gaining a Tony Award nomination for the drug-addiction play A Hatful of Rain.
On January 19, 2006, Franciosa died at age 77 at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California after suffering a massive stroke. His death followed that of his ex-wife Shelley Winters by five days (Franciosa suffered the stroke the day Winters died, January 14). He is survived by his wife, Rita, his children, Nina, Christopher, and Marco and his grandchildren, Ruby, Cassius, Alistar, and Rye Franciosa.
