Jack Weston

Biography

Jack Weston (born Jack Weinstein in Cleveland, Ohio, August 21, 1924 – May 3, 1996) was an American stage, film, and television actor. Weston usually played comic roles, in films such as Cactus Flower and Please Don't Eat the Daisies, but also occasionally essayed heavier parts, such as the scheming crook and stalker who, along with Alan Arkin and Richard Crenna, attempts to terrorize and rob a blind Audrey Hepburn in the 1967 film Wait Until Dark. In 1981, Weston appeared on Broadway in Woody Allen's poignant comedy The Floating Lightbulb, for which he was nominated for a Tony award as Best Actor. Other stage appearances included Bells Are Ringing (with Judy Holliday), The Ritz, and Neil Simon's California Suite. Weston married twice, first to actress Marge Redmond. They occasionally appeared together, for example on a 1963 episode of The Twilight Zone, "The Bard", that also featured a young Burt Reynolds. Redmond and Weston divorced and he later remarried. That marriage lasted until his death of lymphoma.
